Saturday, Nov 1st I.M.U. presents WHITEY, LEMMING DYNASTY & BLIND GOD . Early Show 8-11pm @ The Bourbon, 50 West Cordova . Early show 8-11pm sharp / Purchase advance tickets online @ imuproductions.com

WHITEY ignores boundaries and reservations, delivering a songwriting approach that has been described as "anything goes!" Bringing a little bit of everything to their sound: ska, metal, rock and even a touch of ballads to their energized live shows, the band has toured from coast to coast, playing in every type of venue from bakeries to haylofts, from middle school gyms to unforgettable Lions/Kinsmen Hall punk shows with such artists as DOA, The Tea Party, Stabilo and Holly McNarland.

LEMMING DYNASTY isn't afraid to punctuate their craft with tight arrangements, searing harmonies and riff-heavy bottom grooves. Slick grooves sauced in social outrage meet haunting melodies peppered with a sly irony reminiscent of times when leaving a little to the imagination was as classy as it is classic. One hears elements of grimy '70s funk, dirty grunge, electro punk and progressive jazz. In an era where retro is getting old again and dusty tracksuits grace the covers of sarcastic new wave magazine covers, Lemming Dynasty are out to create the very thing that seduced them in the first place – great rock songs.

BLIND GOD is a bluesy, duo whose sound has been compared to a wide range of artists from Ben Harper to Massive Attack. They've played together for over 6 years, filling rooms and captivating audiences with their dark sound and beautiful, honest lyrics. Drummer Ray Garraway, who tours and records with multi Juno award winning hip-hop artist K-OS, has been called a genius, and gets the crowd going with his unmatched beats! Dave Olajide's sweet guitar riffs and clever lyrics command attention and make you feel as though you are starring in a Quentin Tarantino movie!

If it’ll make your body move, Whitey will play it. Sporting some of mainland BC’s most talented and sought-after musicians, Whitey’s members can also be found melting ... more info
