LOCAL CONCERT ALERTS (The 3 Day Millionaires & Tym Morrison), A New Local Band, And Concert Previews!!

It's now time for our first weekend concert preview post of the month, including some LOCAL CONCERT ALERTS (some on SHORT NOTICE), and a new local band, but first, I wanted to note that a celebration of life concert for late That's Chester guitarist Eugene Orlando will be held tonight at The Water Tower Pub featuring his former Agave Blue bandmates, That's Chester frontman Greg Simpson, and surprise guests. Fans and friends of Eugene's would be hard pressed to miss this one, so check the above links for more details! Now, let's kick off our previews with a new band & their next show!

We can now add new local classic/hard rock cover quartet The 3 Day Millionaires to our band links, as they now have a Facebook page, and therein, they've announced that their second concert & first solo show will take place TOMORROW NIGHT at The Rockstar Bar! Apologies for the short notice, the concert was just announced on Tuesday, and was reportedly a "last minute booking" to begin with. This new band from Havadder bandmates Travis Sharpe & Scott McLurg, Boxcar Junction frontman Steve Dowding, and Lucky 13 guitarist Jeremey Salatuk made a positive impact in their live concert debut last month, and they should be even more prepared for TOMORROW, especially with a full night's worth of music for their second gig, so keep this talented group of familiar faces in mind for this weekend! Note that The 3 Day Millionaires are not visibly playing on Saturday night, but as of this writing, I can't confirm who is.

Like usual for The Rockstar Bar, there's a 10:30 PM start time in effect, no announced cover charge (but have $5 or so on hand just in case), and you must be 19 to attend. For more details, visit the official Facebook event page! We don't yet have any videos of The 3 Day Millionaires to preview them with, and what this band means for Havadder's status is to be determined, but their lineup speaks for itself, so consider giving them a look TOMORROW at The Rockstar Bar, and like them above!

Next up, local hard rock solo singer/guitarist Tym Morrison has confirmed his next acoustic concerts at Gliss Steak & Seafood for TONIGHT, TOMORROW, and SATURDAY, so we'll now add his March shows there to our concert calendar! Apologies again for the short notice, we were waiting for these to be announced on Facebook. These shows will join, unless otherwise announced, acoustic gigs at The Quality Inn's restaurant on March 10th-12th, 17th-19th, 24th-26th, and 31st-April 2nd, so if you're up for more acoustic hard rock favourites downtown this month, you have plenty of options as his weekly arrangement with Gliss marches on! Note that if there's any variance to his schedule this month, or any additional gigs at other venues, I can't confirm them yet as his website is down at the moment, but like usual, we'll approach his gigs after April 2nd when announced. 

TONIGHT, TOMORROW, and SATURDAY'S shows have 6:00 PM start times, no announced cover charges, and no age limits, but remember that this is a sit-down restaurant. For more details, visit the official Facebook event page, and for a preview, here's Tym live!

Lastly for currently known hard rock shows this weekend in the Soo, a special acoustic show goes down at The Gore Street Cafe TOMORROW NIGHT with alternative hard rock trio The Din and pop punk quartet Stereo North joining forces! The last hard rock/punk-featured concert to take place during the ongoing Fishbowl Festival of Community, Food, Arts, and Culture, this event will unite these two bands (who already play live frequently) just five nights before they compete in the first semifinal of this month's VM Radio Battle of the Bands, so if you want an unplugged preview of Wednesday's action, head to the laundromat! It'll be interesting to hear both bands in an acoustic format, but this does flow more with the types of concerts that The Gore Street Cafe usually hosts, and it's a nice compliment as The Fishbowl Festival marches onward! Admission will be just $5 for this show, though it is free if you have or are buying a $25 pass for all festival events. The concert is ALL AGES, and everything will start at 7:00 PM.

For more details, visit the official Facebook event page! This should be a fun concert for fans of alternative and punk music, and again, this will be a Heavy Head-less preview of night #1 of the VM Radio Battle of the Bands, so will this show give fans any hints as to what to look for at The Canadian on Wednesday? Be at The Gore Street Cafe to find out, and for a preview, here's The Din's current lineup!

Finally, here's another new solo vocal/guitar cover from former Elipzis bassist/Riot! By Night frontman Ryan Harrison, as per his YouTube channel from last week, and it's curiously of the Sault Michigan-area native covering Tina Turner's "What's Love Got To Do With It"! Filmed with the same vertical camera setup as his recent Evans Blue cover, it's a fun and well done cover that doesn't overly feel like it's from such an atypical artist from his range, so give it a look below, and stay tuned for more from him!

That's all for today, but stay tuned for more news and updates in the coming days! Thanks everyone!
