It was Friday night and everything was just right at The Spot in Providence. One of the hottest folk-rock acts in the city in Consuelo's Revenge put on a extravaganza to celebrate the release of their self-titled debut album. The bill was stacked with Dylan Sevey, Smith & Weeden and Girls Guns & Glory sharing the stage. Folk, country and good ol' fashioned rock & roll resonated through the speakers which always means a good time. If you were on a musical treasure hunt in downtown Providence on this night of nights, then The Spot was definitely where the x was marked.

Dylan Sevey

Dylan Sevey started things off playing solo with his jet black acoustic guitar and he showed how consistent he can be as a musician with his bluesy rock tunes and frictionlessly smooth voice. "Dear Pandora", "Dreams That I Dream About You", "Good Week", switching to mandolin to play the Celtic classic "Black Jack Davey", The Beatles' "Don't Let Me Down", "Yearlong Autumn" and "We Can Get Things Right" encompassed a beautifully intimate performance. Dylan Sevey and his band The Gentlemen will be performing next at The Spot as part of the first night of The Artistic Explosion Music Festival to benefit music education in Rhode Island during 990WBOB's Mondays On Blast on April 22nd. Come on down and check out on of the best bands in Rhode Island while donating to a great cause.

Smith & Weeden

Next up was a rock & roll band that blows through the speakers unlike anyone else, Smith & Weeden with Diamond Rugs' Bryan Dufresne guesting on drums turned the amps up to 11 and tore the stage apart. "Wonderin'", "Aim To Please", "Sunshine", "Grace & Glory", "Boys In Bands", "Drinking Through Some Issues" and "Playin' A Apart" showed what Smith & Weeden does best, and that's rocking your face off to oblivion. Smith & Weeden will be playing next at The Gas Lamp Grill in Newport on April 20th with Castle, make your way up for what should be a blazingly good time.

Consuelo's Revenge

Raring and blaring folk-blues, Consuelo's Revenge brought the fury as they rang in the release of their self-titled debut to Providence and beyond. "Pasadena", "When I Die", "Just The Drugs", "Leave The World Behind", a rendition of Tom Waits' "How's It Gonna End", "Freedom", a version of Bob Dylan's "When My Ship Comes In", "Black Ball Row", "Forest Flower Waltz", "Well Well Well", "Smile", a cover of The Rolling Stones' "Sweet Virginia" and "Henry Lee" had people going crazy and cheering after each song. I managed to pick up a copy of their self-titled debut and it's simply stunning. Consuelo's Revenge will be playing the last night of The Artistic Explosion Music Festival to benefit music education in Rhode Island at Firehouse 13 on April 27th, you better head there and see one of the premier up and coming bands in Providence that'll make your jaw drop in amazement.

Girls Guns & Glory

Last up to finish off the night from Boston was Girls Guns & Glory with their rhythmic country rock that was the cherry on top to a fantastic evening. A spectacular performance that included "Things These Days", "Snake Skin", "This Old House", "All The Way Up", "Keep On Calling", "Holiday Heartache", "Baby You're A Dog", "667", a version of Hank Williams' "Move It On Over" and a rendition of The Beatles' "Yer Blues" had people shaking their hips and letting everything hang out. The people wanted more and Girls Guns & Glory delivered with the Johnny Cash classic "Folsom Prison Blues" and a groovy impromptu jam session to cap off one hell of a show.

The Spot has that infectious vibe that flows through you and always has you in the mood to enjoy everything around you, must be something in the beer. To see what's happening next, log on to thespotprovidence.com for everything you need to know about one of the coolest places to go.
