There are several great shows happening this week.
  Open mics are going to be a highlight this week beginning tonight with Halifax area rocking blues trio the Carson Downey Band  who are hosting the blues jam, March 9, as well as per a full show on March 10. They are not to be missed by anybody considering themselves fans of energetic blues rock and face melting guitar. Also tonight, the Lethbridge Writer’s Group has their second meeting at 7 p.m. at Humpty’s downtown.Stephen Fearing plays the Geomattic Attic this week. Photo Submitted

An outstanding show is at the Geomatic Attic the next day. Juno award winner and one third of Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, Stephen Fearing plays Geomatic Attic, March 10. Andy White is also on the bill. The show starts at 8 p.m. Also on Wednesday, Karen Romolliwa hosts Henotic’s open mic. Jazz/blues duo Twilight Hotel are also back in Lethbridge, March 11 to play the Slice. Their shows usually sell out.

Rapper Kyprios is also back in Lethbridge for a March 13  show at the Blarney Stone, which is one of several big shows on March 13.
 Local alternative country singer Shaela Miller’s CD release party at the Bill Kergan Centre is a sure highlight of the week. She will be premiering her hew CD ‘Love is Brave.’

Another excellent rock show is Vancouver’s the Manvils who are back to tear apart the Slice, March 12.
