Local Concert Previews For This Weekend!

Well everyone, we have five local concerts this weekend, so as usual, here's your local concert previews for this upcoming weekend!

First, we'll head on over to Sault Michigan, where locals Nixxon Dixxon will hit Dondee Lanes for a pair of weekend concerts tonight and tomorrow night! Both of them will take place at 8:00, and knowing how good they sound on Myspace, they should rock the bowling alley to it's core! Of course, if you want to check out some of their awesome cover songs, head on over to their official Myspace page!

Meanwhile, at The Satisfied Frog, Michigan hard rockers Graveyard Tan return to Sault Michigan for two concerts on the same days as the Nixxon Dixxon shows! Both of these concerts will also begin at 8:00, so really, it will all depend on your personal preference as to which bands to check out this weekend! But if you want a preview of the Graveyard Tan concert experience, check out this live video of them performing their song "Genious" from last year!

"Genious" Live @ the Emerald Theatre

And now we'll head back to Sault Ontario, for the first local metal concert on this side in two weeks! London Ontario's own Ministry of Zen are making their grand return to the Soo tomorrow night at Coch's Corner! This is their first show here in a while, and hopefully they'll rock as good as they did at their shows last year! I saw them at the Rock 2 Roll benefit concert myself, and they did a great job! But don't take my word for it, check out this live video of Ministry of Zen performing the song "Another Ride" from a show last year in Toronto!

Support at this show will come from locals Fingerbone, in just their second concert! I saw them when they played with Nebraska Arms and Dirty Virgin last month, and they put on a great set at that show, so they should do awesome tomorrow night! To check out some live video clips of Fingerbone, head over to this link! This concert will roughly start at around 10:30, and there is NO COVER CHARGE! I hope to be there, and I'll take pictures too if I do show up!

And just as a side, a few locals are hitting the road for shows this weekend as well! First off, Bad Side will be rocking out at Kewadin Casino in St. Ignace this weekend for a pair of shows, while Integrated System of Machines will take part in this year's Motor City Metalfest at Harpo's Concert Theater in Detroit! Best of luck to both bands!

That's all I have for today, more to come later on, hopefully!
