about Karma Rocket

Karma Rocket creates gritty post-punk sung with soul. Songs are about connections and isolation, cities and the coming apocalypse, destruction and hope. Proud to be part of RI’s 75orLess Records, Karma Rocket is Jim Almo, Jon Ford, Sean Geoghegan, Dan Moos, and Erin Wright.

Karma Rocket member Daniel Moos has worked on several projects in the neighborhood including assisting the WBNA in the brownfield cleanup of the property located at 1326 Westminster. Dan understands and appreciates the vibrancy and diversity of our neighborhood by working on projects to help with the WBNA’s mission to promote the West Side as a safe and sustainable place to be SWELL (Shop, Work, Eat, Live and Learn Locally).

West Side Thursdays is made possible by a grant from the City of Providence and is part of Mayor Jorge Elorza's 2017 Celebrate Providence! Neighborhood Performing Arts Initiative.
