Flavorcave and Women of Rock

Two goings-ons that I am psyched for:

First, The Flavor Cave installation, a la Firehouse 13 is having a 3 week Saturday-a-thon on January 13, 20 and 27 with bands and films. Along with all of the other craziness band (MEGASUS) is playing it's first RI show on the 27th. Megasus is Me, Brian Gibson, Jason Kendall and Paul Lyons. I know, shameless self promotion but's is the first hometown show of the Megasus.

Here is a blurb from the Flavorcave site:

Every one hundred years, for three weekends in winter, a miracle of nature, the Flavor Cave, appears. Step inside the Flavor Cave and be forever altered by the spectacle of color and sound! Wonder at the strange landscape and big shiny things!

The Flavor Cave is an installation created by Providence, RI artists The Awesome Brothers. The cave entrance is located at Firehouse 13 (41 Central St., Providence, RI) and will only be open from January 12 - 27, 2007. Every Friday and Saturday night, film and music shows will be held inside the installation involving filmmakers, performers, and musicians from the community and beyond. During each week, the installation will be altered to suit its weekend's flavor.

Second, there is a monsters of rock show happening at AS220 on Jan 21 titled The Women Of Providence ROCK Fest.

A blurbette from the AS220 site:

AWESOME! A Sunday night mini-festival highlighting the women ROCKERS in PVD. Doors at 7pm (really!) - get here early.

Here's the lineup:

The Midnight Creeps
Can't Face the Falling
Made in Mexico
Sweet Thieves
Lolita Black
Set of Red Things
Blue Shift

THE MIDNIGHT CREEPS: Straight out of the bowels of Creepsville USA (uh, Rhode Island) armed with sleazy tales of sin, sex, and destitution come the Midnight Creeps to bring the danger back to rocknroll! Consisting of singer Jenny Hurricane, guitarist Stimbot, bassist Jonas Parmelee, and drummer...ummm...well we don't know who the drummer is right now but anyway the Midnight Creeps specialize in churning out three-minute roller coasters of good gone bad. The Midnight Creeps have toured extensively playing well over 500 shows in the past 4 years both in the US & Europe including such festivals as Holidays in The Sun/Wasted & Viva Le Punk leaving a trail of busted eardrums and broken hearts in their wake. With their latest release, Doomed From the Get Go, the Midnight Creeps give the kick in the ass to Rock n' Roll that the stylists and handlers for The Strokes & Good Charlotte didn't have the guts to give. MADE IN MEXICO (Rebecca Mitchell – vocals Jon Loper – bass Dare Matheson – drums Jeff Schneider – guitar) came into existence when Rebecca Mitchell moved to Providence, Rhode Island from Oklahoma. Mitchell began changing things around when she was asked by Dare Matheson and Jon Loper (members of Providence’s psychedelic freak- out ensemble La Machine) to start a band. They pitched the endeavor as playing live some songs that they had on tapes they had kicking around for years. Jon Loper recalls that “Rebecca called one day and asked me if I was into the idea of dragging Jeff Schneider out. Schneider was a guitarist in Arab On Radar. I’d played with him before so it seemed like a good enough idea to try.” The beginning rehearsals took place at a studio in Providence, RI and it went strangely at first. Everyone tried their best to relax the tension by playing some music that they mutually agreed was good: Captain Beefheart, Devo, Chrome, Amon Duul II, Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, Sleetmute/Nightmute and that’s when writing began. When this writer talked with Jeff all he stated was that “It is not that easy to do it when there are people out there who tried to kill me… musically.”

Happy New Year

So, I went to a Casino Night New Years party...gambled for about 6 hours and went home 3 dollars lighter.

Not too shabby.

Happy New Year!

Oh, and if some jerk that you don't recognize with short red, curly hair is hanging around claiming to be Ryan from is...I cut all of my hair off. 20 years in the making, 20 minutes in the destroying. I still have it though, it is in my closet. I talk to it at night now and pet it. Heh Heh.
