Jon is beginning  his  doctorate at Stanford on a full scholarship while Mike leaves shortly after this show to go to McGill in Montreal with his girlfriend.

 It is sure to be a fantastic show as Jesse and the Dandelions are also performing.
 This is an excellent week for local music, with local country/pop musician Alyssa McQuaid performing at the Front Row Pub, Aug. 13-14 and James Oldenburg at the Mocha Cabana, Aug. 13-14 as well.

Plus local country duo Tom and Curt play Casino Lethbridge this weekend.
Progressive rock trio Lustre Creame have a Sunday night show at the Slice with  Toronto progressive metal band the  Isosceles Project.

The Mocha Cabana has a special show this week with Sean Ashby, who plays guitar for the likes of Sarah McLachlan and Ginger, Thursday, Aug. 12.
Ashby, who has appeared on numerous  Diamond and Platinum selling CDs as well as has played  the Grammy Awards, the Tonight Show, David Letterman and Saturday Night Live, is touring in support of his second solo CD, ‘24 Hours of Daylight.’ The show begins at 8:30 p.m.

As always, there are open mic left right and centre , including a new Sunday open mic at Cudos Lounge plus several of them on Thursday at Coyote Joes, the Owl  Acoustic Lounge and the Good Earth Coffee House.
 The Lethbridge Folk Club has their open mic on Friday at the Wolf’s Den.
 The Slice has a couple roots acts this week including  Willy Blizzard, Aug. 12, who  sound like a cross between Bruce Cockburn, Murray McLachlan, and Gordon Lightfoot with steel guitars. On Saturday, female powered  B.C roots band Johnnie 99 are visiting the Slice.
