Groovy and bluesy folk-hop musician Citizen Cope will be hitting up yours truly's old stompin' grounds at Toad's Place on Tuesday. If like jam, blues, folk and hip-hop then the amazing originality that Citizen Cope possesses will have you hooked like a fish snagging a piece of bait. Everyone in the New Haven area should hit this show up at the most legendary venue in The Nutmeg State. Doors open at 8pm, show starts around 9 and tickets are $25 at the door, I highly suggest checking Citizen Cope out if you're in the area.

Ocean State punk rockers unite!!! One of the best punk bands out there today in Hot Water Music will be gracing the stage at The Met in Pawtucket on Wednesday. The dueling guitars and vocals of Chuck Ragan and Chris Wollard will electrify you and promise to be one hell of a show. Show starts at 8:30 and tickets are $20 advance and $22 at the door.
