 They will be playing with Lethbridge rock band Toques and Beards. The show begins at 9 p.m.

Nov. 17 will be a busy night. The big show of the week is Matthew Good, who returns to Lethbridge, Nov. 17 to play the Stone with Daniel Wesley.
 If you can’t make it to that, the Geomatic Attic has a great show and for a great cause. Allison Russell and Awna Texiera of Po’ Girl will be playing a fundraiser for environmental group Greensence, who will be making a brief presentation followed by the music. Tickets are $20. The show begins at 8 p.m. at  the Geomatic Attic.

 If you missed Hunger Hush at the Owl this week, they will be back to play the Slice, Nov. 18 with Matt Blais,  the Utilities and Jesse Northey.

It is a good week for quirky, jazz tinged country. Along the same lines at Ball Gag N’ Chain Gang   and Blackberry Wood, who played a wicked show this past week, Winnipeg’s the F-Holes bring their unique brand of quirky, horn powered mayhem to the Slice on Saturday, Nov. 19.
 On the other hand for a more gritty, old school country sound, Rancho Deluxe will be playing an unplugged set at the Owl Acoustic Lounge, Nov. 19.

 And last , but not least, Vancouver indie-rockers Hey Ocean is back in the city to play the Slice, Nov. 20 to play the Slice with Media Res and The Belle Game.
Tickets for that show cost $25
