PVDLoop Festival


The Providence Y2K International Live Looping Festival is coming to AS220’s Main Space and the Black Box! 2 nights, 2 days, 30 local, national and international musicians of so many genres, bringing a sound experience for all audiences and all ages! We’ve got a strong local presence and this is a great chance to experience looping in all its forms, and with all its surprises.

The Y2K Festival Network has been celebrating music for 16 years, in over 36 cities in 12 countries. Providence is the first East Coast Festival city. The local talent alone is reason to check it out, and we’re happy to have players from as far away as Europe and Asia, who come just for the love of the music. We’re also thrilled to have performers from Brown University’s MEME, RISD, AS220 Youth, and so much more.

Saturday Night – Oct. 1

9:00pm to 1:00am AS220 Main Stage

Lovecraft’s 125th Birthday concert


Come celebrate 125 years of weird, in the heart of Lovecraft’s Providence – OUTDOORS!

Lovecraft’s 125th Birthday concert features renowned local act Alec K. Redfearn & the Eyesores (who gave a legendary performance at 2013’s Eldritch Ball), musical monstrosities the Big Nazo Intergalactic Band, a Frank Difficult music/video/mashup with a live noise ensemble, and a special 10th-anniversary screening of HPLHS’s Call of Cthulhu film, as well as some secret short film screenings- all happening outdoors in the Facade Lot, 35 Weybosset St.

There will be a 21+ beer garden, featuring Narragansett Beers (including the very last of the Lovecraft Honey Ale, and plenty of the Olde Innsmouth Ale), and a very fitting “Festival” themed fire roast to feed your cultist belly.

The facade is directly adjacent to the Providence Arcade, home of the Lovecraft Arts & Sciences store! New Harvest Coffee & Spirits, our neighbor, will also be serving delicious coffees, cocktails, and treats.

The celebration is free to all, as part of NecronomiCon Providence !
