On Saturday August 4th, upon the East Providence Waterfront with views of upper Narragansett bay, RI Waterfront Events yet again made this summer extra special with the talents of Ben Folds and The Violent Femmes.
The Femmes opened the show for an enthusiastic crowd performing their unique style of acoustic edgy material. The lineup of Gordon Gano, Brian Ritchie and John Sparrow performed for well over an hour with fan favorites like “Blister in The Sun” and much more.
Ben Folds followed with an awesome set of material including his recent release of “Moscow Mitch”. Folds’ outstanding band played and sang with layers of vocal perfection. Often referring to RI’s thriving original music scene of the 80’s toasting a drink to the legendary club Lupos, it was obvious that Folds appreciated his surroundings.
Waterfront Events at Bold Point Park continues to deliver the best of RI outdoor entertainment with the likes of forthcoming John Fogerty of the legendary Creedence Clear Water Revival and Beach Boys concerts to name a few. Follow RIBlogger.com to stay in tune with all things uniquely Rhode Island.
