MUSIC VENUES IN REGINA

Saturday, August 23rd 2014

Anyone ever heard of “Orange Goblin”? There are quite a few albums on iTunes and no I haven’t bought any. I’ll have to do another preview on iTunes. First reaction for me, they sounded pretty good, for a hard rock/metal band.

For those who love Patrick Stewart or Star Trek in general!

Regina’s music venues. My favourite venue is no longer a music venue, The Distrikt. It closed last year, but I saw/discovered really good bands there. Big Wreck, The Headstones, Shadows Fall, Thornley, The New Meanies, Nickelback at the start of their career, Finger Eleven, Our Lady Peace played there 7 or 8 years ago, etc.

If you’re in a new original music group you get a choice of the Exchange (AWESOME venue) or the Riddel Center at the university. Any cover/tribute band can play anywhere and receive a much higher pay day. I don’t know if anybody still uses Doris Knight Hall (the basement of the Conexus Arts Center)? Holds roughly 1,000 people. I saw I Mother Earth, Finger Eleven, Everclear, The Mayfield Four, The Watchmen, Big Wreck, Nickelback opening for Everclear there. There’s also the over priced Casino show lounge ( bands usually play one hour exactly), our arena Brandt Center who has hosted Elton John, Tool, Barenaked Ladies, Blue Man Group, Phillip Phillips, our football field has had BIG name acts there (Taylor Field @ Mosaic Stadium) Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Bon Jovi, AC/DC, etc. We also have another bar called Pure, The Pump and The Tap. The Exchange and the Riddel Center are my favourites. I would add Doris Knight Hall, but I haven’t seen anyone use it in years.

Why did this turn into a music blog? Because “music is a BIG @#$%#$& deal”-Dave Grohl
“Complaining won’t solve anything. If you want something done your way, just do it yourself!”
“Don’t try to please everyone, it CAN’T happen”
“Learn something from your mistakes and don’t do them again”
“I feel good about the good things and bad about the bad things”-David Eric Grohl
