 There are three top notch roots/ indie rock shows happening on May 30.
Lethbridge alt country singer songwriter Leeroy Stagger and his band stop by the Geomatic Attic in support of their new CD “Dream It All Away.” Their show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $27.50. Ryland Moranz opens the show.

If you want to move with folk rock groove, Fernie based stoke folk band Shred Kelly return to Lethbridge to play Studio 54 with the Silkstones. They are touring in support of their latest CD “Sing To the Night.” The show begins at 9 p.m. Tickets cost $20.

 The other folk influenced show comes courtesy of Calgary's Locomotive Ghost, who return to the Owl Acoustic Lounge, May 30 with new members and new music. There is no cover for the show.

If you want to bang your head, be at the Slice, May 30 where there will be a night of local metal featuring Killage, Caste of Shadows and Trismegistus.

There is plenty of rock and roll happening early in the week too. Former Lethbridgian Joel Butler’s band Nervous Talk play the Slice, May 28 with Calgary power pop band the Mandates and Lethbridge garage rock band the Yeah Dads. The show begins at 9 p.m.

 There is a big punk show at Inferno, May 29 featuring the return of Calgary beer core hardcore rockers Citizen Rage plus fellow Calgary shred punks the Reckless Heroes and Regina oi street punk band Bats Out. Tickets are $10. The show begins at 8 p.m.

 On a slightly mellower plane, Ontario roots/folk and Americana songwriter Trevor Alguire returns to the Owl Acoustic Lounge, May 29.

If you think you’re funny, then prove it at the Owl Acoustic Lounge’s comedy open mic on Wednesday, May 27.

Casino Lethbridge has some interesting events as well. Strangling Wolf plays some country music  on May 29. The queens will be out at the Casino on May 30 as Lethbridge Pridefest features a DIVA show with eight fabulous glittering queens performing. Tickets for that show are sold out.
