The AWKWARD STAGE serves as a musical backdrop for those universal feelings of shame, inadequacy, anger, failure and loneliness. The brainchild of Vancouver-based Shane Nelken, The Awkward Stage delivers intelligent and brilliantly crafted pop songs. Their debut album on Mint Records, "Heaven Is For Easy Girls" was co-produced and engineered by New Pornographers' drummer Kurt Dahle. "Forget your age, forget you're clever; The Awkward Stage, it lasts forever."

HUGE MANATEASE - Formed by local music scribe Trevor Hargreaves (vocals, guitar), Iain W. Reeve (xylophone, melodica, cowbell, etc.), Natalie (vocals, keyboards, tambourine) and Juli (drums) one drunken night at the Railway, this new Rock-Glam-Shoegaze-Folk band will keep you entertained as you drink and dance in time to their solid rhythms and twistedly funny lyrics!

SPIRAL BEACH - "Outta-control art rock threats" Spiral Beach are a fearless rock 'n' roll band who've shared stages with bands such as The New Pornographers, Sloan, Hidden Cameras, Cuff The Duke and Minitour. Touring in support of their new album "BALL", this Toronto-based band is energizing national audiences with their showmanship and sophisticated songwriting. Their tunes are bipolar, swerving from ska-type syncopation and vintage Hammond organ bursts to sudden breakdowns of psychedelic guitar, from delicate new wave art pop to heavy stoner sludge. When the power-pop is this swingy and infectious, why not dance?
