and then we’re closing the doors on retail
at the end of May 2017. after nearly 20 years in
Providence, we are closing the shop, but we are
not going out of business. What Cheer will
continue to sell online and also organize our
Rock + Roll Yard Sales and other events.

more on this later, but greedy and visionless
landlords like ours, Capstone Properties, in addition to
developers, including Brown University, have ruined Thayer
and made it impossible for a shop like What Cheer? to be
sustainable. almost every single independently owned
retail store has been squeezed out of Thayer, and
when there are so few shops, people no longer come to
the street to shop. and now even great local restaurants
are being forced out, only to see more chains move
in, causing rents to go up to absurd levels
that only chains can afford.

we have given it our all, only to see what was
once an incredibly awesome local shopping district
be turned into nothing. so long, Thayer . . .

What Cheer Records + Vintage in Providence
welcomes Mike Badger Founder of The La’s and

The La’s and Ever After) for a book reading and
Q&A on Liverpool as a Music city.

The Barley Hoppers
the ‘Mericans

What Cheer will be open Noon-5pm with

*

Liverpool in the 1980s. With prospects for the city’s
youth bleak, an ill-fated scheme for unemployed musicians
commenced, inadvertently shaping the future for members
of Space, Cast and The Lightning Seeds, thus giving fresh
impetus to the idea of song as a saviour for the city.

Spearheading this was The La’s, first they conquered
their home town, and then on the brink of hitting the big time
(and eventually inspiring what would become Britpop) Badger
quit to form Americana pioneers The Onset and find international
recognition as a sculptor, before eventually co-founding
Liverpool’s Viper record label (which has recently
released its 100th album).

As well as featuring a host of Mersey Musicians and
characters there are chance meetings with Captain Beefheart,
Jonathan Richman and Frank Sidebottom to name a few but
above all new insights are revealed into the
great lost Liverpool band The La’s.

From the emergence of Punk and New-Wave in the
1970s and on through to the acknowledgment of Liverpool
as Cultural Capital some thirty years on.

The Rhythm and the Tide is Mike Badger’s personal
story as a restlessly creative individual, and a reflection on the
ebb and flow of the music scene in the city that he loves.

*

on Friday 17th June, What Cheer
celebrates the physical release of the
new Radiohead album ‘A Moon Shaped Pool’
with an all-day event including a special
live stream curated and including performances

double LP opaque white vinyl pressing of the
new album (we’ll also have it on CD and regular
black vinyl) and there will also be promotional

Experimental Nature 1

Experimental Nature

 The urge to document our surroundings dates back to the cave paintings of primitive beings. As artists, each of us interprets the world in a different way, whether realistic, stylized, fantastic or even surreal. A natural surrounding can be transformed by each artist’s translation of what they see, and this collection will showcase unique perspectives. Curated by Jennifer Daltry, and featuring Jennifer Hrabota LesserLauren ScottoMaggie Siegel
and Dianne Wilkinson

The Narrows Center For The Arts
16 Anawan Street, Fall River MA 02721 

The show will run from June 3rd – July 15th 2016

Gallery Hours:
Wednesday – Saturday
Noon – 5:00 p.m.

Also open by appointment. Call 508.324.1926 to schedule a day and time.

There will be a reception on Saturday June 11th from 1-4 pm

on Saturday 16th May 2015 there will be a
special edition of the Providence Rock + Roll Yard Sale
on Thayer Street in Providence. it’s an East Side
version of Narragansett Beer‘s already popular
Neighbor Days Block Party which has happened for
several years now in the Fall on the West Side of
Providence (it’s our hope that going forward there
will be a Neighbor Days on the East Side every Spring
and another on the West Side in the Fall).

since moving our shop What Cheer Records to
Thayer Street, we’ve wanted to help make something
like this happen on Thayer / the East Side, and after
bringing the idea up to Narragansett Beer, they ran with it
and now it’s a reality, thanks to the folks at Flatbread Pizza
and the Thayer Street District Management Authority. we’ve
also teamed up with WBRU to provide live music for this,
the 1st Annual Thayer Street Neighbor Days Block Party.
besides bands, beer and food, many of Thayer’s
merchants (including What Cheer) will be joined by
some great Providence Rock + Roll Yard Sale vendors
selling Records + Vintage + DIY Handmade.
