A big weekend for Metal and Hip-Hop.

Wasteland Zombies (Facebook).

OK. There’s a lot happening.  If you’re not headed to Gagetown to bask in the entertainment plethora that is Feels Good Folly Fest (and we certainly understand if you are), here’s a quick look at what’s happening in the usual downtown haunts.  Enjoy the weekend!

When it rains, it pours.  There are TWO metal shows happening on Friday. TWO! How will you decide? We suggest taking full advantage of the situation and attending both events. Totally doable.

First off, let’s talk all-ages entertainment.  The Charoltte Street Arts Centre plays host to School’s Out Forever featuring Enemy Designed from Halifax, Abysseral Throne from Moncton and Fredericton locals, The Monteith Brothers, The Green Lung Grinders, The Wasteland Zombies and Cable Crusher. All-ages shows don’t come along everyday. School’s out!

School’s Out Forever | Charlotte Street Arts Centre | 4:00p.m. – 10:00p.m. | $10 | View Event 


Four of the biggest names in Maritime metal have been performing together as part of the 4x4x4 Tour.  They’ve hit Charlottetown and Halifax so far. Now it’s NB’s turn. Death Valley Driver, Dischord, Orchid’s Curse and Hero’s Last Rite.  Our very own East Coast BIG FOUR!  Read a bit more about the tour here.
