Madness at Pub 340 with Fuzzcat, Waltz Darling & Closely Watched Trains for Cinco de Mayo!

FUZZCAT - Vancouver's funk-filled reggae rock attack, Fuzzcat has been exploding Western Canadian dance floors since 2006. Assembling like the five lions of Voltron, Fuzzcat unified into a tight music-making machine, delivering thick beats and ass-shakin' rawk. Their harismatic, high-energy performances have drawn comparisons to bands like the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Sublime, but their diverse influences range from hip-hop to punk.Danceable rhythms, infectious lyrics and provocative musical arrangements have earned them a growing reputation as one of the West Coast's most exciting emerging bands.

WALTZ DARLING have entertained local audiences for years with their crazy musical journeys. Sustained by their passion for all styles of music, their Eastern European roots have always been woven into their songs. Atila is Hungarian while his cousin Robert hails from just across the Serbian border. Their disagreements are the stuff of legend and high comedy. Rich's background is Polish and German, while Michael's grandparents were Russian Jews who ran from pitchfork-wielding neighbours. Their simmering Slavic emotions facilitate both colourful arguments and renewed artistic inspiration: this music is in their blood and always has been in one form or another since childhood.

CLOSELY WATCHED TRAINS - It's dawn again. Bright light on weary eyes through the truck's dirty windshield. There's a touch of adventure in spending days behind the wheel crossing this great continent of ours, picking up hitchhikers who don't talk for hundreds of miles. Closely Watched Trains build their sound on lives like this -- lives full of heartbreaking country ballads and bawdy blues stomps. From Alabama all the way to Edmonton, this roots music duo brings authenticity, dedication, and above all passion to their songs. Mixing poignant originals and dusty covers, Closely Watched Trains are not to be missed!
