T H E   L O W   C A R D S  |  2 PM

Rock & roll, swamp rock, roots rock… The Low Cards have been described as many things, one thing’s for sure, they rock. Dissonant guitar mayhem, bombastic pigskin pounding, and slap happy upright bass debauchery… The Low Cards are guaranteed to satisfy.

vulgarrity play the 2019 what cheer providence rock + roll yard sale at the rock garden party

V U L G A R R I T Y  |  12:30 PM

Perhaps it’s no coincidence that death and the macabre are the subject matter of the majority of VulGarrity’s music. True, the brother-sister team’s unhealthy obsession with horror movies is a large part of the equation; however, it’s also symbolic of the journey that brought VulGarrity into existence in 2008. After much soul-searching and musical experimentation, they came upon a solution that takes the do-it-yourself mentality to the extreme: they lay to rest the traditional idea of a rock band and decided to play every instrument themselves…at the same time.

The band uses technology to enhance live performance in a truly extraordinary way. The use of loop pedals allows the dynamic duo to play drums, guitar, bass and keys all at once while executing tight vocal harmonies. That’s not all. They switch instruments too, usually several times during a show, often within the same song, without missing a beat.

Vugarrity came in first place in 90.7 WXIN Providence’s 2010 Rock Hunt. and when they won 95.5 WBRU’s 2011 Rock Hunt, being the first band to win both of Rhode Island’s Rock Hunt contests.

Stage or screen, it’s no secret VulGarrity were born to perform. They’ve shared the stage with Mike Doughty, Days of the New, The Misfits, King’s X, Sponge, The Joy Formidable, Sleeper Agent, Psychostick, The Prodigals, Ra and Electric Six, and don’t show signs of slowing down any time soon. If you haven’t seen them live yet, what are you waiting for? Get your ass to a VulGarrity show! It’s truly a one-of-a-kind experience where the reaction from first-timers is almost always “I’ve never seen anything like that before!”
