LOCAL CONCERT ALERTS (Lucky 13 & Tym Morrison) And Most Of This Weekend's Concert Previews!!

Another weekend is upon us for us to preview on the SMS, so let's tackle most of this weekend's currently announced hard rock concert previews today, including some LOCAL CONCERT ALERTS, some on SHORT NOTICE! For reference sake, we will preview Saturday night's Project 906 concert and any further late notice shows either tonight or early tomorrow. Now, here's what you should know for this weekend!

Local classic/hard rock cover quartet Lucky 13 will be the second band to play at The Park Grille when they rock out at the Industrial Park Crescent restaurant/venue TOMORROW NIGHT! Apologies for the short notice, the venue only confirmed the show on their Facebook page on Monday, with the band following suit the next day. An apparent replacement for fellow local cover veterans The 3 Day Millionaires (who are advertised for tomorrow on The Park Grille's website), Lucky 13 will be playing just their third concert with new guitarist Robin Lee, and their blend of entertaining & often heavy covers should find a strong audience at The Park Grille TOMORROW! No word though on what happened to The 3 Day Millionaires, ironically featuring ex-Lucky 13 guitarist Jeremey Salatuk, but we'll confirm their other announced shows at this venue on the site soon.

An early start time of 8:00 PM is in effect for this concert, which has no announced cover charge or age limit, but remember that this is a restaurant. For more details, visit the above links and the official Facebook event page, The Park Grille is now in our concert venue listings, and here's Lucky 13 live!

Next up, and with new Gliss Steak & Seafood shows now announced for TOMORROW & SATURDAY NIGHT, we'll add Tym Morrison's remaining April concerts to our listings, plus a return to The Road House Bar & Grill TOMORROW NIGHT as well! Apologies for the short notice on this weekend's shows, they were only confirmed via their respective Facebook event pages on Tuesday. Following this past weekend's Gliss shows (listed early as they were added with the later-cancelled gig on Thursday, March 31st gig), Tym will be join TONIGHT & TOMORROW'S shows at the downtown restaurant with gigs on April 15th & 16th, 22nd & 23rd, and 29th & 30th, and remember that we still confirm them on a month by month basis due to the amount and uncertain end date of his Gliss arrangement. Meanwhile, TOMORROW NIGHT's Road House show will continue a recent trend of Tym playing at the Trunk Road venue on a Friday early in each month since January.

It's not publically stated if Tym has a new monthly engagement at The Road House (a venue he played weekly at a few years back), but the pattern is a good indicator to look for him there on May 6th or 13th! Tym's Gliss shows this weekend and beyond are all at 6:00 PM with no announced cover charges or age limits (but remember where they're being held), while TOMORROW'S Road House show has a likely 10:00 PM start time, 19+ age limit, and no cover. Click here & here for more details on all of his April gigs, and for a preview, here's Tym live!

Moving to previously announced concerts, let's take a brief detour to The Northern Pines Lounge at the St. Ignace Kewadin Casino, where Sault Michigan classic/hard rock quartet Highway 63 are scheduled to rock out TOMORROW & SATURDAY NIGHT! Though the band's curious absence of public concert promotion since February has continued, the Sir Charge successors have maintained their Facebook page since, and are still advertised to rock St. Ignace's Kewadin branch this weekend, so unless something to the interim is announced, prepare for their hard hitting covers over the next two nights! As usual, fans can see Henry, Chris, Nathan, and Ron tomorrow & Saturday night at around 9:00 PM, you must be 21 or older to attend, and there's no announced cover charges. For more details, visit the above links, and for a preview, here's Highway 63 live!

Finally for today's previews, let's head back to Sault Ontario for the second annual chili cook-off fundraiser event THIS SATURDAY NIGHT for the annual Ride For Sight motorcycle rally for blindness fundraising & awareness, as Stiffler's Mom will again be providing musical entertainment! After a successful first installment last year, the local party hard rock cover trio will be back at The Garden River Community Centre at 6 Shingwauk Street on Saturday to continue their support of the rally and charitable causes within, so whether you're a fan of theirs, a chili aficionado, someone affected by blindness, or an active participant in the Ride For Sight, you have multiple reasons to consider coming out! Stiffler's Mom will close the day's entertainment (timeslot unannounced), but the chili cook-off proper will begin at 5:00 PM on Saturday, with raffles and cook-off judging/awards coming in the interim.

Also, note that local rock frontmen Justin Langlois (Redundant) and Jamie July (The Band Camp Rejects) will be among the competitors, so good luck to them and all other competitors! Tickets are $20 via committee members (and presumably at the door) for this all ages event, but promoters are again asking prospective attendees to buy tickets at local Scotiabank branches, as the bank is again matching ticket sales dollar for dollar as part of the donations to The Foundation Fighting Blindness, which remains a great gesture! This should be a fun event again for a worthy cause, so visit the official Facebook event page for more details, and here's Stiffler's Mom live!

That's all for today, but stay tuned for our Project 906 preview and more next! Thanks everyone!
