Briana White, Keith A/B, and Jenna Andreozzi @ AS220 Main Stage
Aug 22 @ 9:30 pm – Aug 23 @ 12:30 am

Briana White is a 25 year old Singer/Songwriter from Providence, RI whose passion for connecting to people through her music has taken her all over the country, from Chicago, to New York, to Maryland and throughout New England. A lyricist as well as a musician, Briana hopes that her audience can identify with and relate to the stories behind her songs. Her style ranges from soft-spoken acoustic pop to rock-driven anthems.

In 2012, Briana attended Berklee College of Music where she studied to become a professional musician. In 2013, guitar in hand, she set off for Chicago.

Since then she has played numerous venue and events in Chicago including the Kollaboration Chicago Asian-American talent competition where she placed third, and has performed throughout New England.

Briana now lives at home in Providence, RI where she continues to pursue her music and plans to release an EP by the Fall of 2017.

Keith A/B is a singer-songwriter from the Providence, RI area. His solo performances feature his aggressive electric and acoustic guitar, clear soulful vocals and memorable lyrics.Keith does not fit the typical singer-songwriter formula and that’s OK with him. His music finds the sweet spot between indie, garage, soul and vintage rock. He’s at home in both the coffee shop or loud rock stage and his songs will make you laugh, cry and pump your fists all within 3 minutes.

Keith’s new EP, Unbridled Optimism, has just been released on 75 or Less Records.

She currently has out on single titled ‘December’ on iTunes, Spotify, and other major music streaming sites, and she loves to be able to share apart of herself with the world.

TRAVELING EMPIRE:

tumblr_oqs6jzMPnh1w7i99yo1_1280

In the vein of The Dead Milkmen, early Meat Puppets & REM. Traveling Empire brings acoustic punk rock with a taste of country, blues, and jazz. Previously Reverend Bastien & the Congregation of the Traveling Empire. The fat has been trimmed and the energy up’d. Having played in local punk/thrash bands F*ckhead Five & All Those Opposed, Bastien is back with a total mid life crisis. Come drink, dance, and remember a time before smart phones.

 

GHOSTS OF INDUSTRY:

19023462_427468474304273_2859674466372259075_o

There is always a fork in the road with the blues. Where you take it is as complex as your veins. Whether its thru a swamp or cramped corner of the city, the blues so often lay the foundation for communicating musically.

Ghosts Of Industry explore the limitless possibilities of the blues and Rock and Roll through a minimal lineup of a two string slide bass, Guitar and Drums. Creating textures and soundscapes to fill the alleyways, or to drift over the fields. These soundscapes lay the foundation for stories to be told, set to rhythms to move you.

HEALING COW:

17918056_1824405061213938_7360047405782395863_o

Healing Cow is composed of four college students from schools around Boston. Precise, energetic, and catchy, the band uses the diverse musical backgrounds of each member to create an exciting Indie Garage rock group. Healing Cow is a demon and a friend.

Jake Menendez, James Paternoso, and Team Jacob @ AS220 Main Stage
Aug 30 @ 9:00 pm – Aug 31 @ 1:00 am

teamjacob are songs written with Twilight in mind and spirit.

James Paternostro is a 23 year old acoustic singer/songwriter originally from Essex, Connecticut who recently moved to Providence in June in order to further the pursuits of his musical dreams. James has been playing guitar for 9 years and has been singing and writing music for 7 years. He places a heavy precedence on lyrical content and feeling and views his songs like personal diary entries doused in allegory and metaphor that only he knows the full meaning to (although at times he still doesn’t) with the music serving as a backing track that captures the emotional essence of each entry. James has a wide variety of musical tastes and influences that range from Elton John to The Wutang Clan and everything else in between. That being said, some artists that specifically capture his imagination time and again include Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Dave Matthews, Jeff Buckley, Joni Mitchell, Sufjan Stevens, and Milo (in particular his album So The Flies Don’t Come, he calls it what everyone associated with and listening to modern hip hop should be taking note of but isn’t).

Live Bait: Luck of the Draw @ AS220 Main Stage
Sep 1 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Live Bait Announces a New Regular Time, New Regular Space

Plus a New Format (this time only): Luck of the Draw

Live Bait Logo v2

“Live Bait: True Stories from Real People” is pleased to announce that, starting September 1st, it will be moving to a new venue and will be starting at a new, earlier, more convenient time. Live Bait will be moving one whole door over, to the AS220 Main Stage, at 115 Empire Street in beautiful Downtown Providence. Additionally, due to popular – and sleep-deprived – demand, Live Bait will be starting at an earlier time: 7:00pm!

To celebrate these new, exciting changes, there will be a twist in September’s show. Call it “Luck of the Draw.” Instead of names picked out of the fishbowl, there will be a bowl full of themes. A reverse Live Bait, if you will. If there’s a particular theme picked that tickles anybody’s fancy and/or reminds them of a story, they can yell, “I got it!” then come up on the stage and tell it.

As always, Live Bait is a forum for true stories: no notes, no rants, no aimless ramblings, no stand-up routines, and there is a six-minute time limit. Of course, all 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.
