. Friday, June 26th IMU presents The MATINEE Tour Kick-Off Party with special guests COWBOYS AND INDIANS, DESERT RADIO & FERA @ The Railway Club, 579 Dunsmuir . Doors 9pm / Cover $10

The MATINEE is emerging as one of the West Coast's premier independent bands. Blending a passion for fine ale and finely crafted tunes, they offer a unique spin on a roots rock sound that is quickly attracting both national and international audiences. Writing songs that paint pictures of empty bottles and broken hearts, broken bottles and empty hearts, their collection of songs vividly comes to life. As they continue with their hard-nosed, DIY, blue collar work ethic, there is little doubt that this show is worth the price of admission. http://www.myspace.com/thematinee

COWBOYS AND INDIANS - Join one of Vancouver's newest folk rock country blues bands formed by Barnaby McRae, Daniel Huscroft & Ryan McAllister (former lead singer of the band Dakona) as they showcase tightly crafted Americana-roots style tunes for your drinkin' pleasure. Expect a full serving of timeless tales delivered with deeply emotive vocals soaked in Tennessee Whiskey and combined skillfully with steel & acoustic guitars and flourishes of harmonica that will transport you to a simpler time in the dusty past, a time of Cowboys and Indians. http://www.myspace.com/thecowboysandindiansband

DESERT RADIO's original combination of Americana, Classic & Southern Rock is the soundtrack of a road trip to Juarez in a '68 Dodge where Merle Haggard, The Who and Elvis Costello all play on the mix tape stuck in the dashboard deck. A few years ago, old friends were looking for an excuse to hang out, drink lots of beer and write some great, country-flavoured rock 'n' roll, and one thing led to another and they soon found themselves playing shows and recording tracks. "February Day" (from their recently released debut album) became the number one ranked Americana genre song in the history of garageband.com, leading to features on Budweiser.com as well as NASCAR's use of the track in a Speed Channel video tribute to Dale Earnhardt Sr. that was broadcast throughout North America. http://www.myspace.com/desertradio

FERA - Stephanie and Courtney Fera, twin sisters from a gifted Coquitlam musical family, are emerging as one of Vancouver's leading alt country rock duos. Playing guitar since the age of 8 and immersed in music ranging from the Everly Brothers to Fleetwood Mac, they found a sincere passion and ability for songwriting coupled with a drive to succeed. Their evocative lyrics and intricate harmonies are deservedly catching lots of attention on the West Coast -- and increasingly throughout Canada! http://www.myspace.com/feramusic
