LOCAL CONCERT ALERTS (Lucky 13) & More Weekend Concert Previews!!

Keeping the concert previews rolling on this busy weekend, we're looking at four shows taking place tomorrow, though one of the bands below is playing on Saturday as well for the whole weekend. Tomorrow's post will look at Saturday-only gigs, so watch out then for what's missed today! Now, let's begin our second of three preview posts, including a SHORT NOTICE LOCAL CONCERT ALERT!!

Local alternative/hard rock cover quartet Lucky 13 will make their first ever appearances at The Roosevelt Hotel TOMORROW & SATURDAY NIGHT! Apologies for the short notice, the band only just announced the Friday show on Tuesday, with Saturday's only getting announced on The Rosie's Facebook page last night. After a two weekend stretch at The Rockstar Bar, it'll be interesting to see how Lucky 13 do in their first ever Rosie stops (though half the band played there with the debuting Throwbacks in December), so if you've missed them in recent weeks, give them a look at The Roosevelt Hotel tomorrow or Saturday! Admission tomorrow is likely free, you must be 19 to attend, and there is a 10:30 PM start time in effect. For more details, visit the official Facebook event page! It's nice to see bookings ramp up for Ed & company, so keep TOMORROW & SATURDAY'S shows in mind, and for a preview, here's the guys at Toystock in late 2012!

Moving to previously announced shows, the second of three hard-rock featured nights at The Marquee at the Bon Soo Winter Carnival goes down TOMORROW, as local metal/punk quintet Jack Spades are headlining the day's entertainment at The Roberta Bondar Pavilion! Fresh off of last night's set at Heavy Thursday at The Rosie, look for this entertaining band (featuring current members of T-Rex Manning, The Elements, and Bear Hunters) to rock out hard in front of their fans and the Bon Soo faithful tomorrow evening! They're the last slotted band at 7:30 PM, and while tomorrow's entertainment begins at The Pavilion 5:00 PM, I can not confirm the other acts' times (partly due to the lack of a full public Marquee schedule), but click here for the identity of some Wednesday-Saturday performers. Like before, admission is FREE if you have a $7 Bon Soo button (or buy one upon entry), and this is definitely ALL AGES. Check the above links for more details, don't miss Jack Spades in this unique outdoor setting, and here they are live in December!

Also TOMORROW NIGHT, Kinross, Michigan hard rock trio Banned will return to The Runway Bar in nearby Hessel, but according to their Facebook page, their previously announced one nighter is now extended to Saturday night as well! The only hard rock band playing across the river this weekend that I can reasonably verify, these will be Banned's second & third shows of the new year (following last weekend's stop in Gould City), but these will be their first within an hour of the Soo of 2014. After taking January off, and with only an April weekend at Kewadin Casino otherwise known, why not head out this weekend just in case those are next? Also note that their sets coincide with this year's Snowsfest at the nearby Les Cheneaux Islands, so keep that angle in mind tomorrow! Alex, Don, and Jim will be rocking Hessel tomorrow at 9:00 PM & Saturday at 8:00 PM, you must be 21 to attend, and there's no announced cover charge. Check the above links for more details! It's great to see Banned back at it, so don't miss them this weekend, and here's the guys live last year!

Finally for our second preview post this week, Sault Ontario classic hard rock quintet That's Chester will make their first live appearances of 2014 TOMORROW & SATURDAY NIGHT when they return to Docks Riverfront Grill! Last seen live at Toystock over 2 months ago (and at Docks that same weekend), it's nice to see this talented veteran band playing more regularly following their reunion last year, and hopefully they have a great weekend of entertaining covers for their fans tomorrow & Saturday night! Like usual, these are 19+ shows with 10:00 PM-ish start times, and as with other recent Docks shows, there is NO COVER CHARGE! For more information, visit the official Facebook event page! Sounds like a good time to party out with That's Chester, so keep their Docks return in mind for this weekend, and for a preview, here are the guys at Docks a few years back!

That's all for today, but stay tuned for the rest of our weekend concert previews tomorrow! Thanks everyone!
