Hey guys, I apologize in advance if this post is somewhat lacking, but I got a bad cold when I was out of town, and it's sapping a lot of my energy. That's also partly to blame on our Saultites In Out Of Town Bands Profile not going up on Boxing Day as scheduled, but I will try (I stress, try) to have it up tonight. That all said, the show must go on, so we have previews of this weekend's metal/hard rock shows (we'll cover the New Year's Eve shows on the weekend) and a couple of new videos, so here's what you need to know!
In an oddly light metal concert weekend(especially given that it's still the holiday season), we do have a couple of shows going down TONIGHT, including yet another new concert from local hard rock quartet The Suicide Kings! In what's likely to be their last show of 2012, the guys will return to The Canadian Nightclub just two days after they rocked the Pim Street bar with Stiffler's Mom, only this time, the stage is theirs alone to rock their fans with their already wide assortment of covers and originals! There's not a whole lot else different to say about it compared to their Wednesday show, but The Suicide Kings should still be in gear to deliver the rock to all in attendance, so don't miss out! Admission should be around $5 for this 19+ concert, and a 10:00 PM start time is listed on the Facebook event page. Check the above links for more details, and though I don't believe my cold will be improved enough to go see The Suicide Kings tonight, I encourage you guys to head out! For a preview, here's The Suicide Kings playing their song "Into The Fray" at The Canadian last month!
The other heavier concert on this last weekend of 2012 (that I know of, at least) involves the return of Caveman Morrison frontman Tym Morrison's solo acoustic show TONIGHT! Two weeks after his latest show at this venue, he'll return to The Roadhouse Bar & Grill on Trunk Road for his last announced concert of 2012, and like his other recent gigs, Tym's unplugged acoustic covers should attract a nicely varied crowd of revelers and fans, so if you're up for a mellower Saturday evening of metal, a trip to the East End for Tym's next solo show would probably work out! Admission is likely free, a 19+ age limit seems likely as well, and a 10:00 PM start time is advertised. For more details, visit the official Facebook event page! This should also be a solid show for the weekend's concert schedule, and while I'm sure tonight's Inner City Surfers gig at The Rockstar Bar will steal many of the headlines, keep Tym's show in mind as well if that's what you prefer! For a preview, here's Tym covering Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters" at Bossy's earlier this year!
We'll close this post with new videos, starting with the newest solo performance clip from ex-Sneaky Pete/Foothill Road guitarist Mario Carlucci! Posted onto his YouTube channel last week, this actually is a cover of Neil Young's "My My Hey Hey (Out Of The Blue)", and while it's not as heavy as his most prominent local band work, he sounds good here! Vocally, he sounds somewhat limited, but his voice is noticeably stronger than Neil Young's. The lighting is odd, with only a blob in the upper left lit to show Mario vaguely, so this is more notable for the audio, which is well performed if reserved from Mario's normal output, but check out his newest video below!
Finally, local hardcore quintet Destroilet uploaded their new song "Eternal Fire" to their YouTube channel yesterday for fans to stream! One of two new videos posted there (including this 3 second plug for the iTunes release), this marks the first time in 2 years that the band has uploaded new videos there. Unless you haven't heard "Eternal Fire" yet, there's nothing majorly new to document here, but for some hard hitting old school hardcore punk, check out their newest videos above and below!
That's all for now, but stay tuned for a new news post this weekend, along with our Dyadics profile very shortly, I hope! Thanks everyone!
