. Friday, September 12th IMU presents EMPIRE, COLOURSURROUND, RAMPANT LION & SEARCH PARTY @ The Fairview, 898 West Broadway . Show 10pm / $10 cover

EMPIRE is a force of nature, a fast-paced, up in your face rock group from North Van. Their sound is rough, loud, grungy and spastic, bouncing through melodies and rhythms with a dirty energy and heavy punch. Distorted guitars and foot-stamping beats punctuate a singer swooning and screeching to their riled up audience. http://www.facebook.com/EmpireBandMusic

The SEARCH PARTY is a dynamic new female-fronted cover band spanning music from the 70s through the present day with a creative spin. Featuring skilled members of local bands like Coloursurround, their inventive sets range from Queen and The Police to The Racounteurs and Capital Cities. http://facebook.com/TheSearchParty604

COLOURSURROUND - Formed by three strung-out corporate dudes in suits who desperately needed an outlet, Coloursurround creates escapist music inspired by otherworldly bands such as Pink Floyd, Stone Roses, My Bloody Valentine, Smashing Pumpkins, Dandy Warhols, Radiohead and Jeff Buckley. http://www.facebook.com/pages/coloursurround/276991035661222

RAMPANT LION possesses a growing catalogue of dynamic songs featuring 3-part harmonies, hummable melodies and garage grunge post punk riffs in a sound that's familiar yet current, aggressive yet melodic, fun yet serious. Their new EP "Mirror Distortion" was recorded in Seattle with Jack Endino (Nirvana, Soundgarden) and features the raw, dynamic energy of the band in its purest form. http://www.facebook.com/rampantlionband

Rampant Lion (Grunge/Alternative Rock)

Rampant Lion is a Vancouver grunge band that started when three friends climbed into the attic of an old house and discovered a musical chemistry beyond the ordinary. Nicknamed “The Rampant Lion” after an old pub sign found in the alley, the house had been a gathering place for artists, writers, and musicians since the hippie days of the 1960... more info
