5 Live Music Musts: Friday, July 12th

Friday, July 12, 2013

 

This weekend brings the once-in-a-lifetime chance to see music legend B.B. King live in concert. Don't miss it!

Rookies and veterans, young and old, we’ve got your Five Live Music Musts for the upcoming weekend.

The man, the myth, the legend–the Wikipedia definition of the Blues is in town tonight. B.B. King will be rockin’ the joint at the Newport Sunset Concert Series. Along with his great backing band, now’s the time to see him–he’ll surely be on tour for another 20-30 years–you, maybe not! A few tickets remain–starting at $45.50. RI’s own Boo City opens at 7:00; B.B. is onstage at 8:00.

Also tonight, go local in Providence and rock out to the Cold War Kids. They’re at Waterplace Park for the final concert of the WBRU Summer Concert Series. The California based Kids have gotten a lot of attention lately and should feature the high energy tunes from their new album Dear Miss Lonelyhearts. The free show begins at 7:30.

A busy Saturday night starts at Lupos with Streetlight Manifesto. The New Jersey based punk/ska outfit is just what you need to blow up the weekend. Their latest album, The Hands That Thieve, is getting great reviews. Tickets are $17.50 in advance, $20.00 at the door...show starts at 7:00. Rodeo Ruby Love and Empty Orchestra open.

And if you didn’t get enough of the King of the Blues on Friday, Chan’s has “Junior,” as in Luther “Guitar Jr.” Johnson and the Magic Rockers for two shows on Saturday. The 74 year old Grammy Award winner has recorded with Magic Sam, Muddy Waters, and many others. Click here for a review of their January show at Chan’s. Shows are at 8:00 and 10:00. Tickets are $15, $10, and only $18 for both shows.

Finally, on Saturday at Dusk, there will be a local star-studded lineup to benefit RHD-RI, an arts based program in Providence that serves people with disabilities. Lolita Black, The Viennagram and Boo City will be part of what should be one heck of a show. It all starts at 8pm and there's a $6 donation at the door.
