Get your rock on with this spectacular line-up of some of Vancouver's best local bands as The Smears & Scatterheart throw down killer tunes from their brand new CDs this power-packed evening, joined by kick-ass guests Mongoose, Ready.Set.Die and the talented sultry ladies of Girls On Top Burlesque!

The SMEARS - The kind of material that The Smears turn out verges on alchemy, combining elements of old and new school punk & rock with undeniably beautiful melodies into intense, catchy punk-pop that's flooded with passion and emotion. Having released their first full length recording "Asthenic Process", they are finally ready to take their barely controllable live performance out into the world to inject some life back into an industry that has become tired, complacent, and irrelevant. Go, listen, observe, feel, think, sweat, and when you wake up the next day, prepare to spread the word. http://www.myspace.com/thevancitysmears

SCATTERHEART - A high energy, theatrical alternative/pop/rock quartet whose goal is to make fun, uplifting, catchy rock with a thoughtful and emotional message. While recording their debut CD at Vancouver's Fortissimo Sound Studios, Scatterheart was fortunate enough to recruit the amazing talents of Doug Fury (Bif Naked, Almighty Truth) on lead guitar. Also featuring Jesse Enright (guitar/vocals), Wes Deboer (bass) and Mike Southworth (drums), they've played many of Vancouver's best clubs (Media Club, Lamplighter, Backstage Lounge, Anza Club etc.) and created their own bi-monthly multimedia night called the Elastic Cabaret. Their electrifying music will cause your pulse to dangerously accelerate as the living soul is ripped from your scorched body, weather permitting! http://www.myspace.com/scatterheartband

GIRLS ON TOP: "Burlesque with Heart": The sexy and spectacular Girls on Top are a completely non-profit burlesque troupe, with all proceeds benefiting Vancouver Women's Charities. They will be gracing us with three performances of their particular brand of ecstatic erotica!

MONGOOSE - 4 hard working lads from East Van whose punk attitude and sonic assault of contagious and raucous garage punk rock has had them hailed as "the best live band in Vancouver!" (Nerve Magazine) and "In-freakin-sane Hives inspired alt-metal!" (Exclaim!). With their ability to write catchy songs, Mongoose has licenced songs to TV, snowboarding and mountain bike videos and movies, played over 180 shows, shared stages with Tricky Woo, Hedley, C'mon, The Furios, Billy and the Lost Boys, Faber and many more, while racking up over 84,782 km since late 2003 in a minivan called the EGG! http://www.myspace.com/mongooserocks

READY.SET.DIE - Like the punk-stained edge of a bloody rock and roll blade, Ready.Set.Die cuts into today's music scene with a knock-out punch to the face! http://www.myspace.com/homefornow
