Also at the Slice, a really cool ambient rock band called Adam’s Rib is returning to Lethbridge, April 28.
 And Lustre Creame is back at the Slice on Saturday with Big Jim and the Twins.
Across town, local pop sensation Kellianne  Litchfield will be releasing her CD at the Blarney Stone, Darryll  Düus Boues band plays Jimmy’s Pub May 1. Photo By Richard AmeryApril 30,  with special guest Alyssa McQuaid. Tickets cost $5 in advance or $7.50 at the door.
Unfortunately a big all ages gig  at VHQ, April 30 which was to feature  several local acts including the Living Luca, the Necessities, Jesse and the Dandelions and Matt Robinson has been canceled due to circumstances beyond the organizers’ control.
McQuaid has her own show at the Mocha Cabana, May 1 from 7-10 p.m..
This is the last week to hang out at Henotic  so they have a  big schedule of live acts and DJS throughout the week.
Lustre Creame and the Bohemian Cause along with Broken Host will be playing a free show on Thursday. Black Social 2 on Friday featuring DJs and live acts. And artists won’t want to miss the last Dr. Sketchy’s  anti-art school on the third floor of Henotic featuring Zombie Lady Gaga on Friday from 7-10 p.m.
Even Sunday has a lot going on. The biggest show of the day is at Henotic, where Mammoth Cave Fest 2 will be sending the beloved hangout for artists and musicians out in style with 35 bands running from noon until midnight.
The Darryl Düus Blues band has a gig at Jimmy’s Pub on the south side next to Future Shop, May 1 as well. He tore up the casino last week and always puts on a great show.
 The other special show takes place at the Folk Club’s Wolf’s Den,  May 1 where Two Spirit Sage will be performing with local acoustic bluesman Leon Barr and special guests Maura and  Gary Bourdon from Medicine Hat.
 The handful of people at the folk club’s open mic on Friday got a taste of the show as Gary Bourdon  was one of several performers.
 He had a great tenor voice and told stories before playing original music influenced by a variety of  subjects including his children.
Rap fans will want to be at  the Blarney Stone on Monday, May 3 where  The Living Legends will be performing as well as Rich Kidd who is MC and producer for  Drake, Sukrates and K-os. Tickets are $10.
There are some very cool open  mics beginning tonight  at the Slice where Jon Martin will be hosting . There is no open mic Wednesday at Henotic, as Vancouver based roots band/ poets, the Fugitives are performing. Instead. There will be a massive final jam session  on Saturday beginning at 4 p.m. hosted by the Necessities. Thursday has open mics at Beaches Pub and  The Good Earth Coffee House.
