LOCAL CONCERT ALERTS (Havadder, Tym Morrison, And RPM), And More!!

Today, we'll close up this weekend's hard rock concert previews (barring any more late notice announcements), and just as a reminder, Saving Abel rock the Sault Michigan Kewadin Casino TONIGHT, and tickets are still available! Today, we have SHORT NOTICE LOCAL CONCERT ALERTS from three different acts this weekend (with one playing throughout the month as well), so read on below for those and some assorted recent notes!

Local classic/hard rock quartet Havadder will return to the stage TONIGHT & TOMORROW NIGHT with solo headlining concerts at The Rednecks Saloon! Apologies for the short notice, the band only announced the shows on their Facebook event page yesterday. Last seen there on St. Patrick's Day over two weeks ago, these shows are also being visibly hyped up for coinciding with the Easter weekend (most other area hard rock bands didn't announce the connection), and they're also planning to debut some new songs in their setlists, so keep that in mind as well! Postings also reveal that guitarist Jamie July will be "back in full force", after missing their last show with an illness, so keep that in mind! Havadder will be on both nights at around 10:00 PM, you must be 19 to attend, and there's no announced cover charges. For more details, visit the above links, and here's Havadder live last year!

Next up, fans will see online page-less classic/hard rock band RPM live at The Rockstar Bar TOMORROW NIGHT as well! Again, apologies for the short notice, we only heard about this show via The Rockstar Bar's Martin Fiser on their Facebook group yesterday. A one nighter for unannounced reasons (country cover band Thin Ice are playing there on Saturday), this will be RPM's second announced concert at this venue of the year, following a Saturday nighter in January. We don't hear a lot from Dino, Marcel, Lindsay, and Ben, partly as they don't have any online pages, but they've been gaining their own local profile, and Lindsay's past bands are a good sign, so hopefully RPM have a great show tomorrow! Bring $5 for a cover just in case, a 10:00 PM start time is likely, and you must be 19 to attend. For more details, visit the above links, and hopefully we hear and see more from RPM at some point!

Lastly for the weekend concert previews, we'll add local hard rock solo musician Tym Morrison's April concert slate at The Harp Bar & Grill to our listings! Apologies for the short notice, but we were waiting for official confirmation outside of Tym's website, which hasn't came as of this writing, but his website's calendar is usually reliable. Tym is scheduled to rock the former Madison's Pub TONIGHT & TOMORROW NIGHT, followed by shows on April 10th & 11th, 17th & 18th, and 24th & 25th, and while there is a UFC PPV on the 25th, Tym did play The Harp on the night of the last UFC PPV, so we won't assume he's not playing then until we hear otherwise. For what it's worth, Tym's scheduled bookings on his calendar end on Friday, May 1st, but whether that's his Harp run's end date or just when his last updates ended is to be determined. Either way, look for Tym to deliver fun hard rock and metal covers to fans this month!

There are 19+ age limits in effect for all of these shows, none have an announced cover, and all have likely 10:00 PM start times. For more details, visit the above links! Assuming these shows are on, Tym should be up to his usual diverse and prolific tricks throughout April, so don't miss him THIS WEEKEND or later in the month, and here he is at The Harp!

Finally for today, here's three assorted shorter items from the last few days, and as usual, these are in alphabetical order by band name:

  • On Wednesday, local all-female hard rock quartet The Danger Cats teased on their Facebook page that they'd be recording one of their songs today, though they left it's identity vague. Is this just to get a studio version of another original online, or is more planned? Hopefully we hear more soon!
  • Local doom/punk trio The Revolution have officially reunited after a month-long breakup! The band revealed the news on their Facebook page on Tuesday, also confirming that work will resume on their debut EP "Roll Call", and they'll begin tracking it next week. Great news, so hopefully Austin, Jordan, and Brandan pick up where they left off in short order, and they're now back in our active band links!
  • Sault Michigan metal trio Tantrym Tyme have apparently staged a "lock-in" since Tuesday with the intention of writing and recording songs towards a debut full length album. As elaborated on their Facebook page this week, the guys have laid down all of their tracks save for vocals and some guitar riffs, and will finalize them today, with preliminary plans to release a four song album (including one cover) and do this again in the summer. Very interesting, so stay tuned as we hear more on Tantrym Tyme's recording plans!

That's all for today, but stay tuned for a new news post tomorrow, with more to come! Thanks everyone!
