LOCAL CONCERT ALERTS (The 3 Day Millionaires & Tym Morrison), Plus Faps Concert Videos!!

Happy Halloween, everyone! Before we begin this post, I wanted to acknowledge that Sault Michigan hard rock quartet Project 906 played a short notice Halloween concert at The Inn Gastropub & Smokehouse in Paradise on Saturday night, but as Paradise is just past our coverage range of one hour from the Soo, I didn't rush it into a post. Hopefully their Paradise debut went well though, you don't hear of many shows out there! Now, here's some new videos and some LOCAL CONCERT ALERTS, one on SHORT NOTICE!

Sault Ontario hard rock solo singer/guitarist Tym Morrison will return to Mark's Breakfast Plus at the Market Mall for a special mid-week matinee concert TOMORROW, with further gigs planned there on from Monday, November 13th through Wednesday the 15th! Apologies for the short notice on TOMORROW'S show, Tym only confirmed it via it's Facebook event page on Friday, while the mid-month triple run of gigs are currently advertised on SooToday's events calendar. Continuing his late-year increase of shows at the former Kackleberry's location at the west end mall, these new shows mean that Tym will have played three out of four Wednesdays at Mark's dating back to last week, while the shows in a couple of weeks mark his first Monday and Tuesday nighters there since last month. I don't know if a Gliss-esque weekly regular arrangement could be in the works, but don't miss Tym's new west end gigs at Mark's TOMORROW and/or in a couple of weeks!

And yes, we will touch on this month's string of Gliss Steak & Seafood shows in our weekend concert previews, likely coming Thursday morning. As usual for Tym's shows at Mark's, expect no age limit or cover charge for these 6:00 PM events taking place TOMORROW and from the 13th to 15th, but remember that this is a restaurant first. Check the above links for more details, and here's Tym live!

Next up, here's some shows with more advance notice, starting with a new show from local classic/hard rock cover quartet The 3 Day Millionaires, who will return to The Rockstar Bar for one night only on November 11th (one week from Saturday!) Apologies for the delay in this show making the site, it was announced earlier this month, but fell through the cracks. This special concert will see the guys perform as musical entertainment at a fundraiser event for the Community First Wild, an Atom Major A hockey team in the Soo Pee Wee Hockey League. Solid cause, it's always a good idea to support kids in their hockey careers and dreams, and hopefully this event is a big boost for the team as they continue their regular season! Admission is $10 for the fundraiser, which has an advertised 9:00 PM start time, and while I know Atom Major A players are kids, I would expect this is still a 19+ event. Visit the official Facebook event page for more details, and don't miss The 3 Day Millionares in action next weekend! 

We'll close today with some new videos from a surprising source, namely AlgomA guitarist Boyd Rendell's Instagram page! While largely a personal use page, Boyd did share five videos there from last week's Faps concert at The New American Pub that he promoted with Six, Two, Oh., and while Instagram videos are limited to a minute or less, at least these give us a look at that show! Boyd filmed all three bands that night, including one video of new local acoustic solo project Slumshine (led by former Detroit frontman Brent Ellis) playing what appears to be an original song that may be named "Carry On". While a departure from Brent's past electric work as a singer and bassist, this has a good tone to it, and fans of folksier solo rock should enjoy what he has on offer, though this is admittedly a small sample! Three of Boyd's videos are of The Faps in action (including these videos linked here and here), so what should you know from the Saskatoon punk duo's set?

While these are also short samples, you get a good sense of The Faps' chaotic punk onslaught that suits their two-man lineup well, even with minimal clothing! Yes, both have something on in those other two clips, but just in case, I embedded the one below when a little more was being worn. Also, does the song below sound a little like "Guerrilla Radio" to anyone else? Check out Boyd's Faps videos above & below!

Finally, here's Boyd's video of local extreme/death metal quartet Winkstinger from their opening set at The New A last week! Capturing another minute of brutal original action from the reunited band, this video is the only one of Boyd's from this show to get filters put it on it, turning it black and white with a little blurrier visuals. Not sure why, but the guys sound good, and Josh remains a firecracker on vocals, so give their new video from last week a look also, and kudos to Boyd for filming these!

That's all for today, but stay tuned for weekend concert previews next, in all likelihood! Thanks everyone!
