For this new video/concert preview post, some readers may notice that a recently announced battle of the bands isn't in this post. We're saving it for our next news post in order to give it proper emphasis while not downplaying this weekend's concert previews (including SHORT NOTICE LOCAL CONCERT ALERTS), so look for full current details this weekend! Now, here's what you should know concerning hard rock shows this weekend, with some new videos to round things out!
Mourning Wood will rock The Rednecks Saloon for the second weekend in three weeks TOMORROW & SATURDAY NIGHT! Apologies for the short notice, the shows were only announced on the official Facebook event page earlier this week, though we did get some more notice on these shows than we often get. Fresh off of their new lineup's Reggie's West debuts last week, look for more entertaining and often heavy covers from Terry, Steven, Paul, and Glen this weekend, with indications being that their new incarnation is getting better and better, complete with new songs, so keep their returns to the former Nicolet Tavern in mind! TOMORROW & SATURDAY'S shows are 19+ events with no announced cover charge and 10:00 PM start times. For more details, visit the above links, and here's Mourning Wood at the same venue!
Moving to previously announced concerts, the lengthy weekly concert runs from the prolific Tym Morrison are advertised as continuing this weekend, including matinees at Gliss Steak & Seafood TONIGHT, TOMORROW, and SATURDAY, and regular nighttime concerts at The Harp Bar & Grill TOMORROW & SATURDAY NIGHT! Tym's ongoing shows at these two venues continue to be successful, so if you're up for some unplugged hard rock cover action at supper-time or at a more typical concert hour, you have 5 options once again this weekend! Note that October gigs of Tym's will be added to our listings when confirmed outside of his website, and like usual, we take them a month at a time, as his website's calendar lists consistent weekly shows through 2022. Tym's Gliss shows are, as usual, 6:00 PM affairs with no announced cover charges or age limits (but remember, this is a restaurant), and the Harp shows are at 10:00 PM with no cover and 19+ age limits. Check the above links for more details, and here's Tym live a few years back!
We'll close today with some new video finds, including a new clip from this weekend's Fuck The Facts concert at The Oddfellows Hall, specifically of opening goregrind solo project Crucify The Whore playing the original "Seshing In June Bugs" to open their set. Filmed by Jean-Paul "Phat Boii" Archambault and uploaded to label Blood Shed Productions' YouTube channel on Tuesday, it captures the minimalistic goregrind fury pretty well, and benefits from daytime lighting, though no word on if J.P. filmed anything extra. Give this short new video a look below!
Finally, here's a cryptic performance video from AlgomA guitarist Boyd Rendell's YouTube channel in January, as credited to the band name Punitive Parent (which references schema therapy.) The song is called "Don't Be Lame", which is repeated throughout the description, and it's a drone metal original that uniquely features numerous instances of Boyd playing with a transparent ghost effect in a purple room. It's definitely interesting, especially if you like doom metal and experimentation, but is this a side project that was/is in the works, or a one-off posting? I'm not sure, but it's interesting, and check it out below!
That's all for today, but stay tuned for more on the site shortly, including details on that battle of the bands! Thanks everyone!
