News Breaks and Stories Coming Soon

Posted: Wednesday, July 28, 2010 by •»¶hê ƒRëq»•-)•–––– in

After a weeks holiday it's time to update what is coming up on The Barking Eye.   First,  I have contacted the bands "The Blackberries" and Greg from "The Billy Bastards" for info about their recording technique for the material they release through their sites.   Hopefully they send me the goods soon ;-)  Also, the long over due showcase of  local singer Dale Corcoran  along with artist/ graphic designer Errol Monchka.   I am still waiting for George from Crank Sound Distribution for time to get an interview happening.  This is his busy season and we'll have something for you when his schedule opens up.

Numerous recent metal music news stories can be read at Rob's  ""Sault Metal Scene"  and for that reason, I won't repeat those stories here.  Sometimes it's unavoidable as a lot of artists in the Sault crossover different styles of music.  There is enough features to satisfy everyone throughout the numerous local forums.

News Breaks and Rumours:

The old Eastgate Bar has been sitting idle for what seems like years and a recent article on Sootoday says the bar has had an offer placed on it.  Rumours are that the building may be a seniors home or something to that effect.  I'm sure if this falls through, the building will be demolished but you never know.   I do believe the city now owns the property because of unpaid taxes.

Rumours have been going around again about the old stock car track on 5th Line possibly being a concert ground.   When this rumour flew 10 years ago, the neighbours pretty much shut that idea down because of the noise factor.  I'm looking into this again and will hopefully find the details if this is just talk or a possible entertainment facility.   When the Castle Farms concert grounds shut down years ago, there was interest in recreating that concert vibe via the stock car property which  now sits vacant. Every few years this rumour surfaces and it would be cool if they did in fact develop this property for entertainment. 

Local Band CD's coming soon.

Wishbone has recorded their 2nd album.  No release date announced yet.  They are currently rehearsing with new drummer T.J. Case.

Garden of Bedlam are also set to release their latest work and will be featured as the opening act for KISS this August.   Having their CD  finished and printed for this show would be a stellar achievement and in my opinion an absolute must for the  recognition and sales.  I hope they can pull it off.  Can you imagine the exposure?  ;-)

That's it for now.

Posted: Friday, July 2, 2010 by •»¶hê ƒRëq»•-)•–––– in

Well, here it is folks, the mysterious main stage list of entertainment for this years 2010 Rotaryfest.  I hope it was worth the wait. ;-)  I'm glad that Rotaryfest is continuing with the Jazz in the Park series.  It's good to hear other styles of music and if you're a fan of Dock's jazz night, you'll see a lot of familiar faces Thursday at Rotaryfest.

Friday sees repeat performances by some of the Sault's most popular bands including Mustang Heart who have easily been together for a decade.   This band features the great talents of Marci and and Dama Chindamo on vocals and bass, Adam King on guitar.

Saturday features the debut of Huckster to the main stage who have just released a CD called "Designed for Real Life" along with  Buffalo Alice making their first appearance.  Also Saturday is the Bruce Springsteen Tribute act "Glory Days" featuring hometown musicians Serge Trembley (lead vocal/ guitar) and Paola Erme (drums).
