Thursdays feature act at the Songwriter Salon at The Salon began their journey one sparkling Providence night, when four young women were watching their friends Last Good Tooth play The 201. Half jokingly, one of them said they should get together and play sometime. They all played instruments so it made perfect sense. After a few practices that consisted mainly of drinking wine and writing unnecessary back story, they finished â€œGiacomoâ€. Now, they are rarely seen apart. Now they are The Sugar Honey Iced Tea.
