(9.17) The outdoor parking lot showcase returns with Jukebox Fest this Sunday at Nick-A-Nee’s on South Street. Organizers describe the event as a “playlist on shuffle.” Music starts at 2pm. Bar is open from 1pm to 1am, cash only (atm on premises). As always the event is free, but throw some cash into the tip buckets for the bands. Here’s the schedule:
2pm: Vudu Sister/ dark goth folk duo2:45: How’s About Charlie/ folk Americana3:30: Ben Richard / country bluesy folk jams4:15: Geo Trio / multi-genre instrumental5pm: Tall Teenagers / moody fuzz rock6pm: Hope Anchor / soul-fueled rock & roll7:30pm: House Combo / songs you know by the ones you love9pm: Exploding Zones / weird psych9:45: Sullest / stoner punk10:30: Twin Foxes/ indie punk11:15: Fine / grunge pop
There’s lots to like here, but don’t miss the “fuzzed-out alt rock” of Exploding Zones. Recommended if you like the Horrors, Sunflower Bean, Black Angels. Complete disclosure: Drummer Eric Smith was a co-founder of the Providence Daily Dose! But check out the new album on Bandcamp — it is great.
