ANATHEMATIC - Formed by ex-members of THE NEW ACRONYMS, this 3 piece is influenced by British alternative, industrial trip hop and hardcore punk. Finding new pleasure in delivering hot sonic flavors to the ears of those starving in a stagnant musical wasteland, Anathematic has realized its true potential: playing diverse, dynamic alternative rock influenced by bands ranging from Radiohead and Muse to Nine Inch Nails and Massive Attack. Playing both originals and covers, Anathematic are intent on bringing a striking and innovative brand of rock music to Vancouver. http://www.myspace.com/anathematicband

The OUTLIERS sound is best described as a democratic roar, an eclectic offering from five musicians with often competing styles and influences from the past thirty years ranging from The Clash to The White Stripes.

Welkin is the brainchild of singer, songwriter, producer, guitarist and pianist Geoff Birch. For inspiration, Birch writes his songs in a cabin in the Cascade Mountains of BC. They will be performing many new songs as they prepare to record their 3rd full-length record. "Welkin deliver the kind of imaginative, deep and textured rock that is the perfect soundtrack for dreams of storming the castle, surfing that endless summer wave or simply sitting stoned alone in your backyard. Welkin genuinely seem to have their finger on the sedated pulse of the stoner rock culture." - 24 Hours http://www.welkinband.com

welkin (Art Rock)

'This Is Your Blood All Over Me', the title of welkin's 3rd record--a double-album epic opus steeped in the wilderness--evokes provocative images and importantly hints at the experiential process Geoff Birch uses to write welkin songs. Retreating to the backwoods of British Columbia and getting away from the city has certainly given Birch a richer ... more info
