SHADES OF GRAY - More likely to make immature jokes on stage than to strut rock star poses, the Shades mix rock with funk and a whole lotta love. You can expect Shades' music to tickle your insides and result in an uncontrollable desire to tap your feet, jump around, or sing along to your new favorite chorus. Tonight's release of "Rock 'n' Roll Powerhouse" represents the birth of the Shades' sixth studio release. The tradition has been upheld: another CD - another joke title. "So take what you can and give nothing back."

DREAMS OF TREASON - Raw intensity with amps turned to 11 & armed with the sole intention of rocking you, the band's modern classic melodic hard rock delivers up-tempo fire and soul-wrenching darkness. As founding members of the Vancouver Band Alliance, Dreams of Treason have become regulars on local TV show A New Rock Reality, which chronicles the lives of several Vancouver-based artists.

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.
