Sorry about the lack of updates and posts this weekend, there hasn't been too much to speak of locally. But I do have some updates for some upcoming local concerts, so here's what you need to know!
I haven't really covered this show much here since I started the blog, but on January 9th, there will be a hardcore show headlined by Montreal-based glam/metalcore band Blessed By A Broken Heart! I mention this show in a concert updates post because there's been a lineup change! One of the main support bands, Toronto based hardcore band Abandon All Ships, have dropped off the bill for the Sault show (I'm not sure why), but a more than suitable replacement has been found: Local hardcore rockers As It Stands!
This concert will also feature support from Sudbury-based death metal band Upheaval of an Exorcist, Montreal hardcore band Breaking The Fourth Wall, and local indie/emo band Deter! The show, likely the first of the new year for Sault Ontario, will take place on January 9th at The Oddfellows Hall! Tickets are $10 in advance, and $15 at the door! If you're interested in advance tickets, contact Jeremy at 946-3445 or Sean at 206-3515!
And now, an update for a show across the river! As I'd previously reported, on the weekend of January 30-31st, Sault Michigan's own Jager 4.0 will be playing a pair of weekend dates at Dondee Lanes (yes, the bowling alley). Well I just learned of another band to be featured at these shows! Pickford based hard rockers Absolute will also be featured on these two concerts! Absolute are a pretty good band, with some covers ranging from Godsmack and Seether to Neil Young and Ugly Kid Joe! They're very similar to many other bands, but good enough to stand on their own! Check out 4 of their live cover songs at their official Myspace page!
And finally, if I find any photos, videos, or reviews of any type from this weekend's Detroit, Lion Ride, and Nixxon Dixxon concerts, I will let you guys know right here! And if you found or have anything to share, lemme know with a comment or by e-mail at rob_F_owns@hotmail.com!
