MATTHEW MEI WITH YOU BRIGHT MINDS - Matthew Mei is a regular performer at local venues around Vancouver, brandishing a charismatic blend of blues, rock, folk and hip hop. Drawing from childhood exposure to folk, gospel and church music along with later preferences for blues, alternative and jazz, Matt has developed his sound to blend those musical influences with the highs and lows of the human experience.

The MILK PIPES - Sounding like a '63 Impala comin' sideways around a corner on two wheels, The Milk Pipes always drop the hammer on their original tunes with a joyful and reckless abandon. Tube amps and classic guitars slash against the solid punch of a rhythm section born to serve the song while keys and ukes underpin the whole cacophony with delicious counter melodies.

SOMETHING PAISLEY are four friends using their individual influences and tastes in music to fuse their own brand of rock that they like to call "alternative hippie". Their Byrds-inflected psychedelic country-rock has opened the door for solid shows and good times.

MY DEAREST FRIENDS - The stirring sounds of My Dearest Friends fall somewhere between The Beach Boys and Portishead, a 1950s burger joint with rollerskates and Radiohead b-sides blaring out under the covered parking lot. Like all great art, it's indescribably focused, beautiful and irreverent, music that undeniably needs to be heard. Right. Now.
