KARMETIK UNDERGROUND - Sonically combining the east, the west, the above and the below, the Karmetik Underground cleverly creates an ethnically diverse musical tapestry, often incorporating traditional Indian instruments such as sitars, tablas and santoors with state of the art synthesizers, samplers, and sequencers. Their electroganic tribal dance grooves are influenced by Talvin Singh, Phish, The Chemical Brothers and Sound Tribe Sector Nine to name a few, and all KU's members studied under masters in India, bringing their eastern influence infusion to organic dance music. http://www.myspace.com/karmetikunderground

ORCHID HIGHWAY's madly energetic and colourful stage show incorporates elements of Brit Pop and 60's beat pop. Be sure to catch the band as they brandish fan favs and a catchy batch of brand new psychedelic pop tunes that will have your toes a-tappin' and heads a-boppin'! http://www.orchidhighway.com

MARK OF THE BEATS - Vancouver's one-man laptop-based smorgasbord of sound! Mark of the Beats' live shows range from spontaneously-remixed DJ sets to intimate acoustic singalongs, complete with freestyling, costume changes, extended guitar solos and food fights. Don't miss your only chance to catch him live in his natural habitat before he moves to Pentiction for a new job in radio. Strong rhymes, blown minds, good times! http://www.markofthebeats.com
