Be sure to catch the Real McKenzies' Ceilidh homecoming show on the Mexican Day of the Dead (Dia De Los Muertos) at Vancouver's Red Room with special guests Raised By Wolves, The Furios & The Dreadnoughts in what promises to be "the rowdiest punk and roll show this side of Glasgow!" Pronounced kee-lee, Ceilidh is the Gaelic word for a wicked party that carries on for days! Originally the show was scheduled for Sept 9th, and was postponed following accidental injuries sustained during wild partying at the end of the RM's recent European tour!

The REAL McKENZIES - Fresh off a tour that's recently taken the "guitar-and-bagpipe wailing Celtic punk rock-and-roll" road warriors through Europe with stops in Russia, Scotland, Germany, Hungary and Czechoslovakia, the Real McKenzies have toured North America six times and Europe seven times (where they draw huge crowds), sharing stages with Metallica, Rancid, NOFX, The Misfits and Shane MacGowan of the Pogues. Always touring, drinking, and rockin', the haggis-fueled McKenzie clan perform in full Highland regalia, deeply rooted in their Scottish heritage with a sound best described as the Sex Pistols meet Scottish folk legend Robbie Burns.

RAISED BY WOLVES - Guided by a holy trinity of pinball, motorbikes and rock 'n' roll, the Wolves' rockin' howlin' at the moon is influenced by artists as diverse as Otis Redding, The Clash, The Pointed Sticks and Jerry Lee Lewis. They revel in obscure references, lifting The Wild One for one of their album titles and using a secret symbol taken from classic 1964 Twilight Zone episode "Black Leather Jackets".

The FURIOS (aka LOS FURIOS) deliver an irresistible blend of ska, reggae, and catchy punk with solid, memorable vocals and empowering, danceable anthems ranging from head bobbin' slow skanks to all out, full throttle, pedal-to-the-metal ska romps. Featuring a 3-piece horn section complemented by distinct songwriters and vocalists, The Furios shine the brightest when seen and heard live. The band rocks, jumps, bumps and dances through set after set, creating a party atmosphere that has made them an audience favorite. With nearly a dozen Canadian tours under their belt and dates on last year's Vans Warped Tour, The Furios have shared stages with Fishbone, Bedouin Soundclash, The Planet Smashers, DOA, The Smugglers and many others.
