Let's start in Sault Michigan, where tonight and tomorrow night, two bands are taking the stage for a pair of shows each! First off, we'll head to The Rapids Lounge at Kewadin Casino, where local classic hard rockers Bad Side (featuring DJ Lissa from 99.5 Yes FM on lead vocals) take the stage tonight and tomorrow night! Both shows will start at 9:00 PM, and if the songs on their MySpace are any indication, the shows should go fantastic! But don't take my word for it, check out this video for Bad Side's song "Living In Fear"!
Next up, we'll head to The Satisfied Frog, where another Sault Michigan hard rock band, Shift, will take the stage for a pair of shows this weekend! Same days as Bad Side, but Shift's shows will start an hour later, at 10:00 PM! I don't have any audio or video to share with you guys, but Shift definitely are a talented band, so I bet you they're worth checking out this weekend as well!
And finally, the big show of this weekend! Ladies and gentlemen, tomorrow night at The Oddfellows Hall, CATTLE DECAPITATION invade Sault Ste. Marie! These San Diego-based death metal rockers are pretty well known, with a number of albums on Metal Blade Records, and a devoted following with their crushing death/grind sound and their vegetarian and anti-animal cruelty message! Check out their music video for their new single "Regret And The Grave!"
Support for this show will come from Cincinnati death metal band Rose Funeral, Rochester avant-garde metal band Pysopus, as well as a couple of Northern Ontario metal bands! Sudbury death metal rockers Beyond Within will make their long awaited return to Sault Ste. Marie, and North Bay experiemental metal band The Killing Field round out the lineup of this show! Click on each band's name to head to their respective MySpace pages, where you can check out some of their original tracks!
Tickets are $15 in advance from CD Plus, Northland Music, and The Music Depot, but the price jumps to $20 at the door! Everything starts at 6:00 PM on Sunday night at The Oddfellows Hall, and yes, it's ALL AGES! I'm going, I'll have a review posted after the show, and I hope you guys can make it too! And to get full details and confirm your attendance, head on over to the official Facebook event page!
