More fireworks

Deer Tick, Chachi, and Barn Burning

The live circuit remains abuzz during this post-holiday stretch, leading off with a red-hot DEER TICK playing a freebie at Waterplace Park on FRIDAY (the 8th), courtesy of 'BRU's Summer Concert Series (show starts around 7 pm). Indie-folksters should be flocking to the Apartment (21+, no cover, 401.228.7222) for a nice double bill featuring locals THE DENVER BOOT and BARN BURNING (welcome back). A hefty rap roster is on tap Friday when CHRIS DA GREAT, RIZING OF THE PHOENIX, and PRESENT RHYMES perform at AS220 (401.831.9327), while a "Best of RI Hip-Hop Showcase" at Firehouse 13 certainly lives up to its billing with local rhyme-slinging experts META P, BIG RUSH, MILEZ GRIMEZ & 8TH WUNDAH, WHO DEM?, RENAISSANCE, and more; by far the best $7 you'll drop all weekend, call 401.270.1801. On SATURDAY (the 9th), the Spot Underground hosts SANTA MAMBA (if you're in the mood to work up a dance floor lather), while CHACHI CARVALHO leads the way at the Met (401.729.1005) with his "Independents Day" jam celebrating Cape Verdean hip-hop with guests including TEM BLESSED, D. LOPES, SHOKANTI, and many more ($10 at the door, all ages). Get there. Ahead to WEDNESDAY (the 13th): FH13 brings Sweden's TRUCKFIGHTERS with heavy-duty local support from VILLAINER, WOOZY, SWEET LOVE, and OLNEYVILLE SOUND SYSTEM (!), all for only $7; AS220 hosts OC45, 4 POINT 0, and THE CAN'T NOTS; and Machines With Magnets brings the monumental noise with YOB, THE BODY, DARK CASTLE, and NOOSE (401.475.2655).
