Greetings one and all! I got a handful of updates and news for everyone, so let's get started with some LOCAL CONCERT ALERTS!!!!
Michigan based hard rockers Nudge are returning to Sault Michigan! They have a packed tour schedule this year, but they've fit in four shows at The Satisfied Frog in 2009! So, keep an eye out for Nudge when they return on April 24-25 and June 12-13! Both shows are scheduled to begin at 10:00 PM! For more info and dates for Nudge, head on over to their official Myspace page!
Next, we have an update on an upcoming local concert! Now, I've reported a lot about this Friday's Upheaval of an Exorcist concert for Jeremy Hannah of Big Voiced Records' 19th birthday already, but there's still another lineup change to announce! It appears Sudbury-based hardcore band Guttershark are OFF the show now. But never fear, metal fans, for a replacement was found! Filling in for this show is The Memphis West, a progressive death metal band from Newmarket! The rest of the lineup is intact, and the show will go on! I'll add more and better details closer to Friday!
And now, an update from Sault Ontario hard rockers Stillbroke! Frontman Jesse Frigault sent me an e-mail yesterday with some updates! Apparently, they have signed a record deal, and will apparently be recording a new album and music for some programs and games in the future! If this holds up, it should be damn exciting! Hopefully everything goes well, and we'll see them playing in the Sault again real soon!
Also, I have added a new link to the Other Local Metal Links section! It is the official website for Sault Michigan based music store Grooves Music! Not only do they sell tons of musical instruments, they also hold music lessons taught by members of local bands like Shift, among others! Located at 504 Ashmun Street, you can check out Grooves Music at http://www.groovesmusicinc.com/ or at their official MySpace page!
Speaking of Shift...I forgot to mention that they played a pair of shows out in Christmas Michigan at Foggy's Bar this weekend! Hopefully they went well, my apologies for not mentioning them before now! Also, if anyone went to see Nixxon Dixxon or Bad Side this weekend, feel free to share how the shows were here, on Facebook, or at firstname.lastname@example.org!
That's all for now, I'll have more news tomorrow if I can pry myself away from the Daytona 500! Have a good one guys, hope you all had a good Valentines Day!
