Most Of This Weekend's Metal/Hard Rock Concert Previews!!

Today's post is devoted to previews of local metal & hard rock concerts for this weekend, but due to the amount of shows and the dates of them (plus to give one added emphasis), I'll save our preview of Haggith's farewell show on Saturday night for TOMORROW'S post, so watch out for it then! We'll begin our previews in Sault Ontario tonight & tomorrow, before shifting to a pair of Sault Michigan bands' full weekend sets, so read on below for our first of the weekend previews!

Two nights before their announced farewell concert, local grunge/alternative quartet Haggith will hit The Station Mall for a surprising penultimate concert set TONIGHT as part of the mall's holiday season entertainment! Originally announced to take place in front of Sears and HMV in the mall's east end, the concert will actually now take place inside of Sears at their Department 75 section for unannounced reasons, which will definitely lend a unique flair to this concert set! Haggith's entertaining originals and covers should go over well with a general audience for this special appearance, so if you're at the mall this evening (or aren't 19 or older), take a stroll down to Sears! Given the mall location, this is an ALL AGES performance with no admission cost, and their set will now take place at 6:00 PM (rather than the previously announced 5:30 timeslot.) For more details, visit the official Facebook event page! Don't miss this unique live set before it's too late, and for a preview, here's Haggith live at The Rockstar Bar in April!

Next up, Caveman Morrison frontman Tym Morrison will return to The Harp Pub & Grill TOMORROW NIGHT for his second live concert at the former Madison's Pub! Announced last week, this comes five weeks after Tym debuted at this recently renovated central pub (in the Food Basics plaza), so if The Roadhouse is too far east for you (or if you miss Tym playing more often at other venues), definitely keep tomorrow's Harp show in mind! As usual, he'll have a night full of metal and hard rock covers in store, again in his usual unplugged setting, and from what I've heard, his first Harp show went well, so I'd assume things will go well again tomorrow! A cover charge is unknown, but you must be 19 to attend, and a 10:00 PM start time is advertised. For more details, visit the official Facebook event page! Tym should entertain as is usually the case tomorrow, so head down to The Harp for his latest solo gig, and for a preview, here's Tym covering Heart's "Alone" at The Service Grill!

Moving to the Sault Michigan area to close today's post, local hard rock bands are gracing the stages at both the Sault Michigan & St. Ignace Kewadin Casinos TOMORROW & SATURDAY NIGHT, including hard rock trio Power Slug at the Soo Kewadin's Rapids Lounge! These will be Bob and the two Chris' first stops at The Rapids Lounge in over 3 months, and though they're still without an online page, their entertaining hard rock sound and grit should be welcomed back to the stage this weekend! Like usual at the Sault Kewadin's bar, there shouldn't be a cover charge, the shows should start at 9:00 PM, and you must be 19 to attend. For more details, visit the above links! Currently, these are Power Slug's last announced dates of 2013, and though I'm sure the guys have more in store for next year, concert announcements have slowed in recent months from their camp (that I can tell), so don't miss this weekend's Kewadin shows! For a preview, I'll gladly share this video of them covering Puddle of Mudd at The Bird this summer (and it's so good to say there's videos of theirs now!)

Finally, local classic/modern hard rock quintet RamWagon will return to The Northern Pines Lounge at the aforementioned St. Ignace Kewadin Casino TOMORROW & SATURDAY NIGHT themselves! Last seen at this venue two months ago, these will be both their last concerts of 2013 (barring any interim announcements) and the last of the Kewadin shows they picked up from guitarist Nathan Switzer's older band Sir Charge after their breakup earlier this year. RamWagon have an entertaining blend of covers in store for their fans this weekend, so don't miss out if you're in the St. Ignace area or missed their recent Kewadin shows! Like this weekend's Power Slug shows, you must be 21 to attend, there's no announced cover charge, and a 9:00 PM start time is very likely. Check the above links for more details, and hopefully this weekend's shows go awesomely for RamWagon! For a preview, here's RamWagon at their debut set at LemmaFest this summer!

That's all for today, but stay tuned TOMORROW for our preview of Haggith's farewell concert and more! Thanks everyone!
