PANURGE Internationally acclaimed Vancouver electro-folk-psych-pop outfit, with Brit-influenced guests The Beekeepers, Second and Octoberman. Saturday, April 9, 9 pm, The Railway Club (579 Dunsmuir Street), info

PANURGE: One of only two local shows during their nine-month studio hibernation.
"Panurge’s Throw Down The Reins is every bit as good as (Velvet Underground's) Loaded... do yourself a favor and go out and buy this modern
pop masterpiece now" (Best Albums of 2004 list) - Detroit Metro Times

BEEKEEPERS: Three embattled brothers and a disadvantaged cousin. A stubborn allegiance to the Kinks, the Who, and the Beach Boys. Songs about pork products, spelunking, and psychosis. First local show in six months.
"Spot-on harmonies, sweet hooks and stellar musicianship" - Exclaim Magazine

SECOND: Local fivesome, still in their teens, very likely to appeal to those who are fans of their heroes, Radiohead and Sigur Ros.
"There are some wonderfully subtle elements at play in these eight songs, like the cello that adds a touch of quiet-storm melodrama to “In One Footstep”, or the backward loops, shifting time signatures, and dissonant guitar lines of “Curses”. Second proves itself just as capable of rocking out on the angular “Pace Yourself”, which boasts stop-start rhythms and interwoven guitar melodies that any math-rock act would be proud to have conceived... These guys clearly have the chops and ambition to take them well beyond any slavish imitation of their heroes." -The Georgia Straight

OCTOBERMAN: Features Mark and Rob of local wunderkinds Kids These Days in a stripped-down acoustic set-up. First show upon returning from playing NYC, debut album to be released very soon.

Panurge have embarked on an unrelenting quest for sonic perfection. Walking in the Fog – the band’s third album – charts their invigorating pursuit of such elusive quarry.

Foursome with roots in Richmond. Diverse rock with a melodic and emotional edge. more info


Marc Morrissette becomes Octoberman when he lifts the guitar and utters some fragile melody that cracks between strums. The words he sings add up to decent stories, and his music has been compared to Jack Kerouac and Neil Young sharing a bottle of whisky. more info
