babybaby_explores (the Reasons Why that Gum is Still on the Sidewalk), is a pseudo concept, garage-pop, art-rock project made of three fweaky BFFS from the ghost town clam chowder suburbia Warwick, RI. Utilizing obsolete and low-tech gear, the band makes simple structured danceable songs that pay homage to: musique concrète, European underground synth punk of the late 70’s through the 80's, anthem music, dada, and the Providence DIY & noise scene.

High Command, Final Gasp, v-sect, Ozeregroth feat. Skulptor

October 31, 2022
8:00 pm
Surging with the strength of the early US thrash and crossover scene, HIGH COMMAND projects a scathing display of scorched earth vocals and spiraling divebomb riffs, soaked in napalm leads, and percussive devastation. With competitive and fantasy-inspired lyrical scourge, the band drives their message forth with might and conviction.

DREAM_MEGA, WGS Johnson, All Faux Everythings, Shawn Greenlee

October 23, 2022
8:00 pm
As the lights of the city flicker on through a fading orange haze, the distinct sound of DREAM_MEGA’s debut EP “minus_world” echoes through a maze of damp alleyways. The project of Los Angeles-based artist/musician Joel Kyack, its sound merges analog synthesizers with wind-based instruments like the Thai khlui, harmonica and voice, all filtered through a sweat-soaked fever dream of real-time improvisation, manipulation and looping.

In Plain Sight Closing Reception

October 13, 2022
6:00 pm
In Plain Sight is an exploration of camouflages as military fatigues and concealments. It is a probe into the familiar and obvious, where mundane shapes are both plastic and precious; where anachronistic amphoras bear relevant histories.
