THE NO NO SPOTS are making a big splash in the local scene, earning themselves much-coveted supporting spots with The Killers and Tegan & Sara. Caustic, sexy and naughty songs from a girl-driven band with an '80s-flavoured style that's been favourably compared to PJ Harvey and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. (11:45pm) http://www.nonospots.com

ELIZABETH - Following in the steps of bands like Joy Division and Interpol, Elizabeth's fevered, intense, raw and emotional live shows have already garnered the band stage space with bands like Franz Ferdinand, The Organ, TV On The Radio & The Libertines. (11pm) http://www.elizabethelizabeth.ca

The MACHINES - Born from the ashes of The Candidates (an Ontario band that played with many top rock acts including The Walkmen, The Illuminati, Death From Above 1979 and Brian Jonestown Massacre), The Machines' arsenal of catchy, energetic new material and shared love of rock 'n' roll from garage to power-pop promises to excite and enslave audiences from coast to coast! (10pm) http://www.myspace.com/themachines

The OUTFIT's frenzied, polyrhythmic rock sound is memorable and exciting: clever pop songwriting flavored by layers of instrumental melodies and backed by inventive, danceable rhythms. They've earned a dedicated following in Toronto by playing consistently fun and frantic live shows, including a recent opening spot for The Killers. (9:15pm) http://www.myspace.com/theoutfitlivE

ORCHARDS & VINES reveal a rich, dark musical territory of compelling songs and lyrics, with powerful, dynamic female vocals fronting raw, intense guitars and drums. Their explosive modern sound invokes the incendiary vibe of artists like Led Zeppelin, Radiohead, Jeff Buckley and Nirvana. (8:30pm) http://www.ovweb.com

No No Spots (ELECTRO POP ROCK)

The No No Spots are a band from Vancouver, enticing the ears of anyone who have heard their music. The band has taken the regularly frustrating and sometimes path of carving out a cultural niche in the city of Vancouver's music scene. There is a retro new wave twist which brings nostalgia to some and a catch-up lesson to those born too late. One by... more info

Elizabeth (COMBAT ROCK)

Elizabeth came out swinging with their debut album First Excommunications in 2007. Made up of fraternal twin brothers (front man Reggie Gill and drummer Paul Gill), guitarist Davor Katinic, and bassist Rory O’Sullivan, the band grew up in the suburbs of Vancouver.
