 It is a long weekend this weekend. If you aren”t going to the Caglary blues festival or hitting the road, there is plenty happening this week to  keep you entertained.Floyd Sillito plays this week. Photo by Richard Amery

Edmonton psychedelic rock band the Archaics play the Slice, Wednesday Aug. 2. The Smokehouse features potty-mouthed Victoria based punk band the Gnar Gnars on Wednesday, Aug, 2 as well. There is a five dollar cover for the show, which begins early at 8 p.m.

There are laughs aplenty on the weekend as Yuk Yuks comedy returns to average Joes, Aug. 4 featuring Newfoundland comedian Lisa Baker plus Edmonton’s Nick McQuick and host Randy Webb. The laughs begin at 8:30 p.m. Admission is $15 in advance, $20 on the day of the show.

 Down the street, expect salty language and a lot of good times as Calgary/Okotoks punk/ country band Puttin on the Foil play the Slice with the 425s. There is a $10 cover for the show.

 For something a little more low key, Edmonton First Nations, folk/ blues/ R and B musician Celeigh Cardinal returns to Lethbridge, Aug. 4 to play the Owl Acoustic Lounge with her trio. She is in Twin Butte the next day.
Singer songwriter Jay Aymar returns to the Owl Acoustic Lounge, Aug. 5.

 The Slice has a big show on Aug. 5 as J Blissette kick off their tour. Edmonton musician Marlaena Moore is also on the bill with Lethbridge experimental indie rock duo Birch Barks.

 There are also some shows early in the week. Local traditional country musician Floyd Sillito is at Exhibition park on Monday morning at 11 a.m..

 And if you enjoyed Eli and the Straw Man’s show at the Slice in April, their friends Midnight Vesta make their Lethbridge debut at the Slice on Aug. 8, bringing plenty of roots, country and vocal harmonies.
