MONGOOSE - 4 hard working lads from East Van whose punk attitude and sonic assault of contagious and raucous garage punk rock has had them hailed as "the best live band in Vancouver!" (Nerve Magazine) and "In-freakin-sane Hives inspired alt-metal!" (Exclaim!). With their ability to write catchy songs, Mongoose has licenced songs to TV, snowboarding and mountain bike videos and movies, played over 180 shows, shared stages with Tricky Woo, Hedley, C'mon, Los Furios, Billy and the Lost Boys, Faber and many more, while racking up over 84,782 km since late 2003 in a minivan called the EGG! http://www.myspace.com/mongooserocks


OPERASTRIKE - A wild amalgamation of surf, metal, r&b and country themed songs, Operastrike's prime specialty is no frills, aggressive rock and roll, which suits them just fine. Featuring two members of A Thousand Year Plan, they've just released their self-titled debut album on Hand Over Fist Records. http://www.myspace.com/operastrike


The AFTERTASTE - With a perfect blend of savage guitars, melody, scathing lyrics and fantastic 3-minute pop arrangements, The Aftertaste are four Vancouver musicians looking to leave modern rock shirtless, penniless and begging for more by the side of the road. Acid-soaked blues and high octane power pop are put through the grinder and spat out as demented tales of substance abuse, sexual deviancy and love gone seriously wrong. Stories of excess and schizophrenia somehow become irresistible singalongs when wrapped in the infectious riffs and melodies spun out by the foursome. http://myspace.com/theaftertastevancouver

The OUTLIERS sound is best described as a democratic roar, an eclectic offering from five musicians with often competing styles and influences from the past thirty years ranging from The Clash to The White Stripes. Ultimately, the band's diversity forms a cohesive and modern sound -- one that wagers its success and credibility on their common objective to redefine rock n' roll. http://www.myspace.com/theoutliers

Aftertaste (Metal)

A driving force in the Edmonton music scene, Aftertaste shines above the crowd as an unbridled force of pure, adrenaline fueled rage. A gut wrenching wall of distorted guitars (Doug Parlog), pounding bass (Mike Chartrand), and precision drumming (Dale Gare), are at once enhanced by nearly inhuman screams, and counterbalanced by deep, sweeping vocal... more info
