A great independent music line-up going on Tuesday night, October 20th as presented by the Young & Pretty Folk Music Association. The cover will be $5 and will start at 9PM. It’s been a while since I’ve done a post for a Young & Pretty event, mostly because of my lack of knowledge on the great indie scene in this town, but also, there’s generally 1-3 shows happening a week so it’s hard to keep up on sometimes. The best source to get this information is on the Young & Pretty Folk Music Association MySpace page or by joining their Facebook group. This show features Young Galaxy, an indie-rock band from Montreal, Bend Sinister an extremely varied folkish-rockish type ensemble from Vancouver and lastly, Mordichia, a local band of experimental music fame.

Scatterheart last performed at the Ottoman Lounge a couple months ago and it looks like they are back for more. This time they will be playing on Friday, October 16th starting at 9:30PM at the Ottoman Lounge again. I should also mention that they were in the Medicine Hat even before that on their tour with Bif Naked. After the last show, a local blogger and avid-music-listener type of fellow, Chris did a couple blog posts on his site about the band and his experience with them at their last show which were an interesting read. Scatterheart, the band themselves, even did a full video blog about the Ottoman Lounge and their experience in Medicine Hat (video below) – talk about dedication!

Here’s another one of those bigger name bands showing up in Medicine Hat in 2009. Vancouver band, Marianas Trench will be playing an all ages show at the Cypress Centre on October 30th, 2009. With them, are three guests: The New Cities, Carly Rae Jepsen (of Canadian Idol fame), and The Mission District. All of the bands are in or around the same genre: that pop-punky rock type stuff, some might reference “emo” as well with except Carly Rae Jepsen who is more folk-pop. They are also all Canadian bands ranging from all over the country.

Tickets will be $25 and you can get them by calling 403-527-1234 or online here. Seems pretty worth it to me, $25 for a big line-up like this?
