An open mic for refreshingly depressing sad stories and poems.
Hosted by Joe-Lou from Squarepop.com

Come out and vent with us. Got a story you couldn’t tell because you didn’t wanna crush the mood? Now’s your chance. Maybe your poems are a bit too drab for yer local coffee shop? Bring them here.

Rants are welcome! No preperation is nessisary.
Bummer club is not always fun- but it is engaging and cathartic.

Beeramid Scheme, Test Tube, Business Class, and Primitive Engines @ AS220 Main Stage
Dec 19 @ 9:00 pm – Dec 20 @ 1:00 am

BEERAMID SCHEME:

18765798_1823363227980800_8651996233034773517_n

Beeramid Scheme is a musical omelette of hardcore punk and sarcastic, dry humor. Musical influences include Black Flag, Dead Milkmen, Suicidal Tendencies, Stormtroopers of Death, Dead Kennedys, and a little bit of AxCx. We’re looking to get out and play our wonderful music to anyone who is willing to listen to it. The faint of heart or those easily upset should stay home.

BUSINESS CLASS:

Screen Shot 2017-10-19 at 11.38.10 AM

Business Class was formed on Halloween 2016. The original line-up was Dan Hoyt, 16 (now 17) and who was the lead songwriter for the band, and Michael Tenreiro, 13 (Now 14). Since then, they have released an album called Ignite! on May 12th, 2017. The album has been given a 4/5 on Music Emissions and they have stated, “Ignite! is a worthy debut album. It adds a twist to seventies punk without shamelessly trying to ape it. Musically, it is competent, though the vocals are sometimes a little weak and struggle to hold a key. Whether Rhode Island is big enough for the band, or culturally noticeable enough to bring the band to the attention of a wider audience remains to be seen. The band has the potential to reach that wider audience and deserves shot.” (Link to Review: http://www.musicemissions.com/artists/albums/index.php?album_id=18816).

TEST TUBE:

Isaac, Graham and Nate came together to play gigs on the grass at Brown University and something just clicked. Maybe it was screaming “I’m too fucking huge for England” at 20 people trying to enjoying their afternoon on the quad. But probably not. By some divine miracle, these three rock n’ rollers got the people on their feet, head bobbin, and singin along. Punk’s not dead yet.

PRIMITIVE ENGINES:

are a two-piece guitar and trombone assault combining folksy songwriting with bombastic, spacey themes.

Geek Dinner! @ AS220 Main Stage
Dec 20 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Amara Berry is the founder of the Sparkle Program (Science Projects Art & Robotics for Kids to Learn Everywhere). She joins us at the last Providence Geeks of the year to share her work with Rhode Island kids.
The event itself is FREE! Beverages and food are for sale at AS220’s excellent bar and restaurant.

Doors open at 5:30pm. Socializing, eating and drinking up until the 15 min presentation/q&a around 6:30. Afterwards, back to socializing, eating, drinking.

It’s totally casual. Wear whatever, bring whomever, arrive and take off whenever! And don’t worry about eating or not – come famished or full – eating is optional, and frankly, the least of the festivities (that’s not to say the food isn’t good – it’s actually great).

Topics of conversation will vary as they will at any gathering of geeks, but many of us will be talking about start-ups, new devices, innovative business models, 3d printing, interaction design, social computing, digital art, web services, and more! There is Wi-Fi so bring your connected device of choice.
