Upcoming Performances

Ron Hawkins CD Release Show

  • Ron Hawkins
    March 27, 2015
    7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Ron Hawkins is, for my money, the best songwriter in the country. There, I said it. His body of work – from The Lowest of the Low, through The Rusty Nails, his solo work and what he’s now producing – stacks up against anything I’ve heard over the past two plus decades. His brand-spanking-new album […]

One of our fave local rock bands – Scrapes – returns to The Carleton for a show on Friday, March 27th. It’ll be a rock show, ladies and gentlemen. Live music will start after 10 PM and it’s a measly $5 at the door to get in. I’d expect a great mix of originals and […]

The lads will start bashing out the rock’n’roll at around 10 […]


Shaun Majumder & Friends – New Material Only

  • Shaun Majumder
    March 29, 2015
    8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

If we had our way – and believe me, we’ve tried – we’d have Shaun Majumder and his This Hour Has 22 Minutes pals at The Carleton 3 times a week. Apparently, that’s not realistic but we do have them for one last New Material Only night on Sunday, March 29th. The title of the […]

It’s a Friday night – April 3rd – and it’s coming up to Easter. What better way to observe Good Friday other than to make it a “great” one and come to The Carleton for the super-fantastic Roxy & The Underground Soul Sound? Roxy fronts one of the hottest bands in town and they aim […]
