. Saturday, September 12th IMU presents The CHASE, WHITEY, LIKE A MARTYR & LEMMING DYNASTY @ The Railway Club, 579 Dunsmuir . Doors 9pm / Cover $10

The CHASE strives to show that retro rock doesn't have to sound like something you've already heard. With great songs, an energetic, charismatic stage presence and an innovative sound that is as original as it is classic, they've quickly proven themselves a force to be reckoned with in the Vancouver music scene. Anyone who sees their live show will recognize that they are the real deal and know that nothing can get in their way. The Chase is on! http://www.myspace.com/wearethechase

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. http://www.myspace.com/whiteycanada

LIKE A MARTYR showcase a freight train of roaring guitars, thunderous vocals and pulsating rhythms combined with shimmering harmonies, memorable melodies and the lost art of the guitar solo. Their versatile sound is influenced by the raw power of Motorhead, the stripped-down blues of Muddy Waters, the primal stomp of the White Stripes and the swagger and conviction of Bruce Springsteen. Their debut full-length "The North" is a diverse collection of powerful and memorable rock tunes that range from raucous and exuberant to emotional and reflective. Like A Martyr is an anxiety-driven neurotic, striving for perfection, drinking and laughing all the while, thumping, clapping, rejoicing, staggering and stomping to their rightful place in the rock n roll mosaic! http://www.myspace.com/likeamartyr

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. http://www.myspace.com/lemmingdynasty
