THE FEMINISTS - An energetic, engaging combination of angelic vocals along with jangle-punk guitar and driving, emotive keyboards, The Feminists bring together a powerful combination of unpredictable, loud, and exciting sound. Jet engine chaos is instantly replaced by fragile, delicate beauty before leaping back to frenzied distortion: power-pop meets art-rock meets psychedelia meets emo-core. One of Vancouver's hardest working indie bands, The Feminists have charted on college stations from Nanaimo to Halifax, toured across Canada without an agent, manager or record label support, opening for bands like The Weakerthans and NoMeansNo. http://www.thefeminists.net

PARLOUR STEPS combine anthemic rock, expansive space-pop, experimental jazz and electronica into a sound that is equal parts melody, rhythm, and epiphany. Their last album release "The Great Perhaps" is an electrifying statement of beauty and art showcasing drastic dynamic contrasts. http://www.parloursteps.com

The NEINS CIRCA formed in 2002 as the Neins, and quickly become a live staple in the Vancouver scene. Singer Cameron Dilworth spins tales about escaping the city, the much-overlooked importance of friendship, and the power of music. Currently finishing up their much-anticipated follow-up to their debut CD "Sunday Anthems" with producer Caleb Stull (Parlour Steps) at the helm, expect beautiful intellegent musical offerings this special evening. http://www.theneinscirca.ca

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

Parlour Steps

The October 2009 release of The Hidden Names by Nine Mile Records act Parlour Steps should finally put a spotlight on one of Canada’s most intriguing bands. “If there is an overall theme to be distilled it would be of the never-ending search for meaning and connection in today’s world,” Caleb Stull, the band’s founder, chief songwriter, ... more info

The Feminists (prog-rock / power-pop)

Power-pop meets prog-rock meets art-rock meets psychedelia meets emo-core equals Allyson Mara and three Token Males known to all as The Feminists. Gaze upon our work, ye mighty, and despair. more info
