For our first news post of August 2018, we're mostly diving into weekend concert previews, including a SHORT NOTICE LOCAL CONCERT ALERT, but we also have a new solo video to check out as well. Here's what you should know!
The Wyld Stallyns will return to Room 21 for one night only TOMORROW NIGHT as part of... Fish Bowl Friday?! Apologies for the short notice, this show was only announced via it's official Facebook event page on Tuesday. After taking a month and a half off from public concerts, the Elements side project will return to the Low & Slow sister bar for another night of unplugged and fan-involved action TOMORROW, so whether you're a fan or thinking about joining in, you know where to be tomorrow! As noted above, this is not Finger Food Friday, and it's too late in the year to be a Fishbowl Festival reference, so what's the theme referencing? While the venue didn't elaborate on Facebook, other websites imply that drinks will be served in fishbowls as a special offer, so if drink specials and large receptacles are a drawing card, keep that angle in mind for tomorrow night!
As usual for The Wyld Stallyns' Room 21 shows, TOMORROW'S concert has a 19+ age limit, no announced cover charge, and a 10:00 PM start time. Visit the above links for more details, and for a preview, here they are live!
Project 906's trip to nearby Pickford TOMORROW NIGHT when they play at that town's annual Hay Days festival! As noted in the official program, 906 will be the featured musical attraction the outdoor stage on Main Street tomorrow at 7:30 PM, preceding a dance party featuring music mixed by Dance Commander DJ. There's lots of family entertainment going down at Hay Days tomorrow, as well as today, Saturday, and even some closing events on Sunday, so be sure to visit the above links for more on the non-musical events there and elsewhere! This year's Hay Days theme is actually "Making Music", and there are some more concerts going down on other days, notably including Thieves In The Night at The Sundown Lounge on Saturday. Private gigs aside, this will be Project 906's first public concert set since their Strongs trip a couple of weeks ago.
I can't confirm the other "local talent" teased for tomorrow's outdoor concert action, but Project 906's fan favourite hard rocking covers should be a boon for attending Hay Days fans, so don't miss out on the action in Pickford! This is a FREE & ALL AGES concert tomorrow evening, so visit the above links for more details, and here's Project 906 live!
Lastly for known hard rock/punk concerts this weekend, we'll head back to Sault Ontario for the local debut of Montreal ska/jazz punk quartet The Costanzas, who will headline at The Rockstar Bar THIS SATURDAY NIGHT! Already making waves with their edgy but fun blend of sub-genres, The Costanzas' rocking punk originals should get a solid audience at The Rockstar Bar on Saturday, so give them a listen in advance of this one! Local punk trio Stegadeth will play their first concert set since their Spiderfest road trip on Saturday, while the second opener was quietly confirmed late last month, namely extreme/death metal quartet Winkstinger, who will be making their first live concert appearance of 2018, in what could be a preview of their Oh!No festival set in September. Great to see them back at last! This concert is brought to you by Six, Two, Oh., in apparent association with The Killennials, a mysterious new agency or company that we await further information on.
This stop on The Costanzas' Canadian tour has a $5 cover charge, a 9:00 PM start time, and a 19+ age limit in effect. Punk fans would be well served to check out this concert, especially with a dash of metal for good measure, so visit the Facebook event page for more, and here's The Costanzas live!
Finally, here's a new video from prolific local hard rock musician Tym Morrison's new YouTube channel! Not sure why he'd launch a new one (or name it after his defunct band Caveman Morrison), but Tym's first video there is actually of an instrumental techno song named "Advanced Dance". This is definitely against his usual type, but as he noted in the description, "I'm not just a guitar shredder." The song is well programmed, and it's an interesting change of pace, so give it a listen bellow! Note that Tym has no advertised solo shows this weekend, but his personal Facebook page had mentioned a recent private gig, plus fill-ins with The Dorian Gray Band.
That's all for today, but stay tuned for a new news post tomorrow morning! Thanks everyone!
