LIONS IN THE STREET create rock'n'roll that is fierce and genuine, invoking vintage Stones swagger and raunchy boogie rock 'n' roll with lean attack and ass-kicking rhythmic sense. Formerly known as The Years, the Lions are managed by 10th St Entertainment (Motley Crue, Blondie, Meatloaf). Praised by Magnet Magazine as being "what the Stones were, what the Dandy Warhols should've been," they've shared stages with the likes of Jet, Kings of Leon, Ambulance Ltd, The Dirtbombs and The Zutons.

The FLAIRS are set to take the world by storm with edgy, high energy pop-punk that harkens back to the days of '70s punk and '80s hair metal, sweetly flavoured with honeyed vocals over frayed power chords and frenzied beats. Featuring former members of Tuuli and Bif Naked's band, their latest CD "Shut Up And Drive" skillfully blends youthful spirit and undeniable talent, unleashing thier original sound on an unsuspecting public hungry for living, breathing, punk-coloured hard rock with smart pop sensibilities.

MASS UNDERGOE play dynamic, heavy, thoughtful alt/rock songs with reckless abandon for an ever-growing fanbase. Successful career highlights to date include regular MuchMusic & MuchLoud rotation, VideoFACT support, extensive cross-Canada touring and two sold out indie showcases for Toronto's 102.1 The Edge. With new music, a new EP and renewed energy, the band now features David Isbister (vocals), Alan Calimbas (guitar), Marino Mestrovic (bass) and Brandon Lazenby (drums). Rumours that they have joined the Black Parade are foundless, but they are brainstorming the Mauve Parade, a collection of elderly people dedicated to fighting crime through collective acts of grumbling and aggressive use of lavender.

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.
