 There are a couple big shows on March 22 including an international open mic at the Cave at Lethbridge College. Plus John Wort Hannam and Lila Gilday will be performing at the Slice. To get in the summer spirit in the Spring, Average Joes hosts Ocean Party 4 featuring live music from Penny Fortune, Australia guitarist Kim Churchill and Daniel Wesley. Tickets for the show, which cost $15 in advance, starts at 8 p.m.
 It is also a big weekend with lots of shows happening.
Stars From Streetlights, Matt Robinson and Jordan Ostrom will be having a CD release party on March 23.

 There are several big shows happening on March 24, not the least of which will be a not to be missed show from Edmonton blues band the Boogie Patrol, who play the Slice. There will be a $10 cover for it.  
 Buckman Coe promised an upbeat and uplifting show when he plays the Owl Acoustic Lounge, March 24 in support of his  CD ‘By The Mountains Feet.”
Kelowna, B.C. based musicians Andrew and Zachari Smith make their Lethbridge Folk Cub debut at the Wolf’s Den, March 24.  The father and son duo will be playing a set of contemporary alternative folk music.


 If you like pop punk music, there is an all ages show at the Lethbridge Legion with Punkalotamus, March 24  featuring Sophomore Jakes, Cold Gold, Evidence By Design and the Maddigans.
The all ages show starts at 7 p.m.  There is a $15 cover or $10 with two non-perishable items for the Lethbridge Food Bank.
Admission is $20 for members, $25 for non members. The show begins at 8 p.m with Geoff Noble opening.

And if you are in the mood for something a little unusual, check out the return of Winnipeg based jazz, rock, theatrical sextet Flying Fox and the Hunter Gatherers. If you were among  the handful of people at the Tongue N Groove last summer for an unusual show full of horns and monsters and horny monsters from Winnipeg’s Flying Fox and the Hunter Gatherers, you can expect more of the same when they return to Lethbridge to play the Slice, March 25.
The show begins at 8 p.m.
