STEPHEN HEDLEY - A relative newcomer to Vancouver's music scene, Stephen Hedley has already started to attract a growing and loyal fanbase with his intense and personal live performances. With an effortlessly soulful vocal style and guitar playing that incorporates elements of jazz, blues, rock and folk, Hedley crafts melodic pop songs that have a timeless quality to them. His unique brand of songwriting has earned comparisons to Jeff Buckley, Nick Drake, Badly Drawn Boy, John Mayer and Alan Price. http://www.stephenhedley.com

MAD SHADOW - Electric, charged and explosive, guitarist Danny Sveinson (also known as The Rock'n'Roll Kid and formerly of the recently disbanded Sonic City) was featured in a popular CBC Newsworld documentary. He inherited his love of classic guitar-rock from his dad's vinyl stash and by March of 2004 had became the youngest person to ever play the Commodore Ballroom, opening for Colin James. Be sure to check out his newest project Mad Shadow this special evening! http://www.therockandrollkid.com

THE BLUE ALARM (Cazart! Records) delivers a genuine Brit-rock sound that is spacy and delicate, with touches of folk, country and garage-rock influences. Wavering between rock and balladry with an eclectic range of pianos, keys and guitars fronted by Fraser MacKenzie's distinctively rich vocals, the Blue Alarm is a pop group that offers intriguing sounds and captivating lyrics. "As their swinging choruses leapt off the walls, I realized I was watching something ambitious unfold and got drawn into the emotion of it all& they are hard at work on their first indie release and I'll be first in line to pick it up." - Trevor Hargreaves, Chart Magazine http://www.myspace.com/thebluealarm

MATTHEW MEI - Having traveled the world as the son of a preacher man, Matt's initial introduction to the world of music was his dads classical, old blues and folk records, but it was his struggles in life and his soulful growth that fueled his desire to write emotional and heartfelt songs. Join Matt for his solo set tonight as he delivers a solid rock-folk excursion with bluesy undertones for your listening pleasure. http://www.matthewmei.com

TODD ALLEN's misspent youth was spent loitering outside the corner store with friends where they would drink soda pop and make fun of everything. Soon after high school he moved to Vancouver, and within months he'd landed a paying gig making people laugh by making fun of everything. Since then, Todd has recorded his own Comedy Now! special on CTV/Comedy Network and become a popular comic in clubs, perfoming on Just For Laughs and winning the 2003 Comedy Battle Of Alberta. http://www.toddallen.ca
