Infernal hellraisers hellbent on howling horror converge on this sinister evening to cast a wicked spell that will have you ghoulishly grooving to irresistibly evil rhythms, even as you dance to your doom! Be sure to dress up and join our delightfully costumed sorcerers of sinister sound!

The FURIOS deliver an irresistible blend of ska, reggae, and catchy punk with solid, memorable vocals and empowering, danceable anthems that range from head bobbin' slow skanks to all out, full throttle, pedal-to-the-metal ska romps. Featuring a three piece horn section complemented by distinct songwriters and vocalists, The Furios shine the brightest when seen and heard live. The six piece band rocks, jumps, bumps and dances through set after set creating a party atmosphere that has made them a favorite with audiences. With 11 Canadian tours under their belt and dates on last year's Vans Warped Tour, The Furios have shared stages with The Real McKenzies, Fishbone, Bedouin Soundclash, The Planet Smashers, DOA, The Smugglers and many others.

The DREADNOUGHTS - Ball-busting Celt-punk from Vancouver's newest group of drunken misfits, with a shot of pirate-shanty, a shot of Irish melody and a triple-chaser of street punk. The result is a powerful live sound, with whirling fiddles, mandolins and accordions inviting you into a world of drink and debauchery. Imagine Rancid had their tour bus hijacked by a group of inebriated gypsies... and you're beginning to understand. Be sure to come out and catch these young up-and-comers who opened for The Real McKenzies!

FUZZCAT - Assembling like the five lions of Voltron, Fuzzcat unified into a tight music-making machine bringing thick beats and ass-shakin' rawk. Influences include Manu Chao, The Clash, Public Enemy, Fela Kuti and anyone else that brings a tear to the eye or a beer to the lips. You never know who will sit in or whose clothes may be shed. If you like shaking your ass and banging your head, come work it out with Fuzzcat.

RIO BENT - These 2004 Georgia Straight Reader's Choice Music Award winners are a young punk-rock-horrorbilly group who are passionately paying their dues on the Vancouver music scene. Allie's fierce lead vocals and bass playing are backed by strong guitar licks and hard-hitting drums, described by the Georgia Straight as sounding "like a teenaged No Doubt after drinking the blood of Rancid." The band's melodic high-energy sound ranges from driving rock ballads to real kick-in-the-teeth punk, with an occasional acoustic song thrown to keep things interesting. Passionate with dynamics to spare, their four-minute epics show that Rio Bent has graduated Songwriting 101 with honours.
