Benefit show in R.I. this SUNDAY

We're playing on this cool bill down in R.I., it's a benefit for MoveOn PAC. We're the opening band, and the sets are 1/2 hr long, so it will be interesting to see how it works out logisitcally. SO many cool acts on the bill with us, including Ida, one of my all-time favorite bands, ever! Here's the poop:
