64 FUNNYCARS - These rootsy Victoria-based power poppers from the late 80s/early 90s have recently reunited with their original lineup to thrill audiences old and new alike. They'll be playing a full-length set featuring songs from all of their releases plus some cool covers and even a few new songs. With college radio chart success and extensive touring alongside bands like The Buzzcocks, The Posies, The Skydiggers and Mojo Nixon, this is a show that's not to be missed!

WILDERNESS YEARS is a rock band übergroup from Vancouver with a stellar lineup featuring alumni of Jungle, Timber Kings, Magic Ass, Sister Lovers, Mazinaw, Papillomas, Rich Hope, Rodney Decroo, Carolyn Mark, Show Business Giants and numerous others... prepare to be amazed by songs from their fantastic new album, Pioneers!

BUDOKAN - Featuring former members of local legends BUM, The Smugglers and Show Business Giants, Budokan play hook-filled songs with loud guitars that they want people to love and remember. The Victoria-based band draws inspiration from all the classics but feel particularly indebted to the likes of Cheap Trick, The Ramones, The Stones and The Buzzcocks - y'know, the greats.

FRIDAY NIGHT ALL-STARS (formerly PRETTY VANILLA) - Combining punk and power-pop with elements of glam rock, this unabashedly baroque trio aims for nothing less than making infectiously catchy hooks and choruses. Ironically, this has made Friday Night All-Stars more visually arresting and musically distinguishable than most indie bands.
