How do I find out what is going on around Providence?

Providence has a surprising amount to do, if you want to look. I am amazed when I meet people who say that there isn’t. So here are some good places to start:

VisitRhodeIsland.com :: For more events than you can shake a stick at, try this out. This link is only the Arts Calendar, besides.

Providence Daily Dose :: Great event blog that covers in surprising detail; what goes on where and what to expect. Also covers local news. A good place to start.

AS220 :: Live music and art venue with a great bar and taco diner   the Tacqueria. Also, a place for artists to live and show their work. Live music every night, art openings every other week. Silkscreen and letterpress print shop for rent, as well as a community photo darkroom.

LotsOfNoise :: Music blog for the underground scene. Listings by night for venues and bands that don’t make the local papers.

Providence’s Events Page :: When all else fails, this is another great place to check for an extensive list of cultural events from the PPAC to the VMA to local galleries and stores.

Pawtucket’s Events Page :: Try this relatively new events calendar for all things Pawtucket. Gallery openings, shows at MWM and Arts Festival listings.
