On Saturday, April 26, The Launch Music and Arts Festival will be taking over downtown Providence, and you’re going to want to be a part of it. This enormous outdoor event, open to all ages, will run from 2:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. at the Providence Rink at the Bank of America City Center just down the hill. Various live music acts and DJs, including 3LAU, Kevin Drew, Grand Theft and more, will be playing throughout the afternoon and evening. Guests will also be able to enjoy local performance art such as trapeze and stilt walking, and will be able to participate in live art activities like a graffiti wall, henna tattoos, and paint stations. The Launch is also a completely “GO GREEN” friendly event, and all concession venders will be using biodegradable materials and utensils.
Tickets are $25, all inclusive, and available for purchase here.
Gym. Tan. Laundry. Spin.
Need something to do Saturday night? Chances are this won’t solve that problem–but, just in case, we’re obliged to tell you that everyone’s second or third favorite Jersey Shore cast member will be dropping mad beats at the Twin River Casino in Lincoln, Rhode Island this Saturday, November 23.
Yes, that’s right, people. DJ Pauly D (a.k.a. Paul DelVecchio a.k.a. someone you forgot existed) will be returning to his home state to play all his music that we definitely know.
Tickets are actually selling fast because, bizarrely, the 33-year-old Providence native has accumulated a fervent and adoring Rhode Island fanbase. In 2010, his mere visit to a friend at University of Rhode Island incited a riot resulting in an official URI rule: Pauly D can no longer come on campus unannounced. The GTL guru is acutely aware of his adoring fans in Rhode Island, having humbly tweeted after the event, “See what happens when I’m in town for 1 day Lmaooo.”
