WHITFIELD's musical roots are entwined with the UK alternative rock culture and possess a charming quality that combines sparkling soundscapes with powerfully layered dynamics. With haunting swells, high-pitched overtones, and lyrics of significance and beauty, Whitfield engulfs the listener, being heralded as "The Best Band You've Never Heard" by The Kamloops Omega.

ORCHID HIGHWAY's madly energetic and colourful stage show incorporates elements of Brit Pop and 60's beat pop. Be sure to catch the band's much awaited return to the local live scene (after disappearing from Vancouver's stages for over a year!), brandishing fan favs and a catchy batch of brand new psychedelic pop tunes that will have your toes a-tappin' and heads a-boppin'!

CINDERPOP play inventive, harmony-drenched, guitar-driven power pop. Featuring alumni of Moev, SK Robot, The Salteens and others, their eclectic sound combines free-floating vocals with dreamy melodies and pulsing guitars to great effect. Their debut "Violet Gamma Rays" charted on college stations across Canada and the U.S., and their latest CD "Their Skies Are Beautiful" continues the journey. From pastoral to distorted, whimsical to melancholy, Cinderpop returns with another fine set of songs to sail through.

SHUKOV - One of Vancouver's most promising new bands, Shukov brings their spacious, tension-filled, darkly ethereal art rock to enthusiastic audiences around the Lower Mainland in preparation for their forthcoming CD.

Shukov began in a bedroom during the winter of 2004. Leigh Denholm holed himself up and slowly began experimenting and writing songs. After growing frustrated with attempts to form a band to play these new creations, he opted to go into the studio and craft his songs, and worry about who would play them later. Hejira drummer Tim Rich was entrust... more info
