There are few places I’d rather spend a Friday night than at The Columbus Theatre in Providence. This probably isn’t the first time you’ve heard me say that. Every show there is special, whether it’s in the larger room or the more intimate upstairs. But when you put two over-the-top talented singer-songwriters on the small stage in the same night… well, you’d be a damned fool to miss it. The main attraction last Friday night was Ian Felice, front man and main songwriter for the lovable charlatans The Felice Brothers. A songwriter’s songwriter and talented poet, this year Felice released…

Song of the Week | BLND TGR – Heartbreaker

This week’s WFMO X Music Savage Show “Song of the Week” spotlight is on the fantastic new single, “Heartbreaker,” from Brooklyn trio BLND TGR. The track is the 2nd song released from the band’s forthcoming debut EP due out January 2018. There is not much currently known about the mysterious band that formed earlier in 2017, releasing their debut single, “Lock N Load,” just a few months ago, but the buzz on the electronic-pop three-piece is already in full swing and I am super excited to jump on the BLND TGR train to help spread the word to WMFO and Music…

It had been a solid 8 years since I’d seen that much energy packed into a few hours. This past Friday night at Once Somerville, Ron Gallo, Naked Giants, and Gym Shorts stormed the stage and left all of those in attendance grinning like fools and wondering what just hit them. If you’ve never seen Ron Gallo and his cohorts perform their wizardry, the experience is something you should set your mind to getting out for. From the opening trumpet call and reading, to the band member swap with Naked Giants to the closing, thrashing Beatles cover, there isn’t a…
