Upside Downtown Concert – Atomicos

Upside Downtown Concert – Atomicos

The Allied Arts Council of Lethbridge (AAC) is excited to announce the return of the successful Upside Downtown Concert, bringing free outdoor music to Downtown Lethbridge. Performances will take place on Rotary Square in front of Casa every Thursday in July and August from 5-7 pm. This summer, the series promises an exciting lineup of local talent, making it the perfect way to enjoy warm, shaded, evenings with friends and family. The concerts are free to attend and feature a licensed area for those wishing to enjoy a beverage while soaking in the music. A food truck will also be on-site during the performances.

The Upside Downtown Concert series aims to create a vibrant, inclusive atmosphere where music lovers of all ages can come together and enjoy high-quality live performances. An exciting addition this year will be the curated art presentation “Roots/Route” by Be.Trit featuring a mobile sculpture on the square as well as additional artwork presented within artist kiosks on site.

Upside Downtown is made possible thanks to the generous support of our community-minded sponsors including:

Tourism Lethbridge

Spectrum Ale Works


Westco Construction

Avail CPA

CIR Realty 

Andrew Hilton Wine & Spirits



Surfing the wheat fields of the prairies, Atomicos will wash away your landlocked blues. Intertwined guitar melodies, driving bass and pummeling drums generate tidal waves of sound that recall classic instrumental rockers like The Ventures but with a contemporary twang reminiscent of The Sadies. Their latest album “Fins Up!” was released in September 2023 and is packed full of psych-tinged salt-soaked barn burners. Atomicos have recently performed at festivals such as South Country Fair (Saturday night headliner in 2023) and the Allied Arts Council’s Upside Downtown concert series. 

Members include Tyler Stewart (also a member of Starpainter, Sparkle Blood, Foster Dollis) and Tyson Wiebe (Cope) on guitar, along with Chris Henderson (Facecut) on drums, and Nigel Derksen (Chief Mountain, Advertisement) on bass. Each has been an active part of the local music scene for over a decade.
