Another weekend of concerts is upon us, so let's kick off this weekend's hard rock concert previews with most of the currently announced shows in the area! This isn't a quiet weekend, so we're holding our previews of Saturday's Blackwood Sinners and Deathsticks shows for TOMORROW's post, alongside any late notice gigs that come our way. Now, here's what you need to know, starting with LOCAL CONCERT ALERTS, two of which are SHORT NOTICE!
Local party hard rock trio Stiffler's Mom will return to The Rockstar Bar for one night only TOMORROW NIGHT! Apologies for the short notice, the band only announced the show via their Facebook page on Tuesday. A one-nighter due to Saturday's Blackwood Sinners concert (which is being previewed in tomorrow's SMS post), this will mark Stiffler's Mom's first publically announced concert in over a month, so if you missed Greg, Mike, and Jon in September, be at The Rockstar Bar TOMORROW for their high energy covers! Also newly announced is a rare Stiffler's Mom solo concert with advance notice, as they'll provide the musical entertainment for "Halloween at The Tech" on Saturday, October 29th, which is a seasonal event to benefit the former St. Mary's College's athletic programs. A haunted hallway, contests, prizes, and some sort of mystery "unveiling" will be among the night's entertainment, so definitely keep this event in mind for a Halloween weekend attraction!
No word on ticket prices for this 19+ event as of this writing, but there are advance tickets on sale starting today at The Tech. An 8:00 PM start time is advertised, and while the concert proper will presumably be held in The W.W. Baldwin Auditorium, this isn't publically confirmed. As for TOMORROW'S Rockstar Bar show, expect a 10:30 PM-ish start time, 19+ age limit, and no cover. Stiffler's Mom are staying busy this month, and they should have a solid show TOMORROW & over the Halloween weekend, so see above for more details, and here they are live!
Next up, Sault Michigan hard/blues rock quartet Project 906 will return to the stage THIS SATURDAY NIGHT when they return to the Back Bay Grill & Games at Bay Mills Resort & Casino in Brimley for one night only! Again, apologies for the short notice, the band only announced the show via their Facebook event page on Tuesday. Despite announcing last month that they were taking "a short break" due to new or expecting fathers within their ranks, Project 906 are back sooner than that news implied, which is great news for fans, especially after guitarist Joe Jenkins' old band Exiled never returned from their baby-related hiatus! THIS SATURDAY'S show will mark Project 906's first show at Bay Mills' waterfront bar since April, and they should be in fine form with their entertaining hard rock covers, so don't miss out! This 21+ show in Brimley has no announced cover charge and a 10:00 PM start time, so see above for more details, and here's Project 906 live earlier this year!
Gliss Steak & Seafood will march on for the prolific Tym Morrison, as he's scheduled to rock Gliss again TONIGHT, TOMORROW, and SATURDAY! This prolific veteran singer/guitarist will once again provide the music for the next three evenings at The Quality Inn's house restaurant, and if you're familiar with Tym's extensive local music work, you'll know that hard rock covers should play a big part in his large setlist this weekend, as usual! As usual for his frequent weekly appearances at the downtown restaurant, these three matinees are at 6:00 PM, and while none have an announced cover charge or age limit, remember where these shows are taking place. For more details on Tym Morrison's shows tonight, tomorrow, and Saturday, visit the official Facebook event page, and here's Tym live!
Finally for this concert preview post, Winnipeg pop punk trio Mulligrub will make their local concert debut at The Gore Street Cafe TOMORROW NIGHT! Making their second stop of their "Fall Outta Love" tour of Eastern Canada, this 2/3rds female power trio should leave a solid impression on fans with their indie punk originals, and much like Iansucks last week at the laundromat, they should give a nice sampling of the Winnipeg scene for local fans tomorrow! Local support will come via an acoustic set from The Din, albeit sans drummer Brandan Glew, who is apparently missing tomorrow's show due to work commitments. However, Mike & Tammy will soldier on with a rare duo set, and expect many of their fan favourite originals in an acoustic setting, which isn't a foreign concept if you're familiar with the band! As usual for concerts at The Gore Street Cafe, this ALL AGES concert will take place tomorrow at 7:00 PM, and admission is under their typical "pay what you can" model. Visit the official Facebook event page for more details, and here's Mulligrub live & unplugged!
That's all for today, but stay tuned for our Blackwood Sinners and Deathsticks previews (and more) TOMORROW! Thanks everyone!
