Street Wheelers Weekend features everything from classic rock to rap

E-mail Print PDF

There is a little something for everybody this week — folk, metal, rap and even some blues.
But Street Wheelers weekend means there will be a whole lot of classic rock to be the soundtrack for roaring engines, whirring wheels and belching exhaust pipes.

 Backstreet South brings in Dated Delay on Friday, July 13 to rock the house. They will have a beer garden all weekend opening at 3 p.m. Billie Vegas will rock it on Saturday.

 The 1010 Pub will also have an outdoor beer garden for Street Wheelers weekend. Who’s Yer Daddy will be performing both July 13 and July 14.

  The Owl Acoustic Lounge opens a new car themed art show on July 13. Tanyss Nixxi will be performing  surrounded by canvasses of all of your favourite cars like the DeLorean from the hit ’80s movies  “Back to The Future” as well as the General Lee and, of course, The Batmobile. There is no cover.

 On the other hand, the Slice puts on a rap show on July 13 with Vancouver rapper Sonreal, who has just released his new Cd “The Words I Said Mixtape,” featuring the hit singles “Alone, “Halle Berry” and many others. Tickets are $10 at the door. Aerosubtle and Pzeudo will also be performing.

It is also a great week for roots music with Scott Nolan returning to the Slice, July 14 and Jack Marks playing  July 12. One of my favourite blues rockers Wild T and the Spirit return to  the Slice, July 15 for a psychedelic and high octane night of blues and blues rock music and maybe even some Jimi Hendrix.

 Over at the Owl Acoustic Lounge Planet Telex rock the roof off it, July 14.

 And for something a little mellower, James Oldenburg plays the Mocha Cabana, July 13 and 14.

 Monday, July 16 is a study in contrasts.
If you live and die for unearthly, hellish bellows and growls inspired by horror writer H.P. Lovecraft, you will love Vancouver death metal band Auroch who return to Lethbridge, July 16 with  Celestial Coffin and Psycomantium.
The band Auroch began as a thrash metal band, but they evolved into a death metal band and bonded over the works of  horror writer HP Lovecraft.
They play the Slice, July 16 with Psycomantium and Celestial Coffin.
For something decidedly more laid back and layered, Calgary’s Locomotive Ghost play the Owl Acoustic Lounge July 16 with the Collective West.
The show is scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. There will be no cover.
 Tonight Billy Manzik  hosts the open mic at the Slice.
