Friday night is Acoustic Open Mic Night at The Coffee Depot on Main Street in Warren, starting at 7pm. Whether you’re a bathtub singer looking to croon in front of a live audience or a more seasoned musician or poet testing new material, The Coffee Depot Open Mic Night has great attendance and reputation. Tonight’s featured artists are Bill Monroe and Matteo Casini. This event is free, but they’d love for you to bring a non-perishable food donation to benefit the Bristol Good Neighbors food pantry!
If opera is more your style, then head over to Blithewold on Hope Street in Bristol for their Winter Concert Series with Opera Providence. The first of three concerts, “Fate & Fortune” is Friday, January 28th at 7pm. The music-filled evening will also include wine, cheese, and sweets. Space is limited, so call 253-2707 for tickets.
‘Becky Shaw’, the latest comedy playing at 2nd Story Theatre on Market Street in Warren, is a “sharp-witted” play about a “catastrophically bad blind date”. Last weekend’s shows sold out, but as of this writing there are still tickets available for shows this weekend: Friday, January 28th at 8pm; Saturday, January 29th at 8pm; and Sunday, January 30th at 3pm and 7pm. Call 247-4200 to reserve your tickets!
Also on Saturday, it looks like the Pendragon concert at Stone Church Coffeehouse on High Street in Bristol has been postponed due to illness. Not to worry, because the Church Street Coffeehouse in Warren is presenting a special concert, with musical guests Rick Fetters and Camille Delisle. Mr. Fetters is described as having “a silky voice”, and Ms. Delisle’s vocal sound has been compared to Emmylou Harris and Joan Baez. The show starts at 8pm and tickets are available at the door.
So, just try to look past all the snow and go soak up some fun this weekend!
