The [email protected] has done it again putting together an amazing show, perfect for all the folks who don’t get up at 4am to go shopping on a friday.

Lenny Lashley’s Gang of One

Rock legend Lenny Lashley, veteranĀ of such punk greats Darkbuster and Street Dogs, is keeping it real with his latest project, which started a little like this:

A good friend (Joe Koukos [Holdfast Records, Asbury Park, NJ]) introduced Lenny to Bouncing Souls guitarist, Pete Steinkopf, to record and produce a 3 song 7″ picture disc record. Originally intended to be a singer/songwriter styled recording, the project took a life of its own with luminaries Pete Steinkopf and Bryan Keinlen from The Bouncing Souls and Joe Sirois from The Mighty Mighty Bosstones lending their talents to the recording. Following the release of the EP, Lenny began to record his follow-up effort, a 10 song full length record. Once again, Pete, Bryan, and Joe joined in, as well as Bouncing Souls drummer Michael McDermott and many other talented musicians. The result is “Illuminator.”

The result is unmistakably Boston punk…

Opening for Lenny is one of the best bands to come out of Newport in recent years..

Skinny Millionaires

Skinny Millionaires

If you’ve spent any time around the Newport music scene, you know the Skinny Millionaires. If not, here’s a taste of why they’re called one of the best original acts to come out of the City-By-The-Sea since the ’90s.

We can’t forget “the best band you’ve never heard of” We Own Land, though at this point, it’s getting harder and harder not to have heard of them.

Lastly, because there weren’t enough Mikes in the show already, there’s Mickey Rickshaw, who are a combination of punk band and 7-11 mystery shoppers.

More show details.

See you at get to 200 Broadway in Newport, RI for 9pm tonight and finish your Black Friday right!
