Call it a South Country Fair hangover, but this week is very slow. Though, as always, there are some highlights. Doug and the Slugs play Lethbridge this week. Photo by Richard Amery
 For a study in contrasts check out Wednesday night,

  The Moose hall hosts a huge metal show, July 24 featuring Omega Crom, Naraka and Iron Kingdom. There is a $15 cover at the door or $10 in advance. While over at the Slice, July 24, it is all about hip hop music.
