Weekend Preview: FH13

As the grinding ice floe of this week rapidly collides with Friday, I'm told that the mercury is going to cooperate; so, hopefully leaving the house without dying a little bit will be an option. I'm recommending the cozy goodness of Firehouse No. 13 as a venue for washing away those winter blues this weekend, as they've got a spate of programming in store:

Friday 2/6: If you are not yet stricken with the late winter ick, arrive early for the return of Providence's own Low Anthem at Firehouse No. 13 tonight. The band is having a special ticket pre-sale on their website, so early-birds get the worm. Word has it that Low Anthem heads to the jolly old stomping grounds of Austin for SXSW 2009...something tells me it won't be easy to catch them in a small venue after that, so be forwarned.

Roil and Flush: Exhibition of work by Will Machin and Anna Shapiro - FH13 Feb 4-28

The opening reception, from 6-9pm will be followed by live entertainment from Allysen Callery and the Land of Nod, Tallahassee, Brown Bird, Ben Pilgrim and The Free Union Band & Alec K. Redfearn.
