Pete Davidson At RIC

(3.16) SNL regular Pete Davidson will bring his stand-up to Rhode Island College this Thursday. He is the vulnerable, baby-faced cutie who dishes up hard truths and goofy insights in equal proportion. Davidson has certainly earned that vulnerability; he was seven-years-old when his father, a

Fundraiser For Lovecraft Statue At Athenaeum

(3.16) Hey, Cthulhu got named-checked on Samantha Bee the other night. Here he is up to his tentacles in executive orders. That’s how big a deal Lovecraft is — a Cthulhu reference goes unexplained. (Of course, her writers are probably . . . never mind.)

Kilmartin Tries Some Gorilla Dust

What Attorney General Peter F. Kilmartin doesn’t want you thinking about right now: His role as one of the legislators who voted ‘yes’ to pass the legislation that paved the way for the disastrous, state-backed 38 Studios loan. His role in the subsequent four-year investigation

Italian Film Festival At Brown — Gelato

‘The Nether’ At Gamm

Another great poster from Gamm, this one for their production ‘The Nether’ written by Jennifer Haley. Is it the blue that makes it creepy, or the little girl. About the play, Log in. Choose an identity. Live out your private dreams. This is life in

Composting Conference At RIC

(3.9) Code Brown at such-and-such. That is the wry signal from the Providence Mounted Command to the Public Works Department when the shovel-and-bucket brigade is needed. Gorgeous stuff horse manure, and I’m sure the parks department puts it to good use. This Thursday the Environment

‘Message From The Gyre’ Two Events

(3.4) It’s almost pretty. Yet this is but a small corner of “Plastic Bottles,” Chris Jordan’s monumental image depicting the two million plastic beverage bottles used in the United States every 15 minutes. And this is the least distressing image on view at “Message from
