Secret Broadcast – Oct. 3
Heroes Pub, doors @ 7:30 p.m., $5
Friendly Calgarian guitar-led indie-rockers will make a trip across the Rockies to play some crashing drums and bouncy guitars. They’re aiming for a double set. The show is the first of Heroes’s planned Live Music Wednesdays.
Wide Mouth Mason – Oct. 16
The Dirty Jersey, doors at 8 p.m., $25
Long-time white-boy bluesmen Wide Mouth Mason will be taking another pass over the Thompson Rivers, playing songs spanning from a 17-year career. They played an enthusiastic set in Kamloops last year and there’s no reason to believe they’ve changed.
Matt Mays – Oct. 22 (with Gloryhound and The Meds)
The Blue Grotto, doors at 8 p.m., $20 advance
Juno-nominee and fan of the jean jacket, Matt Mays will bring an eclectic mix of rock. He’s toured with Blue Rodeo, been featured on fellow denim-devotee Sam Robert’s songs and featured rapper Buck 65 on his own work. A shaggy-haired Mays is touring to support his new album Coyote.
Revolvr – Oct. 25 (with The Hunter and dj virtue)
Cactus Jacks, doors at 9 p.m., $7 advance
Rising electronica DJ and social-media sound-effect sampler, Revolvr, will drop some bass on CJs. A fast-paced style has had Revolvr catch the ear of superstar Tiesto and is leading to his fast rise over the past year. For fans of electronic dance music this could be a chance to see a star on the rise (remember when Skrillex played here?).
