    February 26, 2015 - March 27, 2015

Halifax songwriter Mike Bochoff and his band are a good night out and we think that if you don’t already know about them, you should! To that end, the lads will be playing at The Carleton on Thursday, February 26th. Live music will start sometime after 9 PM and it’ll only be $5 at the […]

The Carletones

  • The Carletones
    February 28, 2015 - March 25, 2015
    10:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Carletones is The Carleton‘s long-standing house band made up of some of the best musicians in the city and, we think, one of the best bands in Halifax. With very rare exceptions they play every Saturday night. The band covers anything from Neil Young, Tom Petty and Springsteen to T-Rex, J.J. Cale and Joan […]

Newfoundland‘s brilliant Fortunate Ones release their debut CD, The Bliss, at The Carleton on Monday, March 2nd, with able support from Winnipeg‘s freshly Juno-nominated Del Barber. Show time is 8 PM and tickets are only $15 (+ booking fee). Do. Not. Miss. This. Fortunate […]

The Mellotones

  • The Mellotones
    March 6, 2015 - March 7, 2015
    9:00 pm - 2:00 am

The city’s acknowledged kings of the dance floor – The Mellotones – have a night off (and we’ve never had them on our stage), so we’ve got them booked for Friday, March 6th for a blow-out, maybe-Spring-is-coming bash. Show time will be 10 PM and I’m pretty sure there’ll be special guests AND it’s only […]

The March Hare

  • The March Hare
    March 8, 2015
    2:30 pm - 5:00 pm

The annual March Hare is a celebration of the Arts in Newfoundland & Labrador that tours throughout that province with a couple of other notable stops; one in Toronto and one in Halifax.

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 […]


  • Scrapes
    March 27, 2015 - March 28, 2015
    10:00 pm - 2:00 am

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 […]
