Photo Feature: August 22nd 2014 Lovecraft Readathon and The Spot Underground

My brother and I found ourselves at a library, of all places, on this Friday in August.  The Providence Public Library was having a reading of a few examples of H. P. Lovecraft‘s work, in between each of the readings they had  short set from some of my favorite local singer songwriters, Will Houlihan of Haunt the House, Ian Fitzgerald, and Keith McCurdy of Vudu Sister.  On the walk back from the library I stopped in at The Spot Underground to catch some of The Cosmic Factory and The Fritz.
