Saturday, August 7th:

THE GENTLE INFIDELS: With a series of handmade guitars, a fretless bass and a cello, The Gentle Infidels offer a unique take on contemporary folk music. They draw influence from Led Zeppelin and The Tea Party, Burt Jansch and Leo Kotke. The Gentle Infidels take the energy of a symphony and compress it down into three instruments.

DANNY ECHO: “Yet another local (Vancouver) band that seems to have appeared out of nowhere, Danny Echo has a sense of drama... It also defies labels and eras, owing a little something to the various influences from the 1970s onward, yet defiantly apart. Danny Echo might be an example of the band described by what it isn't. Not punk, post-wave, emo, Britpop etc., but with appealing vocals and instrumentation that develops.” - The Province
ARCTIC: Haunting and moody with a hypnotic groove, ARCTIC conjures up chilly northern landscapes and intensely rich, layered space rock with their unique blend of electronic & acoustic sound that's been called "Metric meets Neil Young" and "ethereal art-rock akin to Radiohead or Fleet Foxes".
WE LANDED ON THE MOON!: Sounds like Blondie if Blondie hadn’t spent the last half of their career covering island kitsch or trying to rap. Combines sizzling guitars and thumping heartbeat rhythms balanced by Eccles’ expressive vocals and melded together with the subtle touches of handclaps, harmonies and fender rhodes piano. Chock full of trademark catchy hooks and the band’s flair for the dramatic, the result will rattle in your headphones like a big dancey washing machine.
Doors: 8:30 pm $10

Danny Echo (VanPop)

With life spinning out of control on tour in the UK as "The Ryecatchers", Danny and Mark decided it was time for a change... Returning to Vancouver, Danny bumped into an old flame, Shannon, and after a few drinks she decided she would rather be in a band than a relationship with him. Danny reluctantly agreed, phoned Mark, and formed Danny Echo i... more info

ARCTIC (Acoustic Looping POP)

ARCTIC began as a solo expedition from the North, but has expanded into a cross-Canadian adventure. The project emerged from frontman Marcus Martin's desire to never, ever be in another band again. After a childhood spent on the land in the isolated Northwest Territories of Canada, the guitarist travelled to the metropolis of Toronto and became ... more info
