IMU presents CHINA SYNDROME CD Release Party w/ MIDNIGHT LIGHTNING Hendrix Tribute, PLACES WITH FACES & The STRANGE MAGIC @ The Railway Club, 579 Dunsmuir

CHINA SYNDROME is a melodic power pop band that combines driving pop hooks with elements of garage rock and new wave. Their new CD "Nothing's Not Worth Knowing" examines the struggle to achieve a work-life balance, the agony of micromanagement, and our obsession with work and social media at the expense of real relationships. Despite the dark subject matter, the album is musically bright as the band shows off a variety of styles from 70s Stones to angular funk grooves to psychedelia, augmented by aural surprises including pump organ, claves, Jew's harp and 80s synths. http://www.myspace.com/chinasyndrome

MIDNIGHT LIGHTNING - The pure musical genius of JIMI HENDRIX made him one of the most influential guitarists ever in modern music. Self-taught and left-handed, he perfected the deliberate use of distortion and feedback to complement his natural virtuoso ability while exuding unequaled charisma, raw talent and creativity to deliver some of the most revolutionary music of the 20th Century. Featuring Mike Zyke of The Unknown Soldiers, be sure to come out and take in this timeless music as Midnight Lightning deliver their loving tribute to the anthemic and transcendent Hendrix experience! http://www.myspace.com/518648330

PLACES WITH FACES ride with the currents, molding an adventurous path of discovery for the greater good. Their free-spirited music is inspired by Vancouver and the ocean, touching on ideas of truth, freedom and the vulnerability of life and love. Brought together by a string of fate, what was once an idea has now transformed into a full movement that portrays elements of beauty in their purest form. http://www.myspace.com/placeswithfaces

The STRANGE MAGIC - Vancouver psychedelic collective The Strange Magic runs the gamut from sunkissed psych pop and juggernaut rock-outs to gossamer balladry and everything in between. Featuring members of The R.A.D.I.O., Panurge, The Awkward Stage and Blackout Lights, the band made its debut with a Japanese tour and has since shared the stage with such stellar acts as Os Mutantes, Pointed Sticks, Shonen Knife and Susan Jacks (Poppy Family). http://www.myspace.com/thestrangemagic

China Syndrome (Rockin' melodic powerpop)

China Syndrome is a rockin' melodic power pop band from Vancouver, who combine the driving pop hooks of The New Pornographers, Teenage Fanclub and XTC with liberal dollops of 60s and 70s classic rock influences.
