Tickets for Bob Dylan cost $39.50, $62.50 and 88 $88.50. The show begins at 8 p.m.

Vancouver based musician Marq DeSouza can’t wait to come back home for a gig at the Owl Acoustic Lounge, Aug. 10. He has released five CDs of original folk tinged rock music beginning with his debut in 1999, which he re-released in 2009, when he also released his most recent CD “… and All His Boyish Charms. Two of the CDs were with rock band Solarbaby.
There is no cover for the show, which begins at 9 p.m.

Detroit born, Nova Scotia based bluesman Morgan Davis returns to Lethbridge, Aug. 11 to play  the Owl Acoustic Lounge.

 There is no cover for the show, which begins at 9 p.m. The Delta bluesman is playing a solo show of catchy songs  and some fine finger-picking.
There are also a couple excellent shows at the Slice, beginning with a  big, loud metal show, Aug. 8 featuring Abriosis, Reborn Extinction and the Avulsion.

For something a little more laid back, Victoria quartet Handsome Distraction and Calgary indie-rock band Deluge play the Slice. Aug. 11. There is a $10 cover for the show.

 Local indie rock band  the Record Holder play a rare local show at the Slice, Aug. 10. Brenna Lowrie will be opening.
And, even better, Cuff the Duke return to play their brand of country tinged indie rock at the Slice on Monday, Aug. 13.

 And there is no open mic at the Slice tonight, instead, Wooden Sky will be performing their unique brand of folk music. They released their fifth recording “Every Child a Daughter, Every Moon a Sun,” in February. The Toronto based roots/ folk band haven’ t played Lethbridge in about two years. There is a $10 cover for the show.
