The DREADNOUGHTS - Ball-busting Celt-punk from Vancouver's beloved group of drunken misfits, with a shot of pirate-shanty, a shot of Irish melody and a triple-chaser of street punk. The result is a powerful live sound, with whirling fiddles, mandolins and accordions inviting you into a world of drink and debauchery. Storytelling lyrics sung with fiery urgency blur the lines between contemporary songs and traditional tunes, possessing all the confidence and muscle of a seasoned outfit in the prime of their career. Imagine Rancid had their tour bus hijacked by a group of inebriated gypsies and you're beginning to understand... be sure to come out and catch these young up-and-comers who opened for The Real McKenzies! http://www.myspace.com/vancitydreadnoughts

The WHISKYDICKS - Described as "one hell of a good time", The Whiskeydicks have spent the past few years carving a reputation for themselves throughout the Lower Mainland and as far away as the Yukon. What began as a couple of friends who enjoyed playing music together in front of the Deep Cove Liquor Store in North Van soon gathered momentum and a couple more members to become The Whiskeydicks as they are known today. Notorious for being a bit cheeky, their shows have been met with growing enthusiasm from audiences. With a couple of small tours and soon to be a second huge gig at the infamous Commodore Ballroom, The Whiskeydicks have just released their debut CD "I May Be Wasted". http://www.myspace.com/thewhiskeydicks

SEVEN O'CLOCK SCANDAL - Vancouver's newest Ska/Rock/Pop act is a 3-piece unit influenced by classic artists like Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, The Clash, Rancid, The Police and The Kingpins. http://www.myspace.com/7oclockscandal

MEXICAN DRUG PATROL - Formerly known as The HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS, Mexican Drug Patrol brings blazing electric desert surf rock to the clubs of Vancouver. The guitars of James Elwood and Ben Fussell do the talking, backed up by Tony Dallas on drums and the recent addition of Dave Wise of Fuzzcat on bass. The band is hard at work recording their first album, which will be stuffed to the gills with original instrumental rock tunes. http://www.myspace.com/mexicandrugpatrol
