Bonjour, mes amis! I have some news to get to, but first, LOCAL CONCERT ALERTS!!!
Thanks for Cami Hubbard for the update on these new concerts, all of which involve Sault Michigan's own Nixxon Dixxon! They have scheduled six more concerts at The Satisfied Frog in the next few months! So keep an eye out for Nixxon Dixxon when they play there on March 27-28, April 17-18, and May 15-16! All six shows will start at 10:00! But before these shows can take place, remember that Nixxon Dixxon will be at The Satisfied Frog for two shows next weekend, as well as throughout the year at The Rapids Lounge at Kewadin Casino! And of course, check out some of Nixxon Dixxon's great cover songs at their official MySpace page!
Now, to some more random updates! First off, a big thanks to all the bands and fans of the blog that have became friends of The Sault Metal Scene on MySpace! Among other new friends are Xplicit, a metal band from Winnipeg, who actually sound really good! (Check out some of their originals on their MySpace.) And according to their upcoming concert listings, they have a show pencilled in for Sault Ontario on April 21st!
Now, here's the problem with that: They don't have a venue. It just says "TBA" for a venue, so they are likely looking for a show or a booking. So if anyone is interested in booking Xplicit for an April 21st show in Sault Ste. Marie, send them a message on their Myspace or through their official website! And just to add, for you Canadian Idol fans, you may remember Xplicit frontman Dan LeGrand and guitarist Travis Thompson from auditioning on the show in 2007! Check out their audition video at this link! (They're after the first audition)
And now, some bad news for you hardcore fans...it appears the Callahan/Upheaval of an Exorcist concert scheduled for March 9th has been CANCELLED. I'm not sure why, the Facebook page for the event didn't say why, it was just deleted. It's a shame that is was cancelled, I know a lot of you guys were looking forward to going, but hopefully Callahan will be back sooner or later! And as for Upheaval of an Exorcist, they've still got three shows coming up around here, so you'll get plenty of chances to see them too!
That's all for tonight, expect lots more news this week, including local concert previews for this weekend (featuring Jager, Upheaval of an Exorcist, and more!) and hopefully, an announcement on which bands made the cut for the March 20th YMCA Battle of the Bands! Thanks for the continued support, everyone!
