At the German Club, local alt-country favourites The Lonesome Weekends are playing a show. Awhile back, the band released their debut CD Songs for Lonesome Weekends (pictured). Tickets are $5.

Tomorrow night, the hard-rocking Canuck trio C’mon are playing O’Hanlon’s Pub with Bright Black. It’s the last live show at the pub for a time as renovations to expand the bar kick into high gear. To close, here’s video of C’mon performing “Mirrors” at a 2010 show in Moncton.
