THE MANVILS - This talented quartet delivers an intense, unrivalled live show with scorching guitars and bellowing vocals that merge into a modern take on the psychedelic blues sound pioneered by The Yardbirds, Velvet Underground and the Stones. Having shared the stage with prestigious bands including The Stereophonics, The High Dials, They Might Be Giants and Brian Jonestown Massacre's lunatic frontman Anton Newcombe, The Manvils enthusiastically abandon themselves to intoxicating rock liberation, converting new initiates to their ever-growing legion of fans every time they take the stage. http://www.themanvils.com

TOP DRAWERS are not your typical Vancouver band. A full on throw back to times when the guitars were raunchy and the vocals had soul, the Drawers have all the swagger of the original '60s big beat revolution with a modern twist. With their keen knack for melody and their danceable and accessible sound, the Top Drawers are ready to make a serious splash in the Vancouver pond. http://www.myspace.com/thetopdrawers

The FILIGREES - This 2 man blues-driven rock and roll band focuses on tightly crafted feel-good music! Influenced by Neil Young, Kings of Leon and the Rolling Stones, the band has been favourably compared to Black Mountain and Wolfmother, and promises to blow the roof off with their original blend of rockin' bluegrass heart and soul. http://myspace.com/thefiligrees

The TOP DRAWERS are right up the alley of anyone who's a fan of edgy, bluesy British Invasion bands like The Yardbirds, Pretty Things and Rolling Stones. Sounding like some long-lost band that would have been tearing up London clubs in the summer of 1966, The Top Drawers are all about energy and good old-fashioned musicianship. more info
