Hey guys, let's get this weekend's concert previews rolling, and even though there's a sharp post-Halloween drop for hard rock and punk shows this weekend, there's some notable events going down, so here's what you need to know, starting with SHORT NOTICE LOCAL CONCERT ALERTS for this weekend! (Updated at 4:31 PM)
First up is a show that, when we originally posted this, was a private event at a not-completely-stated address, but because the Facebook event page lists a finite address and is now publically viewable, we'll call it on here. The event in question is another "Bloody Basement Jam" from Blood Shed Productions and Heavy North Entertainment TOMORROW NIGHT, which will feature four acts from The Devil's Night show at The Oddfellows Hall (and two that weren't there) returning for a sequel of sorts to that event, so who all's playing? The headliners are James Watterworth & Chase Wigmore from The Strange Coyotes (no sign of Mike Haggith) at 11:00 PM, with local goregrind duo Rotopsy on at 10:00 PM, local grunge/punk solo project Telephone & Address at 9:00 PM, the sporadically seen original version of Brutaly Fatal at 8:00 PM, local rapper Mikey Thomas at 7:30 PM, and Rotopsy bassist Tyler Gibson's Crucify The Whore solo project kicking things off at 7:00 PM. With only Chris from Telephone & Address not on the Devil's Night lineup, fans of that show shouldn't want to miss this one!
This show will be held at the basement of a residence at 109 Weldon Avenue (a couple of minutes from The Canadian Nightclub), which is definitely now being advertised publically. Doors open at 6:30 PM, this is ALL AGES, and there is no cover. For more details, visit the above links! This should be a fun concert for Blood Shed loyalists, and it's nice to see Brutaly Fatal playing again, so keep this event in mind if you're central, or just want some live grind, and here's The Strange Coyotes live last week (yes, the video works, just double click it to watch!)
Caveman Morrison frontman Tym Morrison, who will return to The Roadhouse Bar & Grill on Trunk Road for a solo acoustic show TOMORROW NIGHT! Don't worry, he's not done at The Harp Bar & Grill, and we'll get into his new November dates there in a second, but Tym is scheduled to return to his former regular stomping grounds for a rare non-customer appreciation night tomorrow, as The Harp is instead hosting local rock cover quartet Changing Lanes tomorrow night instead (source here), though no word on why Tym's not playing there on Saturday. Nice to see Tym back there again, though it is a little odd seeing Tym not at The Harp at all for a second time in three weekends. If you're hoping for new gigs at the former Madison's Pub, we will now add scheduled hosted jam night date there on Friday, November 14th (no listed solo date on the 15th) plus full weekends on November 21st-22nd & 27th & 28th courtesy of his website, and like before, we'll wait to touch on future months due to the immense length of his listed Harp bookings.
And of course, I apologize for the late notice on TOMORROW'S show, Tym only just publicized it on Facebook on Tuesday. Admission for all of the above dates is likely free, 19+ age limits are likely, and 10:00 PM start times are announced. For more details, click here and see above! While Harp regulars should definitely consider seeing Changing Lanes tomorrow (especially to see what Buzz from Garden of Bedlam has been up to during their recent break), east enders and Tym fans should not bypass his Road House return TOMORROW, so keep that and other November dates in mind, and here he is at The Service Grill!
Exiled will rock a special "belated birthday bash" TOMORROW hosted by members of the regional branch of the Highland Clan Motorcycle Club! Apologies again for the short notice, the band confirmed the show on Facebook on Monday, but we held it for our previews and to get more information on it. The second 2014 public event that Exiled have played relating to a local motorcycle club (after one for the Jokers Club in September), this appears to be a group birthday bash for members, but there are charitable causes attached, as you can donate a new toy at the door for free admission, with toys going towards their Ishpeming chapter's Toys For Tots promotion, which is awesome of them! If you can't donate a toy, admission will be $5 for this event, which has no announced age limits, and Exiled will be on at 8:00 PM tomorrow night.
As for the location, the event will take place at the Highland Clan's local clubhouse at 235 Magazine Street (minutes from The Satisfied Frog), so for more details, visit the official Facebook event page! Exiled have definitely been making a name at some diverse locales since their launch, and showing clear support for local bikers and their causes, so hopefully this is a successful event TOMORROW NIGHT, and we'll let you know when Exiled video footage turns up!
Finally for known heavier concert previews this weekend, we'll touch on the only previously announced hard rock shows that we had heard of, as Sault Michigan hard rock quartet 415E will continue their busy recent concert schedule with their returns to The Northern Pines Lounge at the St. Ignace Kewadin Casino TOMORROW & SATURDAY NIGHT! Last seen there with their temporary duo lineup in August, this will obviously be the guys' first show in St. Ignace since restoring their full quartet form, so if you haven't seen Chris, Dave, Mitch, and Tony live together yet, this weekend's as good a time as any, as you never know when they'll be back on stage! Admission is free for this weekend's 21+ concerts, and 9:00 PM start times are likely. For more details, check the above links, don't miss 415E in action THIS WEEKEND, and here's their original lineup live last year!
That's all for today, but stay tuned for mre news and notes over the weekend! Thanks everyone!
