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.
