BREAKING: Belly Returns To Newport This Weekend!

By  |  0 Comments

One of Rhode Island’s biggest ’90s alternative bands is playing two shows, July 8 & 9!

The ’90s were a weird and wonderful time for music. The decade started with hair metal reigning supreme until suddenly Seattle exploded with something called “grunge” and everything changed.



While Seattle had Nirvana and Pearl Jam and Soundgarden, every Rhode Island high schooler knew that our state had Belly. (Plenty of people in other states knew them too, given the kind of fame that put them on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine [back when it was a barometer of such things].)Belly Band RI

Of course, if you’re reading this, chances are that you already know who Belly is. You know they broke up in the fall of 1995 and went their separate ways.

Given the headline, you can probably guess that they’ve gotten the band back together…and you also know that they’re playing in Newport this weekend. What you’re probably wondering is…
