This Saturday it's the 17th year for the Foo Fest run by AS220 in Providence. We're late to the party for this but did check it out last year and it was a perfectly run event. They block off a street and charge about $5 and have two bands going all day (one inside and one outside). There's plenty of food vendors. It's a great chance to check out the downtown and some Providence music. The FOO FEST WEBSITE.

in August Some of New England's best
Record Sellers will be joined by excellent Vintage and DIY Handmade
Vendors, making for a unique shopping experience where attendees will find
great one-of-a-kind items available nowhere else. There will be all sorts of
Music-Related Items including many different formats of Vinyl Records, CDs,
Cassettes + 8-Track Tapes. there will also likely be Music + Audio Gear plus
rare Music Magazines, Silk Screened Posters + Promotional Items. There will
