Saturday, October 14th 5–10pm

In 1810, Prince Ludwig was about to get married. He invited all of the surrounding communities to celebrate the impending nuptials at the gates of the castle. What sprang from that was the annual celebration of the Harvest called Oktoberfest... with Beer, Bread, Sausage, music and merriment, this Bavarian party continues throughout the world 200 years later. Join us this evening for a celebration of the Harvest.

STACK BREWING CASK NIGHT - Our friends at Stack are letting some Lazerhosen soak on Vanilla Beans for a month and we will tap this cask at 6pm tonight and hopefully all will have a pint. (Age of Majority of course... the kids can have pop)

FOOD - Aside from Pretzels and some Brats, we will put out some great items from local farmers and celebrate the Harvest for what has become a vibrant farming area that works diligently on growing new foods in the north, responsible farming and food securities in our many communities.

MUSIC - We'll have a little live music early in the evening and then follow it up with a great night of live bands starting at 10pm... Featuring Sex and Summer, Les Gauchistes, Vintage Slang and Deadline.

COST - Other than food and drink orders, there is no admission cost for the evening portion. Cover starts later for the bands.

BIRTHDAY - Paul was born during the first Kitchener Oktoberfest at St. Mary's Hospital in Kitchener while his father was helping organize and print all the promotional materials for the largest Bavarian Festival in North America... It's Kristen from Sex and Summers birthday as well. Whatever reason you come to celebrate... please join us for revelries.

When The Townehouse began to bring in interesting music, it tapped into the cultural vein of the country.  Everything else in this generation of the Arts community blossomed from this corner.  The Townehouse was the start of the change that transformed Elgin Street and steered downtown back towards a centre of cultural capital.

From the guitar store at the top of the street (Cosmic Dave’s, 420 Elgin) through the School of Architecture and beyond, Elgin Street is full of the restaurants, galleries, coffee shops, a tattoo parlor and music stores that breathe life into this city. Add to that the Theatre Centre, Book Stores, Clothing Stores, and Craft Galleries. Smack dab in the centre… ground zero if you will… is the place where it all started, The Townehouse Tavern.

Sunday, October 1st – Patricia Cano – Record Release. Doors 7pm. Tickets $15.00/ $30.00 with CD. Please make dinner reservations beginning at 5:00pm so we can clear dinner tables for theatre seating in the top area.

Patricia Cano was born in Sudbury, where she began her career on stage as a young dancer, and later, as a community theatre player. After studies in Theater and Spanish Literature at the University of Toronto, she embraced the career of traveling artist, first with Tomson Highway, the Cree writer and composer, then with le Théâtre du Soleil in France.

In 2001, Patricia performed the lead role of Emily Dictionary in Highway’s play Rose, followed by the title role in his play The Incredible Adventures of Mary-Jane Mosquito, commissioned by the Stratford Music Festival. Since then, the two have traveled the world together performing Tomson Highway’s songs and stories in cabaret form! In August 2009, they premiered a brand new Cree cabaret entitled “KISAGEETIN”, written and composed by Tomson Highway, and performed for the first time in Sudbury, ON at Le Théâtre du Nouvel-Ontario. In June 2010, this new Cree cabaret toured to the Banff Centre for the Arts, as well as Toronto’s Canadian Stage Berkeley Theatre.

The second collaboration of great importance for Patricia’s artistic career began in January 2003 when she joined the Parisian-based theatre company, Le Théâtre du Soleil, under the direction of renowned theatre director, Ariane Mnouchkine. Patricia worked for four years with the company, first on the music stage under the direction of the legendary Jean-Jacques Lemêtre, and later as ‘comédienne’ and finally as a singer. Madame Mnouchkine sent Patricia to Seoul, South Korea in 2005 to study traditional Korean singing with a voice master, and this experience, along with a growing desire to sing, changed her path forever, leading her away from the Old World and back to the New World.

Since 2007, Patricia has invested her energies towards building a singing career. Her partner in this pursuit is her Brazilian friend, guitarist and composer, Carlos Bernardo. In 2008, Patricia spent six months in Rio de Janeiro, befriending exceptional musicians of the ‘Carioca’ jazz scene, as well as beginning to write music of her own.

