It’s been a busy year in Lethbridge, but things are looking to be even busier in the new year with concerts already announced by country star Paul Brandt plus High Valley and guests at the Enmax Centre, Jan. 28, the Trews coming up Feb. 5 at Average Joes, Dan Mangan at the Geomatic Attic Feb. 10, and John Wort Hannam starting the new year for the Lethbridge Folk Club at the Lethbridge College Cave, Jan. 12.

 There are a couple bigger concerts already scheduled for later this year. Classic metal band Judas Priest roar into the Enmax Centre with Uriah Heap, June 10. And also on June 10, Classic rock trio the Stampeders play the Yates Centre.

This week is a little slower though with Chief Mountain playing the Slice, Friday, Jan. 4 with jam band Rainbow Patrol and Face Cut. Admission is $10.

Hippodrome return to the Slice, Jan. 5 to celebrate Pardip Athwal’s birthday. There is a $10 cover charge. There will also be new art by Jason Trotter on display.

Over at the Owl Acoustic Lounge, Joshua Beebe will be performing with Leif Sturmanis Nordholm on Jan 4.

 The Owl Acoustic lou8nge has a busy Saturday beginning at 3 p.m. with a matinee performance by the Metrik Jaztet. Ghost Woman returns to play surf tinged psychedelic rock in the evening beginning around 9 p.m. Admission is by donation.

And start of the new year with loads of laughs.
