Presented by: JFK Productions, Northern Electric
JFK Productions and Northern Electric are pleased to present the Rock ‘N’ Roll Winter Classic Triple Header Blast!

This can’t miss line-up features performances by all-star fuck band JFK, Vancouver’s first punk band the Furies, up and coming pop rockers the Furniture, and Hula Hoopin’ with Shannon.

Featuring luminaries of the local scene, JFK pays homage to the fuck band phenomenon of the '80s and performs classic selections of Vancouver and international punk, rock ‘n’ roll and rockabilly. Joined by a host of celebrity guest vocalists, including: Paul McKenzie (Real McKenzies, Enigmas), Aramis Starfish, Dennis Mills (Jazzmanian Devils), Eddy Dutchman (Liquor Kings), Dennis “the Reveller” Brock, Nancy D, and more.

JFK itself is comprised of Vancouver all-stars. Collectively boasting a rock ’n’ roll resume that speaks for itself, JFK is: Brian Goble (Subhumans, D.O.A., Rude Norton, the Trespassers), Bob Beaudine (Mud Bay Blues Band, Frank Frink Five, Buddy Selfish), Joe Rotundo (Bughouse 5, the Modelos), Mike Van Eyes (Trespassers, the Epics), and Kevin Keating (JP5, Kreviss).

Gracing the historic stage in a rare performance, Vancouver’s first punk band the Furies (Chris Arnett (the Shades), Taylor Little (the Shades, Payolas) and John Werner) played their first show in ’77 (one of only nine!), which served as inspiration for many of the musicians they’ll be sharing the stage with to create seminal punk bands of their own. Veterans of the music scene, the Furies are living history.

The Furniture is self-described as “pop music made in a dirty garage; imagine if the Pixies were to jam with Nirvana.” The band features the Railway Club’s own Johnny Wildkat (Mongoose, Tiger Prawn, D. Trevlon Band), Lana Ryma (LanaLou’s) and Aramis Starfish. With undeniable style, strong melodies and indie rock sensibilities, the Furniture is the future of pop.

Doors at 8:30, show at 10pm.

Tickets $10 at the door.
