ELEPHANT TRAIN - Now defunct, Elephant Train are returning for one final show to send their drummer back home to Ontario in style. This is your last chance to catch their funky, soulful, crazed rock with a glint of bubble-filled evil. Their enthusiastic performances touch on a wide variety of genres and styles, bringing out the boogie in people with their lickity-split havoc.

MY MOTHER THE CARJACKER - When MMCJ first started jamming, genre was thrown out the window and all that was focused on was letting their inner energies out to flow with each other. Together they aim to spread their wacky punk rock/psychedelic/bop to music lovers everywhere and have the time of their lives doing it!

BLACK SUGAR is a refreshingly exciting band among the latest crop of intelligent and imaginative hard-rock hopefuls emerging from Vancouver's bountiful music scene. Powered by the winning charisma and multi-octaved Cornellian pipes of lead singer Rob Krys, Black Sugar carves out a gripping and unique blend of prog-fusion chops and funk-tinged hard rock.

The HUTCHISON EFFECT - Intense, melodic and groovy, The Hutcheson Effect is a conveniently-timed supergroup composed of the scattered remains of many now-defunct local bands who've come together in the name of funk, jazz, rock and ass-shaking!
