DANNY ECHO - Since the formation of Danny Echo, the Vancouver music scene has embraced the vibe of their rock and rollio presence. With influences drawing from greats like the Rolling Stones, The Who, The Beatles, Radiohead, Oasis and U2, Danny Echo reverberates with all that is melodic, all that is catchy, and all that is rock and roll. With bucketloads of experience in the music and film industries under their belts, they've taken their songwriting, recordings, and live shows to the next level, with smoke machines, projectors, smoking guitars and fire extinguishers (?!!) enhancing the visual assault of their gigs. Their catchy tunes have been implanted in a number of media outlets including Cold Squad, Just Cause, Show Me Yours, Saint Monica, CBC and MuchMusic. Be sure to come out and celebrate Danny's birthday with a great psychedelic indie-rock send-up and a pint or two with the man himself! http://www.dannyecho.com

The POLISHED ROCKS play inspired original psychedelia and dirty garage rock featuring an organ, manic depressive lyrics, ample guitars, catchy bass, feral drums, occasional sitar, painted mannequins and trippy homemade overhead projections made from oil and food colouring! http://www.myspace.com/thepolishedrocks

CINDERPOP play inventive, harmony-drenched, guitar-driven songs that range from orch-pop and space rock to bouncy Beatlesque powerpop. Featuring alumni of The Salteens, Moev & SK Robot, their eclectic sound combines free-floating vocals with dreamy melodies and pulsing guitars to great effect. Having performed with artists such as Stereolab and Sloan, Cinderpop are taking things further and farther out with their new album "A Lesson In Science", which will be debuted live this special evening. "Cinderpop mines the orch-pop territory and makes it sound new, fresh. Kinda like The Left Banke meets The Zombies with XTC... It's all wickedly cool!" -- Soul Shine Magazine http://www.cinderpop.com

Showcasing stratospheric rock with soaring vocals and euphoric guitars, Orchards & Vines reveal a rich musical territory of mind expanding songs. Their original psychedelic sound has been praised by popular music sites like Napster, Audiogalaxy and About.com's Alternative Music Guide with glowing reviews invoking silvery waves and other worlds. Don't miss the long awaited live return of O&V featuring new songs and classics, on a fantastic bill with some of Vancouvers best psych pop bands!

Danny Echo (VanPop)

With life spinning out of control on tour in the UK as "The Ryecatchers", Danny and Mark decided it was time for a change...
