Things pick up a lot this week.
A couple big gigs are happening.
If you like the blues, don’t miss Winnipeg bluesman Big Dave McLean at the Slice, Jan. 9.
McLean is the patron saint of most of Winnipeg’s blues community and always puts on an excellent show of mostly acoustic delta blues music.
It is a good week for blues music in general.

Other highlights this week take place at the Owl Acoustic Lounge. Jay Bowcott plays the Owl Acoustic Lounge Jan. 3, while Michael Coughlan returns to the Owl Jan. 4.

Once you have had your fill of eggnog, topped off your tummy with turkey, stuffed yourself with stuffing and may even been a little fed up with family over Christmas, you are probably going to be ready to rock to some live music. Because even musicians come home for the holidays. They all come back eventually, no matter where they go.
There are a couple of great events this week.
Tod Robinson and the Gleu will be playing their typical high-energy set of piano and guitar-based pop rock at the Slice for Boxing Day. Phillip Saucer is the special guest. There is a $10 cover.
