This Weekend's Concert Previews, plus Shift/Woods Of Ypres On The Road!

Hello all! I have nothing "new" locally to report today, but there are some shows coming up, so here's your local concert previews for this weekend!

On Friday and Saturday, Sault Michigan's own Nixxon Dixxon take the stage at The Satisfied Frog for a pair of weekend dates! Both shows will take place at 10:00! These are Nixxon Dixxon's first shows of 2009, and if the songs on their Myspace page are any indication, they should put on one hell of a show! But don't take my word for it! If you want a preview of their live show, check out this clip of Nixxon Dixxon performing the Warrant classic "Cherry Pie" from last year's Sugar Island Fest!

(EDIT: Video removed at Nixxon Dixxon's request, though they promised newer better vids in the future, so stay tuned!)

Now, that's all for shows locally, but a couple of local bands are hitting the road for shows this weekend, so I might as well tell you about them too!

First off, Sault Michgan-based hard rockers Shift will be heading to Christmas, Michigan for a pair of shows at Foggy's Bar on Friday and Saturday! Meanwhile, back in Canada, Woods of Ypres head on down to Toronto for the Adrian Bromley Tribute Show at The Opera House! Most of you probably can't make it to this show, but if you're interested in donating to The Canadian Cancer Society in support, go to!

And a final note, congratulations to Metallica, on being included in the 2009 class for The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! That's all for today, more news hopefully coming very soon!
