CRYSTAL PISTOL - A full-scale epidemic of raw, potent and highly addictive rock 'n' roll, Crystal Pistol are Canada's answer to Velvet Revolver, with songs made of good old heavy rock'n'roll guitar riffs and touches of glam metal. Their followers and converts testify that a CP live show is like being greeted at Eternity's Gate, with earthly existence being blown away in guitar choruses that lift them up on wings. WARNING!!! this band is highly addictive and extremely hazardous to your health! http://www.crystalpistol.com

UNDERRIDE - Drawing influences from the long tradition of American heavy rock including Aerosmith, Guns-n-Roses, Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots, and Velvet Revolver, UNDERRIDE's metal and punk sound embodies the edge and attidtude of rock and feeds your appetite for distortion. Having established a reputation for excessive live performances with proof that huge guitar riffs and larger-than-life vocals will never go out of style, the band is one of Seattle's top draws, and has performed with bands that include L.A. Guns, the Bulletboys, Soil, Faster Pussycat, Great White, Static-X, Trust Company, and Duff McKagen's Loaded. A unique metal band that delivers an unforgettable show, "Underride are one of the most underrated bands in the country." - Sleaze (Sleazegrinder) http://myspace.comunderrideseattle

THE PRICE OF DRUGS THESE DAYS IS THROUGH THE ROOF - Formed by some of Vancouver's most venerated musicians, the band consists of JJ Blood on guitars and vocals, Graham on guitar, keys and vocals, Mitchell on bass and vocals and Tim "The Madman" Huston on drums and various noises. Influenced by classic rock, punk and metal, you can expect the band's explosive riffin' rockin' genre-bending sounds to sear your eardrums and rock your ass soundly. http://www.myspace.com/thepriceofdrugsthesedaysisthroughtheroof

MURDER CITY SPARROWS - From stories of killers in Omaha to the lives of Elvis and Priscilla, this "Texas Punk" band is raw and loud as hell. Produced by Gordie Johnson (Big Sugar, Grady) at Willie Nelson's legendary studio, Pedernales (Austin, Texas), Murder City Sparrows created a real rock sound with none of that fancy overdub crap. They bring their no bullshit attitudes and blunt force (like a bottle across the head) to the stage at every show. Want a hit? http://www.murdercitysparrows.com

Crystal Pistol (Rock and Roll)

Crystal Pistol's effect on the local music scene has become a fullscale epidemic. Since forming in February of 2002, they have escalated from a small club band into an event that fills a bar passed capacity. Large numbers of club-goers have become incessant repeat business, showing up to gigs in bigger and bigger groups.....The band has all of th... more info

Murder City Sparrows

Once upon a time, in his own personal hell, Jay Sparrow decided his fate. You learn a lot about yourself while lying on a bathroom floor with the bottle of Jack Daniel’s still in your hand. After doing a solo record and still feeling empty he needed something more… More whiskey? Maybe, but why not start with finding a band? Besides, four s... more info
