Like A Martyr's debut full-length "The North" is a diverse collection of powerful and memorable rock tunes that range from raucous and exuberant to emotional and reflective. Come celebrate their CD launch with special guests Whitey, The Luna Riot, and fresh from their recent Canadian tour, Brown Sugar!

LIKE A MARTYR showcase a freight train of roaring guitars, thunderous vocals and pulsating rhythms combined with shimmering harmonies, memorable melodies and the lost art of the guitar solo. Their versatile sound is influenced by the raw power of Motorhead, the stripped-down blues of Muddy Waters, the primal stomp of the White Stripes and the swagger and conviction of Bruce Springsteen. Like A Martyr is an anxiety-driven neurotic, striving for perfection, drinking and laughing all the while, thumping, clapping, rejoicing, staggering and stomping to their rightful place in the rock n roll mosaic.
BROWN SUGAR - Singer Liam Mackenzie and guitarist Scotty B. Goode make you feel like there were two additional Allman Brothers left unaccounted for. Their band Brown Sugar sounds like AC/DC getting off the tour bus after listening to too much Black Crowes, all while living in the South on a sole diet of whiskey and Jack during the '60s and '70s!

WHITEY ignores boundaries and reservations, delivering a songwriting approach that has been described as "anything goes!" Bringing a little bit of everything to their sound: ska, metal, rock and even a touch of ballads to their energized live shows, the band has toured from coast to coast, playing in every type of venue from bakeries to haylofts, from middle school gyms to unforgettable Lions/Kinsmen Hall punk shows with such artists as DOA, The Tea Party, Stabilo and Holly McNarland.

The LUNA RIOT - Bathed in a wall of noise made up of atmospheric lush sounds, The Luna Riot is a rock and roll band whose songs of love, sorrow and life are influenced by psychotropics, the '60s, psychedelic philosophers and mod, Brit-influenced bands. With members from all over the local music scene, the combination of each bandmate's personal style has given The Luna Riot a unique sound that reflects a modern psychedelic state of mind while touching on some of the best elements of years past.
