West Side Thursdays: The Horse Eyed Men

  • Dexter Training Ground Parade Street & Hudson Street Providence, RI 02909 (map)

Get your americana on with the disgruntled country-rock-punk sounds of The Horse-Eyed Men – literally a band of two brothers hailing from these local parts – during our West Side Thursdays summer concert series in partnership with the City of Providence. This event also welcomes Providence Children's Museum, bringing loads of fun kids’ activities to Dexter Park.

Set against the backdrop of the Armory Farmers Market, West Side Thursdays – now in its 16th year – is WBNA's free and family-friendly destination event that takes place over several Thursdays in summer, and features live music, activities for kids, Beer Garden by Troop, rentable bocce ball and chess sets, food trucks/vendors, and more!

West Side Thursdays bring neighbors together while showcasing local artists and musicians, and are a great way to let off a little summer steam. For a full schedule of performances and events, go here.

about The Artists

The Horse-Eyed Men are two brothers – Noah and Dylan Harley – who play original, disgruntled Americana and country. Raised by musical humans in a former candy store outside of Providence R.I., their music mixes spaghetti-western themes with cabaret, ragtime, and post-partum punk. Their most recent album, "The Uncanny Valley" was recorded in Berlin, Germany, and was released in August of 2018. "The Uncanny Valley" is sonically exploratory, diving deeper into the realms of space rock, drip hop and worm-hole jazz.


West Side Thursdays is made possible by a grant from the City of Providence and with support from our sponsors, and is part of Mayor Jorge Elorza's 2019 Celebrate Providence! Neighborhood Performing Arts Initiative.
