Couldn't let a fantastic bill like Gene Dante and the Future Starlets and Sidewalk Driver. go by without going to check them out. It was great of course. Gene Dante is such a sexy super star type and I am always in awe of Tad from Sidewalk Driver. He brings out the seamstress in my and next thing you know I'm thinking about the fab clothes I'd love to sew up for him!! He certainly has a fashion sense all his own....both he and Gene have killer great voices and fabulous bands ....check out this double bill next time you see it listed!!
With the weather taking a break from the sub-tropical it seemed like a good chance to do an outside thing on Saturday in Providence. It was called the Foo Fest, a celebration of 25 years of AS220 (the Providence art collective). It was a nicely done and comfortable street fair. It was much smaller than say the Central Square Fair and I liked that. There was a five dollar entrance fee also. The music was eclectic. I saw Route 44 a hard to define group with a great sax player and a female singer with a powerful and inspiring voice. I also caught Example: None a duo who does Ed Moose Savage-style singing poetry rants.
There was an Anarchist book sale there which put an edge into the affair. There were some good food vendors from the area including a grilled pizza place and one featuring fine barbecued meat 'sliders' two for $5.
The Fest went from 1am to 1pm. The whole affair was a model on how to pull something like this off. AS220 is a unique entity for Providence good luck to them in the future.
