PENDER is the musical equivalent of Neil Young's Crazy Horse and Wilco having a potluck with Nirvana and Evan Dando. A gathering of influences of country through punk rock, 80s synth to brit pop beats and a side of grunge for good measure served on unpretentious white paper plates. Named after the Vancouver street that's a backdrop for their musical and non-musical fun loving debauchery, vocalist Chris Kelly, guitarist Ryan Ogilvie, drummer Brett Galliford, keyboardist Lara Farcasan and bassist Derrek Kittson sizzle through a casual set that turns any scene into a fun party, combined with a sense of earnest vulnerability uncommon in today's modern rock. http://www.myspace.com/pendertheband

The NEINS CIRCA formed in 2002 as the Neins, quickly becoming a live staple in the Vancouver scene and touring with New Pornographer AC Newman. Singer Cameron Dilworth spins tales about escaping the city, the much-overlooked importance of friendship, and the power of music. Neins Circa is currently in the studio with Parlour Steps' Caleb Stull, recording songs for the much-anticipated follow-up to their debut CD "Sunday Anthems". http://www.theneinscirca.ca

The MATINEE - Blending captivating melodies with intricate harmonies, The Matinee is comprised of the dynamic duo of Matt Layzell & Matt Rose, who are emerging as one of Vancouver's finest songwriting teams. These talented songwriters use a raw, stripped-down approach to songwriting that creates simple and engaging sonic landscapes. Matt Layzell, who is also the lead singer of Ten Ways From Sunday, has honed his craft over the span of three studio recordings and countless miles of highway. Matt Rose has been playing guitar and writing songs for over a decade, and is also the lead guitar player in Fera. Having recorded and toured with numerous local projects, the duo are ready to take their distinctive sound to music lovers all around the globe. http://.myspace.com/mattrosemattlayzell

STEVE GROUT - A blend of melodic folk-rock and two-step genres influenced by classic icons such as Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Cat Stevens, Bruce Cockburn and Johnny Cash, Steve Grout delivers stories and insights on life and the people who surround him. The title track "Way to the Ground" represents a turning point in his life six months after a tragic accident that almost left him paralyzed, while "Before it Rains" is a sobering glimpse into his relentless pursuit towards physical recovery against all odds. http://www.stevegrout.com
