Things settle down after crazy couple of weeks

E-mail Print PDF

With the Windy City Tattoo Weekend and Love and Records, Freshfest and the Lethbridge Music Festival all happening Papa King and Scott Mezei play Sept. 20. Photo by Richard Ameryover the past couple weeks, are you as burned out as I am on live music and big events? Of course not. You can never have too much live music.

 Fortunately this week features a lot of really cool, laid back shows.
Blues lovers will not want to miss Edmonton born Vancouver based blues harpist Harpdog Brown. He comes to the Slice to sing the blues on Sept. 18. There is a $10 cover for the show.
 For something a little more intimate, Kingston songwriter Tom Savage makes a long awaited return to the Slice on Sept. 17.

It has been a couple of years since he rocked the house with his big, loud, dirty alt country/ rock trio, but this time he is playing a more intimate acoustic solo set in support of his new album “History of a Common Man.” The Nix Dicksons’ Tanner James also returns to Lethbridge this week, to play the Slice on Sept. 19.

Over at the Owl Acoustic Lounge, local bluesman Papa King will be playing with Scott Mezei, Sept. 20.


The night before, on Sept. 19, Toronto based folk rock band Young Running play the Owl Acoustic Lounge in support of their new album.

The Owl also has a Monday show on Sept. 22 featuring Tara Holloway and Ambre McLean.
 Kalle Mattson also returns to Lethbridge to play the Slice on Monday as well. There is a  $10 cover for that show.

 But,  get ready to rock again by the end of the week as Lock N’ Load plays Jimmy’s Pub and Brasserie, Sept. 20.
And rock again early in the week with a big, loud rock show at Average Joes, Sept. 23 featuring Australia's AC DC influenced hard rock band Airbourne who have numerous modern rock hits  including “No Way But the Hard Way,” “Too Much, Too Young, Too Fast‚” to name a few.

Kingston blue collar rockers The Glorious Sons are also on the bill. They have scored a couple recent hits including “Mama” “White Noise” and “Heavy,”  their most recent single off their album “Union.”
Flash Lightnin, who were touring with ZZ Top earlier this year are also on the bill. Tickets cost $25 for the show, which begins at 8:30 p.m.
