Greetings everyone, I have a couple updates for you all!
As you likely know, this Friday is the Blessed By A Broken Heart show at The Oddfellows Hall! Well, guess who else will be there now? Northern Rocks Magazine! As you might have heard from the e-mail sent out by their Facebook group, representatives from the magazine will be on hand at this concert to collect new subscriptions, meet local music fans, and be handing out free buttons to the first 30 people! As well, a review of this concert will be featured in next month's edition of Northern Rocks Magazine!
Also, they're looking for ways to improve both Northern Rocks Magazine and their official website, and they wanna hear from YOU. If you have any suggestions, head on over to the official Northern Rocks forum and sign up for a free account! Thanks to Chris Rancourt for the info!
Of course, the concert on Friday will feature Blessed By A Broken Heart, local hardcore rockers As It Stands (replacing Abandon All Ships), Upheaval of an Exorcist, Breaking The Fourth Wall, and local indie band Deter! Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door, and the show starts at 6:30!
Just to let everyone know, after this concert and a possible The Issues show that same night that I can't verifiably confirm, there are NO other scheduled metal concerts in Sault Ontario that I'm aware of. But maybe there's one or two that I haven't heard about yet! If so, please tell me either on the SMS Facebook group, a comment on this post, or by e-mailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
I did some cleaning up the band listings, just to remove a few dead bands that have little to no evidence of originals, video, biography, or members. So, if you noticed that Fates Echo, Deface The King, and Hatred Of One were gone, you now know why!
And to end today, I've added a new concert listing section to the blog and the Facebook group! This one lists out of town shows by local bands! I think there's enough going for it's own section, so go check it out! The next show by a local band out of the area is on Thursday, when Lion Ride hit The Red Rooster in Burlington for a show with The Saigon Hookers!
