To celebrate the release of A Tribute To Providence, the ‘Mericans will host two shows at The Parlour, 1119 N Main Street in Providence, this weekend. The first night, Saturday 1/18, the ‘Mericans will play this record live in it’s entirety starting at 9pm. Then the following night, Sunday 1/19, will feature several of the bands covered on the record including The Brother Kite, The Figgs, Purple Ivy Shadows (reunion), and more. This night starts at 6pm. Tickets are just $10 for each show and can be purchased at the door or in advanced at BrownPaperTickets.com for Saturday and Sunday.
the ‘Mericans released a brand new record in November of 2o13 which entirely pays homage to the local Providence music scene. They’re offering this album for free and featuring tracks from some of our favorite artists such as The Rice Cakes, Deer Tick, and The Low Anthem. Appropriately titled, A Tribute To Providence, this unique compilation contains 20 songs from local bands that all called the Providence, RI music scene home between 1987 and 2013. Instead of just putting together a compilation, the ‘Mericans covered each song for the recording. You can download or stream the entire record for free from their Bandcamp site (themericans.bandcamp.com/album/a-tribute-to-providence).