Now Patricia is releasing her 2nd album. Many have purchased her album in advance and if you haven’t received it already, you can pick it up tonight. This album will undoubtedly be full of flavours of the world, sung in many languages. She is truly an amazingly versatile artist who gives a glowing name to Sudbury wherever she goes in the world.

Tuesday, October 3rd – Pretty Archie - $7.00 at the door, 8pm.

Pretty Archie is a Country/Folk/Bluegrass band from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Long time friends Brian Cathcart (Lead Vocals, Guitar), Matt McNeil (Lead Guitar, Mandolin), Colin Gillis (Harmonica, Bass, Vocals) and Redmond MacDougall (Banjo, Percussion, Vocals) make up this quartet. Always jamming together growing up, they guys decided in May 2012 to form a band. The band chose the name Pretty Archie after a local (Cape Breton) character known for playing with 2 strings outside shopping malls in any weather and not always (or ever) in key. The guys thought the name Pretty Archie embodied the love of playing and performing music along with representing their hometown. Pretty Archie's newest release 'Sing Alongs & Love Songs' was made available on September 23rd 2016. Bringing on Jamie Foulds to produce this project, Pretty Archie continues to push the genre lines of Folk, Bluegrass, Country and Blues creating a uniquely Pretty Archie sound. The 10 song album is a collection of their best songwriting to date, addressing themes of love, loss, life and the forces that drive all three.

Thursday, October 5th – Aerialists – 8:00pm doors.  $12.00 advance.  $15.00 at the door Facebook

Join #NLFB2017 favourite Aerialists as they launch their brand new album Group Manoeuvre! We are thrilled to welcome them back to Sudbury so soon. They are sure to provide an evening of musical acrobatics and dazzling sounds.
In a world where hyphenated genres are becoming the norm, all kinds of monikers are available for a contemporary folk band, Aerialists fits best with the beautifully contradictory term prog-trad. Melding their ferociously creative harmonic sensibilities with a deep love for folk traditions, expect intricately crafted instrumental folk, woven through jazz and post-rock soundscapes. Aerialists formed in early 2014 when long-time collaborators Adam Iredale-Gray (Fish & Bird) and Elise Boeur (Jenny Ritter) joined Mairi Chaimbeul (Darol Anger & The Furies). The band usually performs as a quintet, joined by exceptional bassists Nate Sabat and Wynston Minckler, and drummers including Jake Jenne, Sean Trischka, and Steven Foster.

Children are permitted, accompanied by an adult.

Saturday, October 7th – The Led Zeppelin Night - $7.00 at the door Facebook

When The New Yardbirds struck out in 1967 to pick up the shows that had been booked for the band when the original members left and new guitarist Jimmy Page was left holding the strings, Keith Moon from The Who remarked… “this will go over like a Lead Balloon”.  The saying stuck, with the exception that they changed balloon into Zeppelin.  When The New Yardbirds returned from the tour that they owed the promoters, they changed their name to reflect the monster that they had become.  Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, Robert Plant and John Bonham changed music forever.  They fused blues and hard rock in ways that no one had up to this point.  They took fantasy literature, early 20th century blues hollers, a little mythology, a ton of electricity and created the greatest rock unit of the early 70’s. 

Tonight, Ryan Levecque, Jeff Fuller, John Shelegey and Andrew take us through the popular and the rare of Led Zeppelin.  It is a loving tribute to the band that changed everything in their time.  It’s time to get your rock shoes on.

Sunday, October 8th – Richard Inman - $ at the door, 8:00pm show Facebook

See this show. We can start at 8pm and get you home at an early hour, just in case you don’t have Thanksgiving Monday off. Richard Inman returns for another great show… if you are a fan of classic Americana songwriters… Townes Van Zant, Steve Earle, Gram Parsons, John Prine, Ian Tyson and the current generation of Jonathon Byrd, Corb Lund and others… Richard is among this group of writers. He is quickly becoming a staple of Winnipeg’s folk and country scene. With a butter-rich voice and delicate musical touch, he crafts mature songs that feel at once deeply familiar and bracingly fresh.
Between relentless gigging and a residency at the legendary Times Change(d) High and Lonesome Club, Richard has proven himself a savvy songwriter and true prairie gem. Catch him at his next show and he’ll make you a believer; listen to the new album “30 Days” and he’ll bury his gentle soul in your mind’s ear for a month.

