LOCAL CONCERT ALERTS!!! (and one preview)

Hey guys, I have two LOCAL CONCERT ALERTS for everyone! I'm kinda late getting to both these concerts, but better late than never!

First off, on Boxing Day (a.k.a. December 26th), Lion Ride make their return to the Sault area for a show at Coch's Corner! Tickets will be just $5, and everything starts at 10:00 with an opening set by Nebraska Arms! I'm hopeful that I can hit this show, it depends what kind of Christmas family stuff I might be stuck with! But if I'm free, I'll be there!

Then, the very next day, there's a punk show at The Oddfellows Hall! Why do I mention a punk show on a metal page? Cause there's a metal band on the bill! Toronto based thrash/punk band Detroit will be directly supporting local punk cover legends Bin Hawdon and The Taliband! This concert will also feature fellow local bands Nebraska Arms, Talk Shit, and Free Beer! Tickets for this concert are also $5, and the doors open at 6:00! I'm getting bugged by a number of friends to go to this concert as well, so don't be suprised if I pop up!

So there's your concert updates! Adding to the two Nixxon Dixxon shows at Kewadin Casino next weekend, there's a grand total of 4 local concerts on Christmas weekend! And fingers crossed, I hope to bring the digital camera I hope to get for Christmas with me to the next local show I can hit!

Oh, and one more thing, Sault Michigan locals Free Refill take the stage at a Sault Area High School talent show at some point today! I don't know much else about it, but that's what you get for not being a student there. I'll assume it's mostly open to students only, so I doubt most readers can attend, but still, it's worth mentioning! If you wanna check out Free Refill for yourself, here's a live video of them covering the Wolfmother song "Joker & The Thief"!

That's all for tonight, updates will be limited this weekend cause I'll be out of town, for family Christmas stuff in Detroit, but I will be around just in case anything big happens! And check out my Sick Jams For Sick Kids review immediately below this sentence!
