On this Thursday morning, it's about time to tackle another weekend of concert previews! There may be a short notice show or two to confirm, but this is the currently known roster for hard rock fans this weekend in the Soo. With that said, here's what you need to know, starting with some SHORT NOTICE LOCAL CONCERT ALERTS!
Gliss Steak & Seafood TONIGHT, TOMORROW, and SATURDAY, prolific local hard rock singer/guitarist Tym Morrison will return to The Roadhouse Bar & Grill on Trunk Road for a more-typical nighttime concert TOMORROW NIGHT! Apologies for the short notice on the Roadhouse show, it was only publically announced via it's Facebook event page yesterday, though note that Tym had acknowledged it on his personal Facebook page last month, along with a second Roadhouse gig in a few weeks to be announced. While his Gliss shows are no surprise, and continue his clockwork-like schedule at The Quality Inn's restaurant, fans in the east end or of his later nighttime shows will want to take note of TOMORROW'S Road House gig, which is his first there in over three months. Tym has a busy weekend in store, but you have plenty of options to take in his acoustic hard rock covers over the coming evenings!
While his Gliss shows remain 6:00 PM matinees with no announced cover charge or age limit (but remember where they're being held), TOMORROW'S Roadhouse show ia a 19+ affair at 10:00 PM, though also with no announced cover. Click here and visit the above links for full details, and here's Tym live!
Project 906 will apparently return to The Back Bay Grill & Games at Bay Mills Resort & Casino THIS SATURDAY NIGHT, at least! Apologies again for the short notice, the band only announced the show(s?) via their Facebook page on Monday. Last seen rocking both Brimley and Eckerman last week (that Brimley show was at Pickles), this will be Billy, Joe, Dustin, and Will's first engagement at Bay Mills' waterfront bar and concert venue in two months, and their mixture of blues and hard rock should find another good audience on SATURDAY! Now, the band didn't specify the date(s?) of this weekend's Bay Mills run, and while we are treating this as a Saturday nighter only due to their past dates there also scheduled that way, we will update this if they're playing both nights and/or tomorrow alone. In any event, expect a 10:00 PM-ish start time, no announced cover charge, and a 21+ age limit. See above for more details, and here's Project 906 live!
The Rednecks Saloon TOMORROW NIGHT for one night only! As advertised via members' personal Facebook accounts and the venue's physical marquee (the band still doesn't have a public internet page), this will be Jamie, Mike, Ryan, and Steven's first public show since playing their first Rockstar Bar gigs last month, and they should have more fan favourite covers in store as they return to the site of their live debut once again tomorrow! Note that this is a one nighter, with another band of drummer Steven Flint's apparently playing at Rednecks on Saturday for 2 sets with an opening band to be announced. It's not publically clear whether it's Mourning Wood, Nameus, or an entirely different band playing on Saturday night, but if we get confirmation regarding Saturday night's performers, we'll let you know!
In any event, tomorrow' Band Camp Rejects show at the former Nicolet Tavern will have a 19+ age limit, 10:00 PM-ish start time, and no announced cover charge. Check the above links (such as they are) for more details, and here's The Band Camp Rejects live!
Banned will return to The Northern Pines Lounge at the St Ignace Kewadin Casino for shows there TOMORROW & SATURDAY NIGHT! Last seen in both Hessel and Manistique three weeks ago, this weekend's St. Ignace stops are the last publically advertised gigs of 2016 for this busy trio, though they could always have a surprise non-Kewadin gig in store for the next three weeks, much like that late notice Hessel show. Banned are a reliably entertaining sight for local hard rock fans, so whether this is their 2016 closer or not, consider a trip to St. Ignace to take in their diverse but often heavy covers! As usual for Banned's Kewadin stops, expect a 21+ age limit, no announced cover charge, and 9:00 PM start times. Check the above links for more details, and here's Banned live at this very Kewadin Casino lounge!!
That's all for today, but stay tuned for more news and updates over the coming days! Thanks everyone!
