A blitzkrieg of explosive talent featuring 8 of Vancouver's best hard rock bands taking over Richard's on Richards for one night only! With 4 headliners including the tour kick off party for the Ten Ways From Sunday "Reach Out" tour, a music video shoot for Ready.Set.Die, the debut performance by Rod Burn's band Black Alley, and Glim Project's first show since their sold out CD release party last month, this is a packed evening of non-stop rock!

The GLIM PROJECT is a full out rock band, a unique, hyper-energetic mish mash that cannot easily be categorized in today's rock scene. Furious guitars loop around heavy percussive drumming, while galloping bass riffs cut right down the middle. Live, the band pours out every bit of energy they have in bringing their songs to life. http://www.glimproject.com

TEN WAYS FROM SUNDAY rocks to dizzying heights and incredible depths, with intense lyrics accenting high voltage rhythms and powerful music, creating a sound that is intensely dynamic and inspiring. Come party with the band at the kick-off for their "Reach Out" tour! http://www.tenwaysfromsunday.com

BLACK ALLEY - Featuring singer/songwriter Rod Burn (Sonic City, Burn Project), Black Alley plays explosive, passionate, straight to the point rock'n'roll, with an adrenaline-drenched sound that promises uncontrollable headbanging and fist-pumping good times! http://www.,yspace.com/blackalley

READY.SET.DIE - Like the punk-stained edge of a bloody rock and roll blade, Ready.Set.Die cuts into today's music scene with a knock-out punch to the face! http://www.myspace.com/homefornow

WAR OF THE MINDS - A heavy psychedelic assault on the senses with dark, dynamic guitars, drums and vocals that will transport you to an altered state of mind! http://www.myspace.com/waroftheminds

VOLTZ - Featuring the talents of E. Wrecked (Shocore) and alumni of Crystal Pistol and Europe's Parlament, Voltz fuses together in-your-face vocals and guitars with '80s synths and mind-bending hooks to form an exciting new retro-electro sound! http://www.voltzmusic.com

LTG - Combining memorable melodies, powerful lyrics and an aggressive rock sound, LTG delivers punches and subtleties with style and vigour. Their first single "Sickness" has been receiving radio airplay across Canada, including regular rotation on CFOX! http://www.ltgband.com

DAY RELEASE PROGRAM - Hailing from the three points of the Lower Mainland, The Day Release Program consists of four members (Matt Rose, Geoff Petrie, Peter Lemon and Aaron Mickiney) out to take the West Coast by storm! http://www.myspace.com/thedayreleaseprogram

Voltz (electro-pop)

Voltz consists of two androids: Enzomatic and Magatron. Together, they pump out some of the most shamelessly catchy, eighties-inspired, retro-electro dance music you’ll ever hear.
