Times Change(d) Turns Nine
Someone’s having a birthday party and you’re invited.
Times Change(d) High and Lonesome Club turns nine this year, and to celebrate, it’s having a four-night-long party. The bash kicks off on January 14 with blues rockers The Perpetrators and alternative folk rocker Scott Nolan. Nashville folk/bluegrass singer Tom House and Winnipeg country/bluegrass band the D. Rangers, and eclectic roots group Mayor Matt Allen and the Little Buddies take the stage on January 15. January 16 has two sets by House: a solo one at 7pm, the other at 10pm with the D. Rangers. Jaxon Haldane of Jackpine and Les Jupes will also play. On Sunday night the Whisky Awards will be handed out with the help of Big Dave McLean and friends.
The venerable Winnipeg institution is often considered one of the best places to catch roots and blues in Winnipeg. Acts such as folk rockers Elliott BROOD, Winnipeg darling Romi Mayes, folk songstress Amelia Curran, and country rocker Dustin Bentall have all played at Times Change(d) in the past.
The venue, which opened in 2001, has established a loyal fanbase amongst music fans and musicians alike. On the horizon are gigs from The Dusty Roads Band, The Wind-Ups, Nathan, and The Crooked Brothers; proof that the venue isn’t slowing down anytime soon.
There's plenty going on in clubs this weekend, including... Wang the Merciless' Funk Hunger Tour 2010 at the Pyramid, the Magnum K.I. CD Release at the WECC, and Open Mic @ The Folk Exchange with Del Barber all on Friday, and SitDownTracy's CD release on Saturday at The Lo Pub with The Playing Cards and Ultra Mega.
