"New" Local Band Info/Random News

Nothing major for this post, but I figure I should get everyone up to speed a bit early on some things, so here's what I got!

First off, I added a new local band to the Local Band Links section! They are Dust N' Bones, a classic hard rock/metal band originally from Sault Michigan! As well, they double as a Guns N' Roses tribute band! Their frontman, C. Harrison, is actually the keyboardist for fellow locals Integrated System of Machines! They got a playlist full of originals and covers on their Reverbnation page, which you can check out at this location! They sound pretty good, but I don't believe they're currently active at the moment. But go check them out, their official website is located at!

Honestly, they were in the Posted Links before, but I removed them at one point because I saw that they were from Pickford on their Reverbnation page, and thought I'd messed my information up. But, I did some checking, and sure enough, they are Michigan Saultites, so they're back!

Now, my other main reason for this post is to let you guys know that there is a TON of concerts this weekend in the Sault area. I'm not going to do my normal concert preview yet, I'll save that for it's own big post closer to the weekend, but I figure I should give you all a heads up on these shows!

Friday is the hardcore show featuring Blessed By A Broken Heart, As It Stands, and 3 other bands at The Oddfellows Hall ($10 in advance, $15 at the door)! As well, Northern Rocks Magazine will be there, so stop by and see what they've got going on! SooToday have also posted an event page for this show, which you can check out at this location! Also that day, there might be a show featuring The Issues, but I can't 100% confirm it.

In Sault Michigan, Jager 4.0 will be playing a double weekend set Friday and Saturday at The Rapids Lounge at Kewadin Casino, while fellow locals Shift will be playing shows the same two nights at The Satisfied Frog! But the biggest show of all this weekend is Saturday night, when multiplatinum selling hard rock band Great White make their Sault Ste. Marie-area debut (EDIT: They played here in 1990, my bad) at The Dreammaker's Theater at Kewadin Casino! Support will come from fellow 80s metal stars Britny Fox, and tickets are only $33.50!

That's about all for today, keep your browsers pointed here for all your local metal needs!
