February ends with a whole lot of rock. If you like classic rock, Average Joe’s is the place to go as Jerry “Mama Let Him Play” Doucette returns to play his hits and a whole lot of blues, Feb. 21.
The Montreal-born Doucette moved to Vancouver in 1972, where he hooked up with a band called the Seeds of Time, who would prove to be the nucleus of another popular Canadian rock band — Prism (who actually come to Average Joe’s Feb. 27). Dated Delay is also on the bill. The show begins at 9 p.m. Tickets cost $15. Local classic rock cover band the Chevelles play the SoundGarden, Feb. 21. The Ruby Plumes and Theodore Cashmere will add a touch of punk to the Owl Acoustic Lounge, Feb. 1 as well.

It’s a pretty sweet week to hear New Brunswick talent in Lethbridge. Two stripped-down, blues-flavoured shows happen this week.
Ross Neilsen plays a solo show at the Owl Acoustic Lounge, Feb. 7. He is touring on two CDs, but will focus on material from “The Shack Up Sessions” which he released in 2012. There is no cover for the show, which begins at approximately 9 p.m.
Also from New Brunswick, Matt Andersen plays a show for the Geomatic Attic at Southminster United Church, Feb. 8. His latest CD “Weightless” which combines blues with a lot of R and B and soul, is hot off the presses.
Tickets are $20 for that show, which also features David Myles.
