NINJASPY - It was a whirlwind ride through 2009 for Vancouvers NINJASPY. After signing to Japanese label Zestone Records, the band enjoyed a Canada-wide tour, a personal invitation to perform at Warped Tour in Vancouver by founder Kevin Lymon, an appearance at Taste of Chaos in Calgary, and numerous spins on MTV Canada and Absolute Underground TV. The band traverses extremes both fierce and melancholy, creating manic and maniacal raw live shows drawing from genres including ska, funk, grunge, reggae and post hardcore. Their potent sound, skilled musicianship, energetic shows and sense of style combine into explosive performances of unique and challenging music.

AT TIMES OF MADNESS - These four Kelowna dirtbags came together in 2007 as the bastard spawn of several other Okanagan metal/punk/stoner rock bands. Dedicated to keeping their sound fresh, aggressive, epic, intelligent, progressive and spastic, they continue their conquest to destroy the province and spread the disease eastward...and eventually to a global infection. From moments of grindcore chaos to sweeping, epic movements, ATOM has a little to offer everyone.

FREEDOM IN FEAR are an up and coming Vancouver band that blends totally unique styles together into an original and contagious sound. Influenced by everything from politics to the weather, they write the kind of songs that they want to hear.

UNDERLION are a new punk/thrash/hardcore trio who rip it up like big game cats, with relentless, rhythmic guitar, bass so busy it makes you wish you took math, hard hitting, fast, dynamic drums and shared vocal duties creating a very unique dynamic. One of the most energetic bands in Vancouver, Underlion is a band worth seeing -- you'll party, drink, laugh, and rock out to the music as they lay it all down.
