LOWNOTE - Hailed as a massive and maniacal breathless, halting and artistic epic whirlwind by Exclaim!, Lownote formed in east van by a piano playing pessimistic who used to play in pub clearing bands. Soon he found musical co-conspirators and a violin virtuoso and nothing stood in the way of the artistic and kick ass domination of Lownote but their own ambitions. http://www.lownote.ca

ONE 11 ARCHER - Genuinely passionate and honest indie rock from Canada's west coast. Recently emerging from Hive Studios in Vancouver, BC, with their self titled debut CD, their combined energy continuously drives the band to find ways to expand and build upon their sound. http://www.oneelevenarcher.com

MAKE THE LION - Formerly known as Avatar, this band had audiences moving with rhythm-driven songs that dazzled and energized. Their versatile music falls somewhere between Radiohead and Nirvana, with touches of Sonic Youth and Pink Floyd. Be sure to catch the band in their newest incarnation as they play brand new tunes for your listening pleasure. http://www.makethelion.com

The R.A.F. - "Folk Punk From Outer Space" The RAF was co-founded by the Phillips brothers with lead singer David Phillips working together with his older brother since spring 2006 on a shared desire "to kick some ass and not be acoustic singer-songwriters." The band's solid line-up also features Sean Bingham, one of the most notorious bassists in the West Coast punk scene, and Steve Watts of In Medias Res behind the drum kit. http://www.myspace.com/rafband
