Live Bait! Obey @ AS220 Main Stage
Dec 6 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Live Bait Presents: Obey

Who do you obey (or not)? Who obeys you (or not)? Do you obey rules or disobey rules? Whose rules: your own or others’? How about The Law?

December’s Live Bait theme is, as always, up for interpretations, so long as it’s true. That’s our rule. Will you obey…?

Bring your true “Obey” stories to Live Bait on Friday, December 6th. Put your name in the fishbowl and, when called, come up and tell your story. Remember, please: no notes, no rants, no aimless ramblings, no stand-up routines, and there is a six-minute time limit. Of course, you are more than welcome to simply sit back and listen.

Live Bait is hosted by Phil Goldman, with banter, musical accompaniment and monthly theme song by Jerry “The Professor” Gregoire.

“Providence Lost” Screening + Discussion @ AS220 Main Stage
Dec 15 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Providence Lost, a short nonfiction film, follows a family undergoing an eviction and their subsequent search for a new home. In 2018, the Trottiers were one of more than 8,000 households to be evicted in Rhode Island. Their struggle against soaring rents and a dysfunctional safety net is shared by a majority of renters across the state. This portrait of a city divided, between the promise of glamorous development and the reality of our current housing crisis, forces us to reckon with the human cost of change, and asks us to imagine the possibility of a city for all.

Meeting #8
An open mic for refreshingly depressing rants, sad stories and poems.

Rants are welcome! No preparation is necessary.

Hosted by Joe-Lou (Space Heater & Squarepop.com)

Ben Shaw is a Rhode Island based composer and multi-instrumentalist who, as a singer/songwriter, digs into the uniqueness of American music and seeks to blend all its facets together for a rich experience where the sounds of old folk ballads and raging second line rhythms can be heard alongside lush harmonies and contemporary styles, all with the craft of a honed musician
