Going back in time
Jump in your DeLorean, fire up that flux capacitor and go back in time – musically anyway.
Old Time Machine will be celebrating the release of its first album at the Back to the Yukon show at the Guild Hall on Saturday.
Old Time Machine is the latest collaboration between musical upstarts Ryan McNally and Kyle Cashen.
McNally brings a bit of the past to the mixture, with rock and blues stylings on guitar and vocals – a little like Marty McFly playing Johnny B Good.
And if McNally can be compared to McFly then that must make Cashen Doc Brown.
The show will be kicking off at 8 p.m. on Saturday at the Guild Hall.
Weeknights on the weekend
Soir de Semaine will be launching its second album this Saturday as well, celebrating with a performance at Tippler’s Pub.
The new album is has more rock, ska and reggae influences, infused with up-beat, positive lyrics.
Music starts at 10 p.m. Bring your dancin’ shoes.
The Warblers will be playing at the Westmark Lounge tonight for a live happy hour concert, from 6 to 9 p.m.
The group, featuring Kim Beggs and Natalie Edelson with special guest Vanessa Marshak, play originals and traditionals, sweet and savory favourites infused with an old-timey feel.
