Super shows coming up

There are plenty of fantastic performances happening this week, though not quite as many as last week. It begins tonight (June 8) with the return of  west coast blues band Current Swell who stop by the Slice with Australian bluesmen Rogerthat.
Some other highlights will be Hippodrome at the Lethbridge Casino, June 12-13. Wide Mouth Mason will be at the Roadhouse, June 13 and Said the Whale returns to the Slice June 12 with Zola.
 Lethbridge favourites, Amy Bronson is back from Guelph for the summer. Catch her first show back, June 11 at Henotic.
And if you like bluegrass, check out Elena Yeung  who will be playing with east coast musician Neil Conway. Treeline, who put on a fantastic show at the Front Row Pub, Saturday with Shaela Miller and the Record Holder, are hosting  an open mic at the Slice, June 9.
Henotic also has an open mic on Wednesday, June 10. Also this week, the Lethbridge Folk Club has their open mic, on Friday, June 12.
A couple big shows were announced this week.  
Fred Eaglesmith and his band have been booked for the Slice for July 9. And in a couple of weeks, ’90s rockers Default will be hitting the Blarney Stone on June 26.
And, in case you missed the announcement, Edmonton punk veterans, SNFU will be storming Bully’s June 21. I saw them back in the day at the University of Lethbridge and they put on one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. Tickets cost $15 and are available through Amp All Productions (403) 327-7362. So far, organizer Glen Davidson from Amp All said a couple hundred tickets have been sold for SNFU already for the approximately 800 seats. SNFU features original singer Chi Pig.

Looking ahead, Bedouin Soundclash has been booked to play the Blarney Stone, Aug. 10 .
