 If you like your rock with a little bit of folk, Elliott Brood returns to the Slice, Oct. 4. Tickets are $20. If you missed them Sept. 19, you won’t want to miss them again as they always put on an intense and enjoyable show.

 If you like your rock with a lot of volume, local bands Lustre Creame, the Mormon Girls and the Ruby Plumes play the Slice, Oct. 5. Admission is $10
 If you like your rock with a little bit of metal, the Cancer Bats will tear up Average Joes, Oct. 5 with their Black Sabbath playing alter ego Bat Sabbath. Tickets are $20.
 If you like your rock with a touch of  the ’90s., check out Crash Karma also at Average Joes with One Bad Son, Oct. 6. Admission is also $20.
The other big metal show is a free show at Bo Diddly’s with Granite Force, Last Caskett and Unzipped, Oct. 4.

 This is also a good week for those with mellower tastes.
 The Lethbridge Folk Club brings in folk/ world/ reggae/ Celtic band Dr. Zoo into the Moose Hall, Oct. 5. Admission is $20 for members $25 for non-members. The show begins at 8 p.m. sharp.

 And if you like string band and bluegrass music, don’t miss Virginia band the Steel Wheels who visit  the Geomatic Attic, Oct. 4. Tickets are $32.50. The Geomatic Attic also has gospel flavoured folk group the Sojourners in on Oct. 6. Tickets are $32.50 as well.
The Owl Acoustic Lounge has a good blues/ folk/ pop rock show with Edmonton’s Picture the Ocean featuring Jesse Dee and Jacquie B, who play a free show, Oct. 5.

For something a little more alternative, the Slice features piano powered art rock quartet the Boreal Sons on Monday, Oct. 7.
 And as always there are plenty of open mics and local performers performing throughout the week all over the city.
