This is the week to rock in all forms as there are rock shows aplenty this week.
If you like your rock with a little bit of folk, Elliott Brood returns to the Slice, Oct. 4. Tickets are $20. If you missed them Sept. 19, you won’t want to miss them again as they always put on an intense and enjoyable show.
If you like your rock with a lot of volume, local bands Lustre Creame, the Mormon Girls and the Ruby Plumes play the Slice, Oct. 5. Admission is $10.
If you like your rock with a little bit of metal, the Cancer Bats will tear up Average Joe’s, Oct. 5, with their Black Sabbath-playing alter ego Bat Sabbath. Tickets are $20.

Perhaps because Arts Days runs throughout the week, or maybe it is just a coincidence, there is everything from rap to roots music this week plus metal and mainstream country on tap this week.
Some of the highlights include a sold-out show at Average Joe’s, Sept. 28 by up-and-coming country sensation Tim Hicks, who is touring hot on the heels of his hit album Throwdown. Also in the country vein, the Coal Creek Boys play Casino Lethbridge Friday and Saturday.

Things are back in full swing in Lethbridge with a plethora of great shows coming up.
The biggest event of the week is CKXU‘s third annual record festival, Love and Records, Sept. 14 in Galt Gardens.
It is bigger and better than the last two years with a heap of new vendors and, even better, lots of live music. They have a stellar lineup including two stages featuring performances by Five Alarm Funk, Black Mastiff, Gold, former Lethbridgians Alyssa McQuaid and Andrew Scott and local performers Matthew Robinson, Stars from Streetlights, the Yeah Dads, Bent 8, the Hibiyaki drummers and the Lethbridge Girls Rock Camp.

It has been a terrible week for Lethbridge’s music community. Two stalwart pillars of the community have passed away this week way too young.
James Nishima, best known as DJ Booda passed away suddenly Aug. 28. He will be missed by a lot of people. He inspired numerous local performers and basically kickstarted Lethbridge’s hip hop scene. In addition to being a fantastic DJ, he was not afraid to dream. He brought in a variety of high-profile acts from well-known rappers like Riff Raff, Deezuz, Madchild, Swollen Members, Moka Only, Kyprios and Snoop Dogg, just to name a few. He also brought in up-and-coming rockers like Dragonette and well-known names like 54-40, Matthew Good, Finger Eleven and Gob. In doing so, he brought a taste of the big-city excitement to our small town. And by doing so, thumbed his nose at those who would denigrate Lethbridge as Deathbridge.
