Wes’ Rib House Block Party

(6.29) Wes’ Rib House celebrates its grand opening (some would say reopening — the sign does say 1973) this Saturday with live music, wrestling, and a pig roast. Providence’s own Sage Francis*, forefather of indie hip-hop and founder of Strange Famous Records, headlines a day of music. Looks like plenty of room (hope they invited The Dye House). Bring a lawn chair and enjoy:

Sage Francis/ Eric and the Nothing/ Ashley Soto

Othannah Tomasina/ An Artist Named Flizz

High Planes/ Joata

Live wrestling presented by Beyond Wrestling.

Stop by with the kids between 4:30pm and 6:30pm for face painting and temporary tattoos by Art on the Spot.

*Fun fact: Mr. Francis’s 2003 album Hope was named after Rhode Island’s motto of hope. And Mr. Francis is a URI alum!

Wes’ Rib House Block Party, noon to 8pm, Saturday, June 29, Wes’ Rib House, 38 Dike Street, (directions)
