Sully’s Café at the Spot

Start tonight at The Spot in Providence where a gaggle of great bands will be at the 5th anniversary of Sully’s Café.

Music starts at 9:15.

Tempest at Blackstone Theatre

Fans of Celtic Rock will not want to miss San Francisco band Tempest, tonight at the Blackstone Valley Theatre. The band plays high energy folk-rock with influences from Scotland, Ireland and Norway. They’ve recently released a new album celebrating their 25th anniversary as a band. Tickets are $13 in advance, $15 at the door – show begins at 8PM.

B.B. King at Lupo’s
