A Haunted Halloween Happening! Come join us for a ghostly get together as some of Vancouver's most ghoulish rockers flaunt their brit-flavoured tastiness. Lost souls, zombies & mythological monsters of all ilks are welcome!

The TOP DRAWERS are not your typical Vancouver band. A full on throw back to times when the guitars were raunchy and the vocals had soul, the Drawers have all the swagger of the original '60s big beat revolution with a modern twist. With their keen knack for melody and their danceable and accessible sound, the Top Drawers are ready to make a serious splash in the Vancouver pond.

EMPIRE ALLEY - Armed with a unique combination of pop-rock, 80s punk and classical compositions, Empire Alley imparts pure emotion and raw energy. Within months of forming, rehearsing and recording a four track self-produced demo in their basement studio, the band entered and won the Factory Studios best band competition while their debut single "Orange Revolution" was played on CFOX. Their energized indie rock glimmers with flashes of Bloc Party, Stars and Metric, but it is their anthemic melodies, up-beat grooves and remarkable musicianship that set the band apart.

DAWNTREADER writes music that is full of unbridled sincerity and ambition. Their expressive, emotionally-charged song-writing traverses much terrain, from propulsive beats and grinding guitars to dreamy atmospheric passages and hypnotic melodies.
