Hey there, time traveller!

Thursday, Canadian Mennonite University. Finlay is a local jazz stalwart, but, surprisingly, is only now getting around to releasing her sophomore solo album, Anywhere But Here. For her release party, the saxophonist will be joined by Don Thompson, Jodi Proznick, Ron Halldorson, Quincy Davis and Erin Propp. Admission is $22.


Friday, Cowboys. Dauphin country artist Jerry Sereda earned national exposure for his 2009 debut, which he hopes to expand on with the release of his followup, Turn the Country On, featuring the singles Ain’t Learned Nothin’ Yet and Morning After the Night Before, both getting play across Canada. The $15 admission at the 9:30 p.m. show includes a copy of the new C.D.


Friday, West End Cultural Centre. Eclectic singer-songwriter/poet/beat boxer CR Avery is also an author who released his second book of poems, 38 Bar Blues, in April. He is on the road with fellow West Coast songwriter Wil. Tickets are $17.25 at Ticketmaster, the Folk Festival Music Store and Music Trader.


Saturday, Pyramid Cabaret. Brothers Jeff, Don and Paul Hatcher and friend David Briggs play a rare gig joined by Ken Pinchin, John Neal and Wendy Bird, whose 2009 album, Natural Wonder, was a collection of Jeff Hatcher-penned songs. Tickets are $18.50 at Ticketmaster. The band is on at 9:30 p.m.


Tuesday, Garrick Centre. Stoner rock legends Kyuss are on the road again, but without guitarist Josh Homme and, in Canada, without bassist Nick Oliveri, who presumably can’t cross the border after being charged with felony domestic violence following a five-hour standoff with the Los Angeles SWAT team in July. He is being replaced by Scott Reeder, who took over for him in Kyuss in 1992. Tickets are $39.75 at Ticketmaster.
