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.
