GRASS CITY is a cathartic, foot-stompin' jug of musical moonshine -- soul-stirring Southern Doom Blues of the highest order. Their live show is a bruising, head-thrashing, tear-jerking experience that bulldozes the audience into heavenly oblivion with a thick Skynyrd-esque three-guitar assualt, scratched whiskey vocals and a Sabbathian worship of the Riff. It sounds like rock and roll savin' your soul, the sound of meat hittin' the grill. It sounds like goddamn GRASS CITY.

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 have shared stages with the likes of Jet, Kings of Leon, Ambulance Ltd, The Dirtbombs and The Zutons and "explode with a Stones/Small Faces onslaught that drips with jubilant passion, as well as very loud guitars played with giddy abandon" (Guitar Player Magazine). Michael Corcoran of the Austin American-Statesman extols the Lions as being "the first great band I saw this year at SXSW!"

CROP CIRCLE - Having played alongside bands such as ZZ Top, Cheap Trick, 54-40, Bif Naked, Todd Kerns, The Black Halos & Swollen Members, and handpicked to be part of Budweiser's True Music program, Crop Circle's melodic rhythms incorporate a garage band sound with early alternative rock. Their heavy guitar driven rock hit the top 5 on CFOX, earned the band a spot on the 2002 CFOX Seeds CD and became the #1 most requested song at Kelowna's Power 104! Be sure to come out this evening to sample tasty new tunes from their upcoming CD "Come Inside", produced by Todd Kerns! "Sean McCormick is the best singer I've recorded yet... a f#!*ing powerhouse!!!" - Todd Kerns
