Prospect Hill-Bloodline Theory-Inverter-Psycle-A Mean Minute

Live Show Review

Fete Music Hall, Providence, RI

(Warning: All photos were taken on my cell phone this night, as I was attending as a fan, but decided these bands deserved a write-up anyway! My apologies to A Mean Minute for not taking any photos during their set.  Make sure to check all these bands out online.)

 

Support your local scene! I can’t express this enough! My coverage of music takes me many places, but my heart is always with my local bands. This is where the nationals got their start and wouldn’t have made it further without fan support.  Saturday, March 10th I headed out to Providence, RI to see such a show made up of two Providence bands, and three Massachusetts bands. I had previously seen all the bands before, so I knew this was going to be a fantastic show.

Hometown boys, A Mean Minute opened the night. I was least familiar with them, but as soon as they started I remembered why I liked them...uniqueness! A Mean Minute is grunge, meets rock, meets hip hop. The audience felt the energy and the vibe was set for the rest of the night.

If you haven’t heard of the rock band Psycle, then you obviously don’t follow my Facebook posts. From the first night of meeting this great bunch of guys, I not only became a huge fan, but I became family. They have been working hard in the studio on a new album to be released soon, so they haven’t been gracing too many venues in the area for several months.  Along with the crowd favorites of “Face The Fire” and “Break” to name a couple, we were honored to hear some of the new material that is yet to be released.  New songs included “Kill the Machine,” “Dying to Live,” and “King Without A Throne” and video snippets can be seen from these songs on the band's Facebook page. I hadn’t heard these songs previously, and they blew me away (and I didn’t expect any less), so I am very excited for the new album! If you like good, energetic, melodic rock n’ roll then Psycle is a must listen and see. Keep your eye on these guys! They have a big show announcement coming soon.

 

 

Inverter is another band with a mixed genre of metal, hardcore, and hip hop with a lively stage performance. I had seen them perform many times over the years, but it wasn’t until January that I had a chance to chat with the band and get to know them better. (The full interview can be read HERE.) Frontman, Deek, is easily recognizable with the colorful glasses he sports on stage, usually accompanied by a cool suit-type jacket. Inverter is as much fun to watch as it is to make out the lyrics.

 

 

Bloodline Theory, very well know at the Fete, rocked our world next. I’ve know the various members from past projects, but really like what they have going together.  Bloodline Theory mix styles of metal, rock, hardocore, and reggae, so there is something for everyone!  A little known fact about frontman, Mike Wein, is that this is his very first band and you would never guess this by watching him leave every bit of sweat and energy onstage, as does the rest of the band. These guys always incorporate a cover or two in their set, adding their own twist. I always love when they do “Gangsta’s Paradise” by Coolio, as they did this night along with some Guns and Roses. I, personally have a soft spot for their reggae tunes. You’d think they would seem out of place mid-set, but they somehow don’t, as the band smoothly adjust their playing styles. Check out their song “Smoke With Me” on Reverbnation to get a taste of the reggae. Their other music is there as well.

 

 

Prospect Hill, hailing from Boston, MA, haven performed coast to coast and are considered more of a regional band in our area. I don’t get to see them often, sadly, so this was the icing on the cupcake of this show. The night before I happened to catch vocalist, Adam Fithian with guitarist Josh Waterman from Fithian’s other band, State of Emergency, as they opened for Saving Abel and Tantric at The Boathouse in Dracut, MA.  With his blonde dreads, Adam is just one of those frontmen that I find myself mesmerized and smiling as he takes command of the stage and audience no matter what band he is in.  So Prospect Hill did what they came to do and rocked our asses off.  To end the set, everyone who had played was invited onstage to do a song together. A perfect ending to an amazing night of local artistry!
