Peter Katz and Emma-Lee to play The Slice

Occasionally, I get emails from band publicists to help promote Canadian artists on tour. I'd always pleased to see folks from around our country taking interest in our city and spending the time to reach out to me. Tara writes: You’d be hard-pressed to find a more talented pair than Toronto’s Peter Katz and Emma-Lee. Both …

Highway 3 Roots Revue returns at The Slice

My brudda Leeroy Stagger returns with Dave McCann and John Wort Hannam for their fifth annual Highway 3 tour, December 9th at The Slice:

Three Alberta songwriters come together each winter to tour as Highway 3. They leave their bands at home and tour their songs in the stripped down, bare bones style in which they were written. This is a chance to catch these artists in an intimate setting where they present their music in the spirit in which it was written, guitar, and voice. 
Check out their Facebook event page.

Matt Schellenberg writes: Royal Canoe is going to be playing Feb 26 [email protected] The Slice and I was wondering if Lethbian Love would be interested in doing a little promo piece on the show?

Wax Mannequin comes to Lethbridge

Chris Adeney, known to most as Wax Mannequin, is one of my favourite Canadian musicians (besides Leeroy Stagger and Bryan Adams).  Though I haven’t seen many bands lately, his shows make me suffer The Slice at least once a year. And that time is almost at hand, as he comes to Lethbridge on March 31 as part of his “Hear Some Evil” tour with The Burning Hell.

Wax Mannequin was born in the smoke and industry of Hamilton; a damaged, underdog town; a perfect breeding ground for strange, variant things. Incorporating folk, scrappy prog-metal and a tireless creative ethic, Wax infused his local influences with road-broken experience to forge something unsettlingly new.

Virgin orgy tonight

No, I’m not kidding. Tonight at The Slice, random strangers will sandwich each other in a “cuddle party.” A cuddle party, as described by Wikipedia, allows “people to experience non-sexual group physical intimacy through cuddling.” Tonight’s event provides “tools for better communication and intimacy, and information about the benefits of touch.” Talk about Lethbian love!  …

Some say party, we say “RD!”

Every city has a scene – some are bigger, some are badder but all a reflection of what that city/town/rural meet up is. Lethbridge, typically thought of as a conservative town, has an incredible “scene.” From Endangered Ape to The Turncoats; The Darby and Joan Club to the Chief Mountain and the White Guy; we have got it all. There is an interesting dynamic here in Lethbridge. We have a ton of musical artists, many who play in several bands, some who play in almost all. A changing face almost every month, projects and sub-projects appear and disappear. There are a few people who really drive it, you can usually tell who these people are in any city. Certain distinguishing marks set these go getter’s out.

And the #1 live music venue in Canada is…

…not The Slice. [audio:https://lethbianlove.ca/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/priceisright-losinghorn.mp3] Initially I questioned how they even made the list, but the reality is that competition for live music in Lethbridge has been sorely lacking. But when opportunity arose, they successfully filled the void that the Tongue ‘n Groove had left behind. So I must congratulate the owners of The Slice, Jesse …
