. Saturday, October 2nd IMU presents GIRLS, GIRLS, GIRLS, ELEPHANT TRAIN, CINDERPOP & PAINTED CITIES @ The Railway Club, 579 Dunsmuir .

GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS - Premier purveyors of alcoholic circus music, this London UK-based three piece is equally adept at power trio riffing as they are producing string-laden baroque outsider music. Their unique mix of joyful gypsy power pop stomp, chaotic piano balladry and wide-eyed punkabilly is colourful, hard-hitting and brilliantly unified by a killer pop sensibility.

PAINTED CITIES create compelling, inventive songs that draw from a wide range of musical styles to form a unique blend of funk, folk, rock and jazz with lyrics that often deal with heavier topics such as relationships, culture and politics. Their infectious, danceable tunes have been heard at venues ranging from music festivals to all-ages community halls to the grittiest bars of downtown Vancouver.

ELEPHANT TRAIN has been around for nearly two years, gaining a respectable following by playing shows throughout Vancouver. Their sound touches on a wide variety of genres and styles, combining funky licks that make the girls cry with a solid, lickity-split havoc that brings out the boogie in people. Quickly gathering speed with a new album of studio recordings, Elephant Train delivers a strong, enthusiastic live show full of funky original rock.

CINDERPOP play inventive, harmony-drenched, guitar-driven songs that range from orch-pop and space rock to bouncy Beatlesque powerpop. Featuring alumni of The Salteens, Moev & SK Robot, their eclectic sound combines free-floating vocals with dreamy melodies and pulsing guitars to great effect. Having performed with artists such as Stereolab and Sloan, Cinderpop are taking things further and farther out with their new album "A Lesson In Science", which will be debuted live this special evening. "Cinderpop mines the orch-pop territory and makes it sound new, fresh. Kinda like The Left Banke meets The Zombies with XTC... It's all wickedly cool!" -- Soul Shine Magazine
