After having just one post in the past 4 days, let's get back into the groove with this weekend's concert previews! It's a relatively light weekend to start the month of June, barring any more late notice announcements, but we have lots of SHORT NOTICE LOCAL CONCERT ALERTS to kick off our hard rock concert previews, so here's what you should know!
Tym Morrison has announced his next solo dates at Gliss Steak & Seafood for TOMORROW & SATURDAY, so we'll add his slate of June 2016 dates to our concert listings now! Apologies for the short notice on this weekend's dates, we were waiting for the Facebook event page to confirm them before announcing them here. Along with TOMORROW & SATURDAY'S Gliss shows, Tym will also bring his acoustic solo show to The Quality Inn's house restaurant for shows on June 10th & 11th, 17th & 18th, and 24th & 25th, with his previously teased return to Thursday nights at this venue still awaiting a firm return date. Tym's long-term arrangement at Gliss continues to successfully march into the summer, so keep his June dates in mind, as well as his previously announced Algoma Ride for Autism set in Runway Park on June 11th too! All of his Gliss shows this month have 6:00 PM start times and no announced cover charges or age limits, but remember that this is a sit-down restaurant.
Tym's acoustic matinees should deliver some solid hard rock hits this month, including TOMORROW & SATURDAY, so check the above links for more details on the next month of his Gliss run, and here he is live!
second Redneck Rock Bash goes down THIS SATURDAY NIGHT at The Rednecks Saloon! Apologies again for the short notice, we had heard about the show via a Musicians Wanted Facebook group discussion searching for performers since April 10th, but we waited for an official public confirmation before calling it here, which only came on Tuesday. A sequel to April 23rd's initial Redneck Rock Bash from promoters Twin City Sound & Entertainment, this will again unite five local acts for a night of varied local music, so who all is performing? Listed acts include classic metal quintet Project 421 (replacing The Din, who are focusing on their album release right now), punk trio Redundant (the only returning band from April's Rock Bash), indie rock solo artist Jacob "Shit Creek Survivor" Quarrell, The Leash Kids (an experimental/rap duo from The Gore Street Cafe's Sam Decter & rapper Mikey Thomas), and classic/hard rock trio Mourning Wood (whose members run Twin City Sound.)
Solid, diverse lineup to be sure, so keep it in mind despite the short notice on SATURDAY NIGHT! There's no announced cover charge for Redneck Rock Bash 2, which has a 19+ age limit and 10:00 PM start time (and for the record, I can't confirm if any of these bands are playing tomorrow night at Rednecks or not, Mourning Wood in particular, but we'll let you know if something is announced!) Check the official Facebook event page for more details, and here's Project 421 live!
In one more late notice concert announcement, local classic/hard rock cover trio Havadder will return to the stage THIS SATURDAY NIGHT themselves at The Rockstar Bar! Again, apologies for the short notice, we only heard about this show via the official Facebook event page yesterday. Playing just their third show of the year and first show in two months, this will be Havadder's second live appearance since contracting to a trio lineup full time, and while we haven't seen Jason, Travis, and Scott much this year, their well tested and hard hitting covers should find another solid audience on SATURDAY NIGHT! There's no cover charge for SATURDAY'S 19+ concert, which has a 10:30 PM start time. For more details, visit the above links, and here's Havadder live last year!
Finally for this weekend's previews, we'll head across to The Rapids Lounge at the Sault Michigan Kewadin Casino TOMORROW & SATURDAY NIGHT, where local classic/hard rock cover quartet Highway 63 will hit the stage for two previously announced shows! Though still not plugging new dates on Facebook, Kewadin Casino's entertainment page confirms that the Monkey's Uncle successors will continue their one-weekend-a-month run of shows at The Rapids Lounge this weekend, so keep their often heavy and classics-filled sets in mind for this weekend if you want some live music action in the E.U.P.! There's no announced cover charges for these 21+ concerts, which will start at 9:00 PM each night. For more details, visit the above links, and here's Highway 63 live earlier this year!
That's all for now, but stay tuned for this month's "Where Are The New Albums?" post next, plus more news to come! Thanks everyone!
