CRYSTAL PISTOL - Addictive, contagious, dangerous & sexy, this 4 piece beats a path of destruction and takes you straight to rock'n'roll hell! A full-scale epidemic of raw, potent and highly addictive rock 'n' roll, Crystal Pistol are Canada's answer to Velvet Revolver, with songs made of good old heavy rock'n'roll guitar riffs and touches of glam metal. Their followers and converts testify that a CP live show is like being greeted at Eternity's Gate, with earthly existence being blown away in guitar choruses that lift them up on wings. WARNING!!! this band is highly addictive and extremely hazardous to your health! Abandon all hope for your soul and be sure to come out and hear CP's newest tunes, as well as your rawkin' favs this evening!

SOMA CITY WARD is a hard rock quartet poised to bring new flavour to the local music scene while maintaining a balance between mosh-worthy and radio-friendly. Signed to Bodog Music, their music has an explosive rock core with heavy guitars and melodic vocals adding depth and power to the songs. Drawing inspiration from Hendrix to Metallica, old school edgy hard rock attitude to the energy of today's new metal sound, Soma City Ward has an intense live sound that is receiving rave reviews at every turn, slaying audiences and leaving them wanting more.Watch for their debut CD "The Bed I Made", coming soon!

FIGHTING FOR ITHACA's contagiously energized bouncy rhythms and hooky vocals are backed with solid live harmonies and a stage show that features intensely aggressive vocals. Tired of generic, outdated sounds in the local scene, frontman Curtis Steeksma searched desperately for musicians with more adventurous musical tastes. After an extended search, he found his bandmates: guitarist Ryan Pulfer, bassist Tommy Phoenix and drummer Curtis Mathias. When vocalist friend Patty joined the melee, the band's instant chemistry was cemented and has already begun to find its niche in the Vancouver scene.

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.
