Lots of music this week

South Country Fair is over, but music in Lethbridge is just getting started this week.Red Ram returns to Lethbridge, July 24. Photo by gravy,
Some of this week’s highlights are return visits from the Arbitraries, July 21 as well as Hippodrome at the Slice, July 23. Red Ram also returns to the Slice the next night, July 24 with the New Weather Machine.

 But a couple of the best shows are early the next week beginning with the United Steelworkers of Montreal, who play the Slice, July 26.

Said the Whale is the next day, July 27, when they will be playing a gig at the Slice with We Are The City and Aidan Knight.

Unfortunately the 1010 Pub is no longer  holding Monday open mics, fortunately  the Owl Acoustic Lounge’s Monday open mic is picking up steam. I even got up on stage there for the first time. I’ve been taking a break from playing live, thanks to numerous other projects happening simultaneously. It is a fun open mic, and surprisingly  a lot of people play at it who I have never seen before in addition to a couple familiar faces like Tyson Wiebe and Daylan Delaney.
 It’s a good week for open mics. Most local clubs  are holding their open stages on Thursdays including  Coyote Joes,  the Good Earth Coffee House and Beaches Pub and Grill plus there is an open jam at the Owl.
Toques  and Beards host  the open mic at the slice tonight and  Ben Brown hosts his open mic at the Bar One Lounge at the Sandman Inn.
The Lethbridge Folk Club winds up the week with their open mic on Friday at the Wolf’s Den.
In other news, the Blarney Stone is “closed for renovation until July 29” so next week’s Ill Scarlett show has been relocated to Scores North, July 30. Tickets are $30. An alternate venue is being found for the Cancer Bats’ Aug. 9 show.
