Welcome back!

Off the Couch
Great guitar-fueled, free-of-charge music kicks off the weekend on THURSDAY (the 1st) with MARK CUTLER & THE TINY STRING BAND at Doherty’s East Ave. Cafe (401.725.1800), while THE KILLDEVILS (with special guest Marty Ballou) return to Nick-a-Nee’s (401.861.7290). On FRIDAY (the 2nd), STALEMATE and A TROOP OF ECHOES play the Colosseum (formerly and forever known as the Complex); the first 80 heads through the door will receive a free Stalemate disc, call 401.497.4200 for details. At AS220 (401.831.9327), it’s Swedish grrrl-power rock from THE BOMBETTES, with locals ARCING in support. And the Deer Tick doubleheader (with the don’t-miss-’em THOSE DARLINS) kicks off on Friday at Jerky’s (18+); on SATURDAY (the 3rd) they head down Broad Street to Firehouse 13 (all-ages); both shows are $15 at the door, and both will likely be sold out by showtime. A good South Coast show of note on Saturday is a 75orLess Records twin-bill with THE JESSE MINUTE (sounding better than ever with a new rhythm section on board) and THE BLOOD MOONS playing the Pour Farm in New Bedford; no cover charge, call 508.990.1123. And at the Ocean Mist (401.782.3740), a fistful of punk vets take the stage, including NEUTRAL NATION, DOPEY LOPES, and BRUNT OF IT. Head down early, the stacked lineup starts at 9 pm. Looking ahead, on TUESDAY (the 6th), AS220 hosts new local thrashers LIFERS with Psonen and Gunslingers, $7 at the door. And on WEDNESDAY (the 7th), local blues legend PAUL GEREMIA visits the Speakeasy at Local 121 downtown, call 401.272.2121.
