Confession. I don't always look at the Phoenix but last week I picked one up and discovered that good ol' Rizzz was playing a free show at the Century, Thursday night (April 26). Confession again. I like a lot of things about the Grateful Dead, a band that got by on great chops and good vibes and that other thing__they wanted to be our pals. Rizzz is like that, a musical collective whose membership is variable but whose musicianship is sweet. And rather than focus on the downside of such hoary icons of bygone days playing a lame duck club in its fading days (read-is there no end to the end of live music in the city of Providence?), I will focus on this: the Sox are 12 and 6, Graham Parker lit up the Narrows last Friday night and like free shows in Roger Williams Park on a sunny, summer afternoon, Rizzz will no doubt deliver just what we need come Thursday. I hope to see you there!
