Join Crop Circle and their very special guests, as they wish guitarist Brian Garbet a fond farewell as he goes to New Zealand for 10 months to wrestle 'gators, outsmart boxing kangaroos and attempt to avoid falling into geysers in his search for musical inspiration in the wild outback! After his Kiwi sabbatical, you can expect him to rejoin the band with exciting new songs ready to go, inspired by his wild adventures!

CROP CIRCLE - Blessed with early success, Crop Circle's debut single 'Mexican Cockfight' became a surprise runaway hit on Canadian rock radio. They've proven they can hold their own alongside some of the industry's biggest names, sharing the stage with major acts like ZZ Top, Cheap Trick, Bif Naked, Wide Mouth Mason and Swollen Members. Handpicked to be part of Budweiser's True Music Tour for two years in a row, their heavy guitar-driven sound hit the top 5 on CFOX, earned the band a spot on the 2002 CFOX Seeds CD and became the #1 most requested song at Kelowna's Power 104." Be sure to come out this evening to hear tunes from their latest CD "Come Inside", recorded and mixed to tape in just 2 weeks old school style with producer Todd Kerns, who raves: "Sean McCormick is the best singer I've recorded yet... a f#!*ing powerhouse!!!

MADISON'S PANIC - And then suddenly out of nowhere comes a sound never heard before, resonating with a melody, complexity, and aura so brilliant that the heart cannot help but blame the mind. The mind just smiles and nods... armed with an array of strings, Madison's Panic combine acoustic rock with intense emotion and raw musical energy. Their versatile sound resonates with melody, complexity and heart through an intensely unique mixture of punk, pop and classical composition creating fresh new classics at every turn. Catch this very special Madison's Panic performance as the band is on indefinite hiatus due to lead singer Mike Madison having relocated to England!

TARL is a West Coast singer/songwriter who has released 2 full-length independent albums with over 4000 copies sold and achieved nationwide airplay with the help of multiple tours, movie and video game soundtracks as well as the honour of sharing stages with a myriad of great acts like Finger Eleven, Nickelback, Bif Naked, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Default and more!

SUGARBLADE - Featuring alumni of Faces Of Eve, Junedog and Lillix, Sugarblade have an undeniable musical chemistry. Miguel Staunton's emotionally-charged, Britpop-inspired voice is a perfect match for Alec Brietzki's blend of modern rock and glam metal. With a rhythm section consisting of Kim Urhahn (ex-Lillix), a rock-solid drummer with an ear for detail, and Greg, a metal bassist with a love for all music dark and angry, the band has worked up an impressive portfolio of original material. With great songwriting and a sound all their own, the band quickly gained a loyal following and has been playing relentlessly to rave reviews.
