. Saturday, December 4th IMU presents XXXMAS HOOTENANNY! The MATINÉE w/ friends The GASTOWN ROYALS, TERMINAL STATION & The MILK PIPES @ The Railway Club, 579 Dunsmuir . Doors 9pm / Cover $10

The MATINÉE is emerging as one of the West Coast's premier independent bands. Blending a passion for fine ale and finely crafted tunes, they offer a unique spin on a roots rock sound that is quickly attracting both national and international audiences. Writing songs that paint pictures of empty bottles and broken hearts, broken bottles and empty hearts, their collection of songs vividly comes to life. As they continue with their hard-nosed, DIY, blue collar work ethic, there is little doubt that this show is worth the price of admission.

The GASTOWN ROYALS - Some of Vancouver's hardest working & partying Bourbon Pub staff deliver straight up contagious alt-country with sweet ass vocals, mouth harp, banjo, ukulele, guitars and percussion. Some of the band's many interests and influences include whittling, spittoons, rocking chairs, straw hats, horse drawn carriages, Clint Eastwood, scrappin'n'cussin, cornbread, neckin' (with their best gals of course), barroom brawling, homemade jam, bathtub gin and everything olde timey!

TERMINAL STATION take the traditional classic blues sound and kick it into high gear. Their music is raw and exciting - full of fat bass lines, explosive drumming, risk taking guitar solos and impassioned vocals. Featuring key players in Vancouver’s blues and roots scene, they've toured Canada and Europe, playing such festivals as the Calgary Folk Fest, Winnipeg Folk Fest, and the Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival while earning a reputation as a must see live act.

The MILK PIPES always drop the hammer on their original tunes with a joyful and reckless abandon. Three years, over 50 shows on, and with a new album almost in the can, The Pipes are having the kind of good time that can only come from within.They are a band of brothers who always share their beer... until it's the last one, then it's war. You'll hear them coming so stomp your feet or get the hell out of the way.
