HxC: Marching into Spring

PVD music is more explosive and dynamic than ever before. The bands coming through the area in the next month spread over a wide range of genres, from gritty punk to fluffy pop punk, all of which have their own special sound to share with our music-loving city. Aurora PVD has something going on almost every day of the week. Starting March off strong, they have a free show with locals Hussy. Each band playing this show pushes the limits and barriers of sound to the very peak. The Met has some big names this spring including Four Year Strong, pop punk legends from Massachusetts. They are celebrating their 10-year anniversary of their record Rise or Die Trying. This show is sold out! The end of March will mark the third time that the Providence Tattoo & Music Fest goes down at Fete. With more than 20 bands playing throughout the day, you can hear all sorts of music, ranging from metal to hardcore. There will also be more than six different local RI tattoo shops hanging out for the day. And if this spring didn’t have enough exciting stuff happening, The Descendents — yes, The Descendents — announced that they will be playing Lupo’s in September. I suggest grabbing those tickets ASAP because they will sell out.
