If there was any indication that Billy Joel was playing in Medicine Hat it would be the all the posters and even some mobile billboards posted around Medicine Hat saying, “BILLY JOEL” in huge letters. You would be wrong on two accounts though. For one, he is actually playing in Redcliff, at Harmony Hall, and two, he’s not Billy Joel, he’s a Billy Joel tribute artist named Don Wolf. I guess it’s kind of clever, but ultimately deceptive advertising, and I’m sure it says “as Don Wolf, tribute show” somewhere on the billboard and posters – but when you’re driving past them it would be hard to notice, especially since the words “BILLY JOEL” take up 50% of the board. Anyways, end of that rant.

Harmony Hall seems to be a new and upcoming venue, which I first heard about when Gob played there. Don Wolf will be playing a 90 minute set playing all of Billy Joel’s greatest hits including Piano Man, Uptown Girl, and River of Dreams. Admission costs $49 and includes a full buffet dinner and the show. Doors open at 6PM and the dinner & show starts at 7PM. For more information, call 403-979-1572. Harmony Hall is at 1 – 1st Street SE, Redcliff.

Gob will be stopping by Redcliff’s Harmony Hall on February 7th. Notice the question mark in the title. Redcliff? I have no idea why, but this can probably be attributed to the late Doghouse burning down and all. But still? Anyways, back to Gob…

Canadian punk rock band, Gob is recently touring promoting their first new album in four years, “Muertos Vivos”. If you don’t know who Gob is, you probably do, you just forgot about them. They did the popular “I Hear You Calling” which has been featured on like… everything. They can also be tagged as some of the bands that sparked the “pop-punk” movement in the early 2000’s. Sum 41, Good Charlotte, Treble Charger… ring any bells? They were all the rage in high-school with awesome pop-punky songs like “Soda” (this is also before they got big, and controversially “less punk”). Hey, I even got their autographs on a sticker when I was 15. To this day it’s still proudly stuck to… actually I have no idea where it is.

Anyways, admission will cost $25 dollars in advance and tickets can be purchased at Dayz Off Pub (640 Kingsway Avenue S.E.), Revolution Tattoo Company (110-3215 Dunmore Road, S.E.), and Who’s on Third (222 Broadway Ave. E. in Redcliff). A little pricey, no? Video and links after the jump:
