There are a couple excellent shows this week for all tastes.
The “Bad Boys of the Blues” Doc MacLean and Big Dave McLean are back at the Slice, Oct. 6. They play well off each other, taking turns on stage trading acoustic blues classics and original material, tell stories and crack jokes  making a perfect show for anybody who enjoys real, authentic acoustic blues.

If your tastes lean more towards exotic pop music, then Danny Michel is the man to hear.
 The Juno Award winning Canadian musician is looking forward to returning to Lethbridge. He is looking forward to beginning his latest tour, which brings him to the Slice, Oct. 5 with Samantha Savage Smith. Tickets for the Oct. 5 show cost $20.

 And if you missed local country/ rock band Rancho Deluxe’s set at Arts Days on the weekend, catch them at the Slice, Oct. 8 with Ali Free.

 If you like the Trailer Park Boys TV show, you should be at Average Joes for Randy and Mr. Lahey, Oct. 6.

You might know actor John Dunsworth as playing drunken buffoon Jim Lahey, but you might be surprised John Dunsworth the actor, actually doesn’t drink  - at least not much. Expect a lot of audience participation and interaction as they’ll bring people on stage to make fun of them and to make fun of as well as skits

They will be coming to Average Joes, Oct. 6.
Tickets cost $20 in advance for the show, which begins at 8 p.m.
