It's now time for this weekend's hard rock concert previews in the Sault area, including two SHORT NOTICE LOCAL CONCERT ALERTS, but to give it proper emphasis and spread out the previews, we'll be looking at Saturday night's Rad Zone birthday party (as headlined by The Ripcordz with local openers) at The Rockstar Bar in tomorrow's post, so look for it then! Now, let's kick off this weekend's previews!
Sault Ontario party/hard rock cover trio Stiffler's Mom will return to The Rockstar Bar for a solo concert TOMORROW NIGHT! Apologies for the short notice, the show was first announced on the venue's Facebook group on Tuesday, but we held it for our previews to avoid a redundant re-post. This will be Greg, Mike, and Jon's second Rockstar Bar appearance in three weeks (following last month's Kieran Strange show), but will be their first headlining set there of the fall, so if you're up for a night of entertaining and wide ranging covers, keep tomorrow's show in mind! Remember, this is a one-night-only gig due to Saturday's Ripcordz/Rad Zone birthday concert that we're previewing on the site tomorrow. This will be a 19+ event, there will be a 10:00 PM start time, and while some recent gigs have had no cover charge, bring at least $5 just in case. For more details, check the above links, and here's Stiffler's Mom covering Ozzy Osbourne at the first annual Toystock!
Also in recent new concert announcements, new Rudyard hard rock cover quintet Exiled will return to The Savoy Bar & Nightclub in Sault Michigan TOMORROW NIGHT! Again, apologies for the short notice, we first heard about this show on Monday, but held it for our previews. Like at last month's Redburn show, Exiled will again share the stage with another band, this time being Ricochet, the frequently-seen Rudyard cover quintet featuring former Banned guitarist Alex Schrovenwever. Ricochet are known to cover the occasional metal song, and they have an extensive slate of upcoming concerts, so don't bypass them if you're at The Savoy tomorrow! Exiled themselves should deliver a hard-edged set of modern and classic rock covers too, so fans of members' older bands should have nothing to worry about! A 10:00 PM start time is in effect for this one-night-only gig, you must be 21 to attend, and there's no announced cover charge. For more details, click here & here for each band's Facebook event page, and we'll let you know when Exiled videos turn up!
Moving to previously announced concerts, Charlevoix classic metal trio Peril will return to The Rapids Lounge at the Sault Michigan Kewadin Casino for concerts TOMORROW & SATURDAY NIGHT! Coming just a week after Jeff Hudson's other metal band Scarkazm made their Sault debuts, these will be Peril's first Upper Peninsula gigs of the fall, and their first at The Rapids Lounge in six months, so if you don't frequent the St. Ignace Kewadin, this could be considered a long time coming for Peril fans! Jeff, Adam, and Brooks should have a solid weekend of metal classics in store this weekend, presumably at 9:00 PM each night, while you must be 21 to attend either night, and there's no announced cover charge. Check the above links for more details! Peril have proven to be a favourite sight in the area over the years, and their metal attack can't be denied, so don't miss their return to the Soo this weekend, and here's Peril live in Vanderbilt!
Finally for today's preview post, Caveman Morrison frontman Tym Morrison will continue his ongoing weekly concert arrangement at The Harp Bar & Grill with solo gigs there TOMORROW & SATURDAY NIGHT! Note again that Tym's Facebook event page for this weekend only explicitly advertises tomorrow's gig with no Saturday show indicated, but his website's calendar still advertises him as playing both nights, so unless we get firm clarification, we'll treat both days as on. Entering his 45th consecutive week of solo acoustic cover shows at the former Madison's Pub, look for more of the same entertainment this weekend (or at least tomorrow), as his talents and song knowledge are quite extensive! There's no announced cover charge this weekend, you must be 19 to attend, and a 10:00 PM start time is in effect for tomorrow/both nights(?) For more details, check the above links, don't miss Tym's latest unplugged action at The Harp, and here he is covering Heart's "Alone" live at Mill Square!
That's all for today, but stay tuned for our Ripcordz preview and this month's Defunct Local Band Profiles TOMORROW! Thanks everyone!
