Six straight days of live action on tap here! On FRIDAY (the 4th) Mark Cutler's MEN OF GREAT COURAGE rock out at Nick-a-Nee's (21+, no cover, 401.861.7290). On SATURDAY (the 5th), start your Cinco de Mayo debauchery at the PROVIDENCE ROCK + ROLL YARD SALE at Grants Block (Westminster & Union streets) at 2 pm, and free admission! Plenty of vintage goodies and vinyl with guest DJs spinning all day. Then head to Local 121 for BOO CITY and BIRD DOG (401.274.2121). And here's a pair of quality shows from the 75orLess records stable for our South Coast friends come Saturday: the Black Watch Pub hosts THE BLOOD MOONS and THE MOLDY SUITCASES (21+, 508.997.0023), while noisemonger locals BAYLIES BAND and OLNEYVILLE SOUND SYSTEM join MIKE MOUNTAIN for a killer freebie at the Pour Farm (508.990.1123). On SUNDAY (the 6th), hometown indie-folk heroes BROWN BIRD return to the Met (401.729.1005) as Lamb and Swain get set for a nationwide jaunt with acclaimed kin Horse Feathers. Grab tix in advance as this one will most likely sell out by showtime. On MONDAY (the 7th), get to Firehouse 13 early to catch THE WASHINGTONS and THE BROTHER KITE opening for Chicago's Archie Powell and the Exports ($8, 401.270.1801; see 8 Days for more). On TUESDAY (the 8th), SUPERSUCKERS, SKINNY MILLIONAIRES, and THE McGUNKS are at the PVD Social Club (401.454.7177). And a pair of nice shows on WEDNESDAY (the 9th) features JOCIE ADAMS (of the Low Anthem), THE HONEY BROWN, and MOISCHE at the Met, while Local 121's Speakeasy will host ALLYSEN CALLERY, CAROLINE HECHT, and HAUNT THE HOUSE kicking out the folk jams; doors at 7 pm with a $6 cover.
