The SWILLS are an exciting new rock band from Vancouver. Combining killer heavy riffs with catchy melodies, kick-ass rhythms, and songs that actually have something to say, The Swills are the perfect solution to the mundane modern rock blues! http://www.myspace.com/theswills

The SICKS fuse a wide array of genres to create their own unique form of Rock'n'Roll. Their distinct, memorable songs capturs a simple, positive sound that makes you want to get up and move. Two guitarists trade licks in a style reminiscent of the Stones, and each song is infused with Animal-worthy drums and steady bass chops that draw from the reggae and rock world. With meaningful lyrics that relate to everyday experiences and soulful vocals that convey raw power and energy, their diverse backgrounds and influences forge a sound that can really be put in a class by itself. http://www.myspace.com/thesicksmusic

AMMONIA STARS deliver a lyrical blend of classic styles mixed with futuristic and hybrid sounds built on a foundation of solid pop song construction. Favourably compared to David Bowie, early Radiohead, The Verve, Muse and other British acts, some would coin their sound as a creative blend of art rock and progressive rock, with influences including Radiohead, The Cure, The Smiths, The Police and many others. Ammonia Star's debut album was recently recorded at Greenhouse Studios, so be sure to come out and hear the band's newest tunes this special evening! http://www.myspace.com/ammoniastars
