We've done gone and lost count of how many times we've hosted SCREAMING FEMALES,
but we're gonna guess it's been about 7 times now. One could say the venue has a collective crush on the band, and it seems the feeling is mutual! They'll be coming through with Providence dance-punks DOWNTOWN BOYS
and with local support by a pair of amazing hometown acts: FAT SPIRIT (formerly known as Heavy Midgets)
and power-pop all-stars CHERRY PITS!
STRANGE MATTER T-SHIRTS EXIST! Thanks to our good buddy Will Towles for this badass artwork. Pick one up at the bar for $12.50!
Many thanks to our pal Armistead Spottswoode over at WCVE's Midnight Frights for producing this cool little spot extolling our many virtues. All you dingleberries on iPhones (or any dingleberries who can't see the embedded video) should click here.
Be sure to tune in to your Community Idea Station every Saturday at midnight for Midnight Frights.
