The Art of Rebellion music lineup is complete!

RIPR has summoned Lolita Black from the Depths of Olneyville! This heavy hitting band will be opening for the mighty Neutral Nation on Friday, May 18.

Formed in 2005 by Bob Otis and drummer Kaleigh Melise, Lolita Black stormed the music gates of the local music scene with their “kick you in the teeth” assault to the senses. In 2010, vocalist Scarlett Delgado and bassist of Weak Teeth, Mike Pagano, joined the band, creating the fierce quartet that we know, love, and rock out to.

This dynamic, frantic, sludgy-rock band has been a part of the Providence music scene for 12 years. Lolita Black resonates with fans of 80s dark-rock bands such as Black Sabbath, The Wipers, Siouxsie and the Banshees, and Killing Joke.

Be part of the vision and unleash your inner rebellion as Lolita Black and Neutral Nation shred Providence on Friday, May 18, Night One of 20 Years of Sound + Vision: The Art of Rebellion at The Steel Yard!

Be part of the vision with RIPR and Lolita Black, it’s never too late to start a rebellion!
