CRYSTAL PISTOL - A full-scale epidemic of raw, potent and highly addictive rock 'n' roll, Crystal Pistol are Canada's answer to Velvet Revolver, with songs made of good old heavy rock'n'roll guitar riffs and touches of glam metal. Their followers and converts testify that a CP live show is like being greeted at Eternity's Gate, with earthly existence being blown away in guitar choruses that lift them up on wings. WARNING!!! this band is highly addictive and extremely hazardous to your health! http://www.crystalpistol.com

THE FLAIRS are a 21st century band ready to take the world by storm with their catchy, hook-laden rock songs harkening back to the days of '80s metal and punk, sweetly flavoured with female harmonies and a whole-lotta attitude. Featuring former members of Tuuli and Bif Naked's band, they skillfully blend youthful spirit and undeniable talent to unleash a sound they can truly call their own on an unsuspecting public hungry for living, breathing, punk-coloured hard rock with smart pop sensibilities. http://www.theflairs.com

BILLY + THE LOST BOYS have garnered fans across Canada with their unique blend of veraciously honest lyrics set against a backdrop of melodic, razor sharp riffs, blazing a trail through the all ages circuit and becoming known for their extraordinary on-stage enthusiasm. In the past year, Billy + the Lost Boys made appearances on MuchMusic's Going Coastal and MTV Canada's 969, and spent 13 weeks in rotation on MTV2. They won a place on the Vans Warped Tour, four Georgia Straight Readers' Choice Awards (Best Album, Best Band, Best Guitarist and Best Drummer), and their music has been used in shows like Joan Of Arcadia, Radio Free Roscoe, Degrassi and the Collector! http://www.billyandthelostboys.com
