As we enter the latter half of the week, let's touch on this weekend's concert previews today (barring potential late notice announcements), including a pair of shows in the E.U.P. and some familiar veterans on this side of the border, but first, here's a SHORT NOTICE LOCAL CONCERT ALERT!
Lucky 13 will return to The Rockstar Bar for a solo headlining concert TOMORROW NIGHT! Apologies for the short notice, this show was announced via it's official Facebook event page on Sunday, so we held it for today's previews. A one nighter due to Saturday's show by local country cover band Summer Thunder, this will be Ed, Jeremey, Jeff, and Roger's first announced concert since rocking this venue on St. Patrick's Day last month, and they should be up to their usual tricks as they rock The Rockstar Bar once again with a hard hitting night of familiar favourites, so keep TOMORROW'S show in mind! This is a 19+ event, a 10:30 PM start time is advertised, and bring cash just in case there's a cover. See above for more details, and here's Lucky 13 live last year!
Moving to previously announced concerts, local classic/hard rock trio Mourning Wood's weekly jam night at The Rednecks Saloon will continue into it's 6th week TONIGHT, but there will be a melancholy air to the proceedings, as this will be their first concert since the passing of drummer T.J. Case's father Mike on Sunday. Tonight's jam night will actually take place the night before Mike's funeral and celebration of life (click here for full details), so I'm sure things will be extra emotional for T.J., the entire Case family, and all of Mike's close friends and students. The show must go on though, and Mourning Wood will hopefully rally together to deliver a fun night of hard-edged covers, with hopefully lots of attendees jamming alongside in Mike's memory! And of course, I send my condolences out to T.J. at this difficult time, but make him proud with a great set tonight!
Note that there's no announced Mourning Wood shows for this weekend (barring a possible late notice matinee) as T.J. and frontman Terry Eaton will be playing at The Rednecks Saloon this weekend with their other band Asylum Country, so keep those in mind if you're a country fan or want to offer your condolences to T.J.. As for TONIGHT'S jam night, there's no announced cover charge, a 9:30 PM start time, and a 19+ age limit. For more details, here's Mourning Wood live last year!
The Harp Bar & Grill, where local hard rock solo musician Tym Morrison will continue his weekly acoustic concert run TOMORROW & SATURDAY NIGHT! The longtime Caveman Morrison frontman has teased having new tunes ready to add to his extensive setlist at the former Madison's Pub, but even if he didn't, his guitar skill and natural ease will go a long way to ensuring a good time with his two shows this weekend! Like usual for his Harp run, there are 10:00 PM start times in effect for both nights, you must be 19 to attend either night, and there's no announced cover charges. For more details, visit the official Facebook event page, don't miss Tym's entertaining solo shows this weekend, and here's Tym live at The Harp early in his weekly run there!
We'll close today's previews across the river in St. Ignace, Michigan, where Sault Michigan hard rock trio Power Slug will return to the stage at The Northern Pines Lounge at the St. Ignace Kewadin Casino TOMORROW & SATURDAY NIGHT! Last seen (that we've heard about) at the I-500 beer tent in February, this will be the first concert weekend in St. Ignace from Chris, Bob, and Chris since January, and if you want to chug your mug with Power Slug, now is as good a time as any, as they haven't been playing shows at the same frequency that they used to, at least not that have been publically announced. Keep this weekend's shows in mind if you're in the E.U.P. for some good hard rocking times! There's no announced cover charges, 21+ age limits, and 9:00 PM start times in effect. See above for more details, and here's Power Slug live at The Bird!
That's all for today, but stay tuned for more news and possible late notice concert previews to come! Thanks everyone!
