Here’s a look at five upcoming shows happening this weekend in Fredericton. There’s a little something for everyone. Metal, folk, new wave, rockabilly and….theatre? Yup. Lots to see and do.
Mike Filipowitch, Dillon Ryan & The Dream Romantic, Michelle Morrison at The Cap | Friday July 29 | 7:30 p.m. | View Event
Who remembers the time when jam bands were popular? If that era holds a special place in your heart, you most likely have a soft spot for The Burt Neilson Band. Mike Filipowitch was the group’s lead guitarist and vocalist. You may even know him. Come hear songs spanning his 25 year music career including some of your BNB favs. Also on the bill are Miramichi new wave revivalist Dillon Ryan (his new album is !!!) and Fredericton’s own banjo-toting songwriter, Michelle Morrison. Variety is the spice of life.
Yhorm + Elevate The Virus + Paratomb at The Cap | Saturday July 30 | 9 p.m. | View Event
Another night of crushing tunes at The Cap – the second in as many weeks. No complaints here. Sussex-based post-hardcore champs Yhorm blew our minds with their 2020 debut Giants Respite. This is their first Fredericton performance. Should be wild. Elevate the Virus and Paratomb round out this evening of heavy jams. Wear a helmet.
Murder Mondays + I Hope You Can See The Birds (NotaBle Acts Theatre Festival) | Saturday July 30 | Memorial Hall | 7:30 p.m. | View Event

That’s what’s in store and UNB’s beautiful Memorial Hall this Saturday night as the 2022 edition of the NotaBle Acts Theatre Festival closes out another year with two one-act plays by Fredericton writers Kaitlyn Adaoir and Julianne Richard. The reviews have been big. Why not come out and see what the fuss is about?
Adyn Townes + Benny Vov at Grimross Brewing Co. | Saturday July 30 | 8 p.m. | View Event
A big night of singer songwriter goodness is happening this Saturday at the city’s only uptown live music venue, Grimross Brewing Co. Fredericton’s Adyn Townes teams up with emerging PEI musician Benny Von for an evening of stories and songs. Townes is one of the region’s most successful and memorable songwriters with international tours and numerous awards under his belt.

Dapper Dan & The Drive-in Classics at Broken Record | Sunday July 31 | 10 p.m. | View Event
It’s a long weekend so you know what that means: Sunday night shows!

I hear that train a comin’….
