The show is all ages and is $10 at the door. According to the Facebook event, “It’s gonna be the best $10 you’ll ever spend”. Who am I to disagree?

Medicine Hat College is just one week away from its annual homecoming celebration, “Shake, Rattler n’ Roll.” The event is aimed at both alumni and the community, and hopes to bring Hatters of all ages to campus.

The event kicks off on Friday September 16 with an alumni cabaret. Local favourites Mahoney will be performing for MHC alumni, and appetizers and drinks will be served. The free cabaret will take place in the new courtyard outside of Crave as well as inside the campus pub. Anyone who attended classes at MHC is welcome to come and renew friendships with former classmates. Alumni can RSVP to

The action continues Saturday afternoon as the Rattlers soccer teams play host to the Lethbridge Kodiaks in their home openers. The women take the field at 12 p.m. and the men at 2 p.m. Both games are free for the public to attend.

After the soccer games, the excitement will carry over to the return of the free ATB Family Fun Zone at 4 p.m. This year’s fun zone will feature several stations, including the ever popular face painting, clown, Wandering Wally, inflatable obstacle course, bungee run and castles. Also, the Lion’s Club will be selling snacks in the Fun Zone area to keep everyone ready for a day of entertainment. Families will especially enjoy the addition of acapella group Hoja.

The group will perform hit songs such as “Mountain Top” and “When the Night Feels My Song.” With a modern urban sound mixed with reggae fundamentals, the group is sure to bring a great vibe to the outdoor show.

The songwriters first joined forces when they found themselves onstage singing with Jane Siberry on her famous encore “Calling All Angels.” After heading clean across Canada on the first leg of their Dirty Laundry Dual CD Release Tour 2011, duo partners Jenny Allen and Leslie Alexander are returning to BC with their new solo CDs, each produced by BCCMA/BCMIA Producer of the Year John Ellis (Be Good Tanyas, Jane Siberry, Barney Bentall).

“The music here is exceptional,” said about Jenny’s disc Blanket, while Earshot called Leslie Alexander’s “Nobody’s Baby” a “genre-bending, intelligently written, well-performed album.” With each artist a strong voice in her own right, together Allen & Alexander deliver the razor-sharp songwriting and powerhouse performances fans have come to expect from their solo shows – and more. Now sharing seamless vocals, multiple instruments, and much in common, Allen & Alexander agree that their set list – exchanged like a salty heart-to-heart over a load of laundry – contains their most personal songs yet.

The Friends of the Monarch are proud to announce the launch of the Monarch’s Centennial Celebration season. A number of events have been planned to celebrate the 100th birthday of this historic building and we wish to extend an invitation to the citizens of Medicine Hat to join us.

The first event is “THE MAJESTIC” which will take place on Saturday, September 24, 2011. Starting at 2pm on Second Street in front of the Theatre, a Vintage Car Show will feature vehicles that would have been on the streets in the 1950s. The 50’s theme continues at 5:30 pm with burgers, fries, and fresh made pie served in 50’s style by carhops. At 7:30 pm, the movie, “The Majestic”, starring Jim Carrey and telling a story set in restored theatre during the 1950s, will be screened in our beautiful theatre. At 9 pm we will move to the historic hall in St. Barnabas Church, another Medicine Hat treasure, to relive the sock hops of yesteryear. The ever popular “Kool Ray and the Hipkatz”, an 8 piece orchestra, will keep the crowd swinging and jiving. A swing/jive dance demonstration and dance competition will showcase some of our local dance “stars”. Downtown merchants have donated wonderful prizes that will be awarded for Best 50’s Costume, Best Dance Couple, and for some old fashioned “spot dances”. A silent auction and refreshment sales (including home-made floats) will help with the fund-raising to enable the restoration of the Monarch and its equipment. Car show, Dinner, Movie and Dance are all included in the $50 ticket price. Tickets are available at: The Monarch Theatre Box Office, Inspire Café, or by calling Judy at (403) 529-9231 or emailing

The Society of Friends of the Monarch Theatre is a not-for-profit society with our objectives being to promote and fundraise for the Monarch Theatre. The theatre website address is

I wanted to let everybody know about a relatively new Facebook Group, entitled, Medicine Hat Live Indy Music. For a while now, the number of musical venues in the city have been dwindled to a very meager selection, especially for independent, local, and smaller artists. This has triggered in less shows, but also more misinformation about those shows that do happen.

Medicine Hat Live Indy Music aims to solve this problem by offering a place for all local and incoming indie bands to advertise their shows, but also to help them get information on venues and gigs within the city… a problem that Medicine Hat Media also tries to solve once and awhile when a band requests it.

Which also reminds me, as posted in the group, there’s a show going on tonight at the The Legion Hall Games Room at 7PM featuring The Afterbeat w/ The Social Threat, The Weekend Kids, and Old Wives. View the Facebook Event for that here.
