THE FEBRUARYS - With influences ranging from Taking Back Sunday to The Beatles and Nick Drake, The Februarys' atmospheric, experimental indie rock sound focuses on songwriting over volume. Garnering new fans at every show, their latest CD "Brighter Side of Things" runs the gamut from love songs to sad songs, songs about selling out, and comments on those who have a heightened sense of their intelligence due to their fixation on the daily news. http://www.thefebs.com

ELIAS delivers a stellar mix of dark, moody vocal melodies, original guitar riffs and haunting keyboards, "making the kind of pulsating, loud rock that the Mars Volta or Radiohead might approve of in equal turns" according to Spin.com, who recently ranked them as one of 8 must-hear bands from Vancouver. http://www.eliasband.com

FIELDS TO FLOOD - Based in Edmonton, Fields To Flood solidified their musical direction in their basement, finding an artistic onrush of melodic tones and confidence that took them on a successful Western Canadian tour and captured widespread interest. Blessed with tight and innovative guitar playing, highly disciplined drum work, and a well thought out lyrical sense, their customized take on ambient indie-rock is well worth seeing live. http://www.fieldstoflood.net

Orchid Highway (Psychedelic Rock)

“Trousers-deep in a rapturously ongoing obsession with mid-60s Britpop and psychedelia” Nerve Magazine “Take this grand, technicolor, psychedelic, rock and roll dragster out for a spin... what pop music CAN be when it isn’t being held hostage!” Radio Bandcouver “A dream come true to fans of Badfinger, or bands of more recent vinta... more info
