Javelin is back

Plus, Detroit Rebellion hit Manton Ave.

The weekend roars in with some killer shows slated for FRIDAY (the 1st): SIX STAR GENERAL, BROADCASTER, LLOYD'S LLAMAS, and SUICIDE BILL at Firehouse 13 ($5, 401.270.1801); fellow 75orLess Records alums VERTICAL TWIN and WE OWN LAND hit Billy Goode's Tavern in Newport (401.848.5013); DANNY PEASE & THE REGULATORS join FUNGUS AMUNGUS at the Spot (401.383,7133); THIS IS A MOVEMENT, ASK THE DEAD, and SOURPUNCH crash the Apartment (401.228.7222), and at the Met, check out THE EMPIRE SHALL FALL along with ACARO, MECHANICAL PROCESS, and more; all-ages and $18 at the door, dial 401.729.1005. A big week at the Roots Café includes DAR WILLIAMS with special guest BECKY CHACE on Friday (benefiting Marriage Equality RI), and get back there on SATURDAY (the 2nd) and help the EXTRAORDINARY RENDITION BAND raise some gas money for the drive down to Mardi Gras; special guests include ORIGINAL JELLY ROLL SOUL and much more; $10 at the door, call 401.272.7422 for info on both shows. Oh, and Machines with Magnets (401.475.2655) welcomes back acclaimed Brooklyn-via-RISD duo JAVELIN, with MATH THE BAND and DOWNTOWN BOYS supporting. Nice!

Super Bowl SUNDAY (the 3rd) presents the "Har-Bowl" or "Bro-Bowl" or whatever you want to call it (how about "Har-i-Bowl"). Who gives a shit? Take the 49ers -3.5 and the over.

The Spot is the best place in town to kickstart the work week, with 990WBOB.com's Mondays on Blast live music series, and this MONDAY (the 4th) features ANDREW SPATZ, THE CAN'T NOTS, TORN SHORTS (new album out now!) and SKINNY MILLIONAIRES. Plus, no cover charge all night! And next THURSDAY (the 7th), the Roots will host PVD newcomers LOCAL LIGHTS as well as Vertical Twin and The Can't Nots ($5, doors at 7 pm), then head toward Olneyville and join DETROIT REBELLION at Chilangos Taqueria (447 Manton Ave.) for a special CD release pre-party! Doors at 10 pm with $5 drink specials and $2.50 cans of Tecate. See you there.
