LOCAL CONCERT ALERTS!!!! (Blind Witness and Nixxon Dixxon), And A Cancellation!

You can probably tell what this post is about by the title, so yeah, here's some LOCAL CONCERT ALERTS!!!!

(EDIT: I had initially reported that local hard rockers Stillbroke would be supporting Marianas Trench at a concert on Monday night at The Canadian. However, this show has been cancelled due to an illness with a member of Marianas Trench. The show will be rescheduled at a later date. Thanks to Laurie Frigault for the information!)

Ok, now onto some shows that are definitely still on as scheduled! So, hardcore fans, get ready! This is kind of an update to an already posted show, as this one is the same day as one I already mentioned, so I'll assume it was reworked. I had told you guys about a planned show on May 19th at The Arcadia Coffeehouse featuring Uxbirdge hardcore band To Cherish and Belleville hardcore band Amnesia Amnesia. Well, things have changed! Amnesia Amnesia aren't on it anymore, it's now at The Oddfellows Hall, and some more bands have been added to the lineup!

Now headlining are Montreal hardcore rockers Blind Witness, making their return to Sault Ontario after canceling on the Carnifex concert due to a car accident! Nice to see them back around these parts! Joining them and To Cherish are Calgary hardcore band The Fallacy, local hardcore band As It Stands, and local punk band The Fury! Tickets will be $9 in advance, $12 at the door, and doors open at 6:30 on May 19th for the show! There, it's good to have some clarification on this concert, I was starting to question if it was even going on from what I knew before! So click on the bands' names to check them out, and to get full details on this show or confirm your attendance, head on over to the official Facebook event page for more information!

Also, I have a couple shows in Sault Michigan to tell y'all about! Local classic hard rockers Nixxon Dixxon have scheduled two more local concerts this month! On April 24th, they will be among the entertainment at this year's Laker Luau at The Cisler Center at Lake Superior State University! The next night, they will rock out at The Malamute Saloon in Kincheloe (which is about a half hour away from Sault Michigan) at 9:00 PM! Knowing how they sound, these shows should be as good as ever (check them out on Myspace for proof!) But before all of this can take place, you can check out Nixxon Dixxon next weekend at The Satisfied Frog!

And finally, an event page for the upcoming SNFU concert featuring local metal band Operation: Killdozer has been posted on SooToday, and you can check it out at this location! Remember, it takes place on May 5, and tickets are $20! That's all for tonight, more to come this weekend, including local concert previews!!!