Friday, October 13th – B.A. Johnston, Lazy Daisies, Tommy and the Commies - $10.00 at the door, 10pm… $5.00 if you get there before 10:30pm Facebook

Saturday, October 14th – Sex and Summer,  Vintage Slang, Les Gauchistes, Deadline

*Sex & Summer - Indie Rock/Pop*  - Kristen writes pop songs about girls while Scotty creates grungy guitar licks to rock em' up. The bass player and drummer are the most random but talented strangers you can find on kijiji. Sex & Summer is releasing a new single this fall! If you Google Sex & Summer, just stick with the first few search options that pop up. Things get a bit weird after that...and are not to be associated with the band.
*Vintage Slang - Alt Rock*   -  A group who’s rooted in 1990s/early 2000s Canadian Rock, their debut album “Standing Still” was released in February 2016 & was co-produced by NOMFA Best Album nominee Brent Wohlberg. Vintage Slang are also winners of the 2016 Q92.7 Rock Band Rumble.
*Les Gauchistes*  -  Les Gauchistes perfuse their work with the reality of living in Northern Ontario. This five-piece of musicians loaded with musicality and surprising energy delivers new songs for an album coming soon in a not-too-distant future. Inspired by everything from Metallica to Mutemath, from Radiohead to Japanese punk-metal with meowing cat samples, the occasional weird free jazz song or chiptune, the many inspirations of the five members meld together to form their unique ambient rock tunes.
*Deadline Alt/Grunge Rock*   - The island boys are sailin' back to town! Everyone who catches this band play is blown away. Haunting vocal melodies above minor licks that creep you out a little bit..but kind of make you feel like a bad ass. Once you hear them live, you're suddenly transported into a smokey movie scene. EVERYBODY'S A SUSPECT!!

Thursday, October 19th – Citizen Jane - $7.00 at the door  10:00pm

CITIZEN JANE is a Toronto-based folk-pop duo that evocatively weaves powerful vocal harmonies with innovative string textures to create an emotionally charged soundscape. Hailed a “delight” by Folk Radio UK, Reenie and Lea spark a uniquely intimate connection with all audiences.
Their debut album, “In the Storm”, is a reflection on the value of human connection, touching on themes of war (internal & literal), displacement/isolation, self-doubt.. and an urge to embrace differences, unite, and act with love to make the world a little brighter. From sweet, hopeful viola & guitar melodies, to darker mandolin & cello musings, each song takes on a new character in their sonic journey.  Though primarily a song-driven project, CJ is delving into the fiddle world with a couple of instrumental tunes as well. The album will be brought to life by mixing engineers Adrian Dolan (The Bills, The Wailin’ Jennys) and Jon Kaspy (Emily Rockarts).  The duo consists of married couple Reenie Perkovic (vocals, guitar, mandolin) and Lea Kirstein (viola, fiddle, cello, vocals), who met while studying classical music on the west coast of Canada. The ladies have since made a home in Toronto’s vibrant music scene, as well as doing multiple cross-Canada tours.

Hailing from Niagara/Toronto, the band mixes New Orleans style grooves with funk, jazz and hiphop.  Driving the show, charismatic frontman Jacob Bergsma “can playfully pluck every nerve in your body with his voice” (Earshot), while the well-oiled rhythm section including 2 trombones, sousaphone, 2 trumpets and 2 saxes creates a spectacle of sound.  With this lineup, My Son the Hurricane “stood out like a sore, yet extremely talented thumb at every show they’ve played” (Pulse Niagara), and became revered for their live show. 
Riding the success of their sophomore release “Cashing a Deadman’s Cheque” (feat. U.S.S. frontman Ash Buchholtz and three-time Juno/Polaris nominee D-Sisive), the Hurricane was featured on the CBC and Much More Music.  Their blending of styles and penchant for inciting dance parties and penning introspective ballads (Pushin’ Up Daisies) has garnered them high praise on the Canadian festival circuit with breakout performances at Hillside, Evolve, Beaches Jazz, Summerfolk, Peterborough Folk Fest, and many more.
