Farewell to Freeway tour stops in city
Farewell to Freeway makes a quick pit stop in Red Deer this week during its cross-Canada All or Nothing Tour.
The hardcore metal group from Guelph, Ont., plans to crank up the decibel level to somewhere near a Formula-1 car’s thunderous rumble on Thursday night at The Vat.
The four-man group, led by singer/guitarist Chris Lambert, is best known for Portrait and The Desperate Age, and is getting attention for the new screaming single Liquor, I Don’t Even Know ’Er, off Farewell to Freeway’s latest album, Filthy Habits.
For more concert information, call The Vat at 403-346-5636.
RDC alumni performing free concert
Two Red Deer College music alumni are kicking off their coast-to-coast North American tour with a free afternoon concert in Red Deer.
Michelle Joly and Carrie Sadler both graduated from the college’s music program in 2001.
They are teaming up to tour starting June 1 in support of Joly’s debut solo album, You’re Not Alone, which is described as a soulful, jazzy, folk album.
Joly, who honed her songwriting, guitar and piano playing skills in Nova Scotia after leaving RDC, has been involved in musicals and choirs across the country, and now teaches voice, guitar and piano at 53rd Street Music in Red Deer.
Along with Sadler’s harmonic accompaniment, Joly produces “raw, sweet and unique vocals.”
The two will put them to use in front of an audience from 1 to 3 p.m. on Friday at The Hub, at 4936 Ross St.
100 Mile House to play The Hideout
The alternative folk band 100 mile house is playing this week in Red Deer.
The Edmonton-area group made up of husband and wife singers Peter Stone and Denise MacKay and multi-instrumentalist Scott Zubot, is becoming known for thoughtful lyrics and insightful songs about relationships, among other things.
The group that’s played on CKUA and CBC Radio, released the debut album from fall to fall in 2009 and is now on a Western Canadian tour in support of new CD, hollow ponds.
Stone and MacKay, who just placed first in a Calgary songwriting competition, perform Friday (May 20) at The Hideout, in Gasoline Alley.
