The summer months are now on, so let's begin June with another weekend of concert previews! To spread things out, especially given it's Sunday placement, we'll preview that night's Ruptured Birth concert in our next news post, which could come as early as tomorrow night, so don't worry, it's coming! Now, let's begin this weekend's previews with LOCAL CONCERT ALERTS, four of which being of the SHORT NOTICE variety!
Tym Morrison's slate of June solo concerts to our links, including Gliss Steak & Seafood matinees on each Friday & Saturday this month (including TOMORROW & SATURDAY), as well as a bonus nighttime return to The Roadhouse Bar & Grill TOMORROW NIGHT! Apologies for the short notice on this weekend's shows, they were only announced via their official Facebook event pages (linked here & here) on Sunday, and we wait for new monthly confirmations on Gliss shows before listing them anyway. As such, you can add weekly evening gigs at The Quality Inn's house restaurant for June 9th-10th, 16th-17th, 23rd-34th, and June 30th & July 1st to our calendar (alongside TOMORROW & SATURDAY), in what may be Tym's last month of double weekly bookings before adding Thursday nighters again, as has been the case the past couple of years, though we await confirmation.
Of course, these also include Tym's return to The Roadhouse on Trunk Road for the first time in four weeks, and fans of his nighttime gigs at a more typical venue will want to take notice TOMORROW NIGHT! For what it's worth, the event page for the Gliss shows was actually started through Tym's old band Caveman Morrison's Facebook group, but whether you want to read into that or not, the shows are definitely Tym solo. None of this month's shows have announced cover charges, and while the Gliss shows are at 6:00 PM with no announced age limit, TOMORROW'S Road House gig is at 10:00 PM and is 19+. Check the above links for more details, and here's Tym live!
Next up, local classic/hard rock cover quartet The 3 Day Millionaires will return to The Rockstar Bar for one night only THIS SATURDAY NIGHT! Apologies again for the short notice, this show was only announced via the official Facebook event page yesterday. Continuing their steady stream of roughly monthly gigs upstairs at The Algonquin Hotel, SATURDAY'S show will be The Millionaires' first there or anywhere in three weeks, and fans of their mixture of hard rocking covers should be right at home to kick off the summer months with them this weekend! Note that this is a one night only show, as The 3 Day Millionaires typically don't do double weekend bookings for one reason or another, though we can't confirm who's playing at The Rockstar Bar tomorrow at press time. SATURDAY NIGHT's show has a 19+ age limit, 10:30 PM start time, and no announced cover charge. Check the above links for more details, and here's The 3 Day Millionaires live!
Spun to The Satisfied Frog in Sault Michigan TOMORROW & SATURDAY NIGHT! Just under a month removed from their well received local debuts at The Frog, the Nudge successors are already back for another weekend full of high impact hard rock covers, so if you missed them last month or can't get enough, keep an eye out for Spun's second local concert weekend over the next two nights! No word yet though on their next Soo gigs, but we will keep you posted. As was the case last month, these shows have 21+ age limits, no announced cover charges, and 9:00 PM start times. Visit the official Facebook event page for more details, and here's Spun live!
Finally for today, Sault Michigan hard rock quartet 415E will return to The Northern Pines Lounge at the Kewadin Shores Casino in St. Ignace for shows TOMORROW & SATURDAY NIGHT! Unusually playing for the second weekend in as many weeks (fresh off of Memorial Day weekend gigs in the Soo), 415E should be up to their usual tricks with another pair of high impact nights of covers, so don't miss Chris, the Hubbards, and Mitch over the coming days! In their Facebook page's post advertising these concerts, the band noted that this will "be the last time we play in St. Ignace for a while", a statement mirroring that of fellow locals Highway 63's indefinite leave from the Soo Kewadin branch. However, 415E don't have any other shows publically listed for even The Rapids Lounge in the rest of 2017, so are they going on a full hiatus, or are they playing elsewhere soon? If we get confirmation, we'll let you know! In any event, expect 9:00 PM start times, no cover, and 21+ age limits this weekend. See above for more details, and here's 415E live!
That's all for today, but stay tuned for our Ruptured Birth preview and more on the site soon, plus this month's "Where Are The New Albums?" post tomorrow! Thanks everyone!
