Sound Decisions: The weekend’s best live music.

Category: music 176

Hey Fredericton! There are plenty of sounds to be heard this weekend. Everything from fist-pumping hip-hop to toe-tapping country.  Here are four reasons to put off revisiting the last season of Game of Thrones until Sunday night.


Friday June 19, 2015


Cape Breton’s Slowcoaster make their long-awaited return to the Capital Complex.  Infectious grooves, great songwriting and a long history of bringing the party.  They’ll be joined by Halifax psych-rock outfit, The Brood.  The Brood have been described as off-kilter jazz-tinged surf-rock, with hints of Zappa, Ween, and The Grateful Dead. The perfect way to get your weekend started on this rainy Friday.

Slowcoaster + The Brood | Capital Complex | Doors at 10 | Show at 10:45 | $12


Under The Sun is a professional cover band based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and they’ve been rocking audiences across the Maritimes since 1995. A night with Under The Sun is a total rock and roll party, from the first guitar riff to the final drum roll. What sets this band apart is their ability to effortlessly shift from classic rock to ’80s pop, 90s alternative, and modern rock tunes without missing a beat. Every song is instantly recognizable and guaranteed to pack the dance floor.

Halifax’s high-energy hip-hop machine Three Sheet return to The Capital Complex for what will surely be a great night of beats and rhymes from these friendly folks. Three Sheet’s live show has yet to disappoint – they’re always GAME ON! They’ll be joined by Brooklyn, New York’s Durians, who deliver “…booming synths, heavy drums and instrumentals reminiscent of alien screeches — so bombastic that the floorboards shake.”  This is going to be a pretty sweet night.

Maritime Countryfest celebrates 10 years this weekend welcoming Johnny Reid, The Road Hammers, Joe Diffie, Sunday Best and East Coast up-and-comer Makayla Lynn to their stage at Officer’s Square. Looks like the weather will cooperate. Should be a time!  Congrats to the organizers for keeping this train on the tracks for 10 years. #downtownfredericton
