Friday May 25th
The UnCoolas Hit Revue @ Revival Music Room
Jason Gervais @ Cask 82
The Boy Band Night @ Casino Regina - A night of bands pretending to popular boy bands from the 90's and on. Tributes Backstreet Boys, New Kids on the Block, NSync, One Direction, Boys 2 Men, maybe TBTBT and B44 too, who knows?
Memorial Cup Music Series @ Credit Union EventPlex w/ LOVERBOY!!!!! and Method 2 Madness.
Friends of Foes @ O'Hanlon's
Brodie Moniker @ Bearcats Lounge - Moose Jaw's prodigal son - now Regina rock legend, playing a solo show, warming up for the Cathedral Village Art Festival. I really love his song "Even Birds Return", which is actually about leaving Moose Jaw. If you live in this city you really ought to know the poetry that defines it.
Saturday May 26th
Jason Gervais @ Cask 82
Nick Faye @ Rock Creek East - Nick Faye is gonna be deputy-less for this one. Saturday night it will be just him and his guitar and a little bit of intimacy. Over the years, Faye has become one of Regina's biggest recording acts. His new album "Stumbling Distance" is fantastic. Check it out on Bandcamp: https://nickfaye.bandcamp.com/
Radiomatic w/ the 6 String Kings @ Revival Music Room - Radiomatic has got to be great. My boss plays drums for them.
Gareth Bawden @ London Belle
Blue Youth w/ Dead Fibres, Yama Hama and Anemone @ The German Club
The Strange Valentines @ Lancaster Taphouse
Opal Stone w/ The Hourhand @ The Capitol
Memorial Cup Music Series: Canadian country legend Paul Brandt will be playing alongside David James and Leaving Thomas at the Credit Union EventPlex.
The League of One w/ The 86's @ Park Hotel - League of One are a workingman's party band. I mean, they even sing songs about it. It's fun, goofy, schlocky rock music for people who don't necessarily take life too seriously. Great music for a Saturday night out on the town.
Sunday May 27th:
Memorial Cup Music Series w/ Regina's most popular act, The Dead South @ the Credit Union EventPlex. These guys became a national (arguably international) recording success when they released their video for "In Hell I'll be in Good Company" went viral. It's now been viewed over 63 Million times and most certainly by anyone in Regina who might be reading this page, making it, without question, one of the biggest and most instantly memorable songs to ever come out of the province. It will certainly go down in Sask Music history as an all-time classic. Screw it: lets get that video a couple more views; you should probably have it memorized by now anyways.
Tuesday May 29th:
The Pink Noise w/ Man Made Hill and Sunny Day Encore @ Mitsu Sweet Cafe - The Pink Noise is a very strange punk band that's been doing very strange punk music for over 20 years now. They're so freaking strange they don't even have a Facebook page. They actually built quite a following in Montreal and seem quite content to continually release cool, new, strange punk music. They kind of sound like Iggy & the Stooges or the Buzzcocks. They are currently on tour with Man Made Hill and will be playing alongside Moose Jaw group, Sunny Day Encore at Mitsu Sweet Café. What could be more interesting than a Tuesday night punk concert in a delicate Japanese café?

The Alley Dawgs @ the Fat Badger
