Another weekend of concert previews is upon us at the SMS, so let's cover all of that today, starting with LOCAL CONCERT ALERTS, one SHORT NOTICE, the others coming next month!
Local classic/hard rock cover quartet The 3 Day Millionaires will return to The Rockstar Bar for one night only TOMORROW NIGHT! Apologies for the short notice, the show was only announced via the venue's official Facebook event page on Sunday. Fresh off of their successful set at last week's Rock 4 Autism fundraiser, this will be their first stop at The Algonquin Hotel's upstairs bar in three weeks, and they should kick things up with their fan favourite covers once again, so keep their return in mind for TOMORROW! Note that this is a one nighter (as recently usual for The Millionaires) due to Saturday night's Obsession concert. You can take in The 3 Day Millionaires TOMORROW at around 10:30 PM, there is no announced cover charge, and you must be 19 or older to attend. For more details, check the above links, and for a preview, here's a new video to check out of The Millionaires!
Filmed by attendee Jessie Dawn at the aforementioned Rock 4 Autism event at The Canadian Nightclub and shared to the band's Facebook page on Sunday, this is of a much newer cover than you may expect, with the guys covering Kings of Leon's "Sex on Fire" in this 49 second clip. I'm not a fan of the original song, but The Millionaires handle it well and with enthusiasm, and it's a shame that the whole song wasn't filmed, as the quality and angle are both pretty good! Give it a look below, and see much more TOMORROW NIGHT at The Rockstar Bar!
Next up, here's a couple more new show announcements for next month, as Marquette, Michigan hard rock quartet Spun will return to The Satisfied Frog in Sault Michigan for concerts on Friday, June 2nd & Saturday, June 3rd! After a successful Soo debut last week, the Nudge successors have already booked a return weekend at The Frog for less than a month later, which is a good sign that fans welcomed Spun just as if Nudge never left! Their hard rocking covers should provide a solid kick-off to the summer months, so keep these shows in mind for three weeks from now! Like last week, these Spun shows are 21+ affairs with no announced cover charges and likely 9:00 PM start times. Visit the official Facebook event page for more details, and stay tuned for potential updates if they roll in!
Now let's tackle previously announced hard rock concerts for this weekend, as TOMORROW NIGHT is Live705's ambitious Soo Art Rocks! event at The Canadian Nightclub! Returning to The Canadian for the first time since their March Mash-Up, this concert will marry the promoters usual concert wheelhouse with live exhibitions by local artists and photographers, who will be on hand showcasing and selling their wares, and it will be very interesting to see how this angle is received tomorrow! The music lineup is Live705's largest yet, and includes a number of local bands playing one of their events for the first time, so who all is playing? In listed order, you'll see alternative/hard rock standouts Id Iota & The Din, Live705's own punk mainstays A Dire Setback, debuting "drone/noise/psych" trio Pointless, newer alt-quartet Bizotic, death metal duo Them (in their first public concert set in over a year), Stereo North frontman Andrew Pucci's acoustic solo project, and unidentified performers from the Soo York City rap collective, likely including DJ Seith mixing the backing music.
Exhibiting artists will include former Lion Ride bassist Brenton Ellis, Aaron Knight, and photographers Josh Pace & Chandra Barnett, who have each done great concert shoots in the past. There's a little something for everyone, so don't miss out on all of this action! Admission is $10 (unless you have one of those $2 off vouchers attained from performers), this is a 19+ concert, a Josh Pace print is heavily implied to be a door prize, and the show will fittingly start at 7:05 PM. Soo Art Rocks! sounds like a great concert with a very unique pull that will be very interesting to see in action tomorrow, so check the Facebook event page for more details, and here's Id Iota live!
Finally for today, you can check out former Caveman Morrison frontman Tym Morrison as his long term arrangement at Gliss Steak & Seafood marches on for two more matinee shows TOMORROW & SATURDAY! This prolific veteran singer/guitarist continues to bring entertaining hard rock covers to the local stage each week, and this next set of shows should be no different, so if you're up for some supper-time acoustic hard rock favourites at this downtown restaurant, don't miss out on either night's action! Note that the Sault Music News Letter Facebook page advertises a Tym Morrison show tomorrow night at The Barrelhouse as well, much like his show there last week, but Tym has not publically acknowledged this apparent gig, so we won't call it here unless Tym or the venue does. At Gliss, expect 6:00 PM start times, no announced cover charges, and no age limits, so visit the official Facebook event page for more details, and here's Tym live!
That's all for today, but stay tuned for a new news post tomorrow, including extra Soo Art Rocks previews! Thanks everyone!
