The climactic SoundSession '10 weekend begins FRIDAY (the 23rd); head out and support some of Rhody's finest, including AUDIO McSWAGGER at the Black Rep, JESS POWERS (of Route .44), AFROSONIC COLLECTIVE and WUNMI at Firehouse 13, and a stacked bill at the Grant's Block stage downtown featuring THE COMING WEAK, THE 'MERICANS, THE COBRA-MATICS, and more.

And get your rest for the SS'10 finale on SATURDAY (the 24th); kick back with THE BOURBON BOYS, MISS WENSDAY, and JOHNNY CARLEVALE early, catch TRIANGLE FOREST headline at the ice rink, hop the parade trail with the WHAT CHEER? BRIGADE, then hoot and howl and help crown a beauty in Narragansett's Miss Hi Neighbor! pageant. More than 12 hours of live music and debauchery, so y'all pace yourselves and play nice out there.
