Event Archive - LATE SHOW!: Criminal Caterpillar, No Island, Ivy League Brawlers, Dubai

Sat. January 14th 2012 Railway Club (No Minors)
$10 at the door only.
Presented by: MINUTE FUNK
Criminal Caterpillar is a talented artistic rock act from the lower mainland. Inspired by the old (Yes, Genesis, King Crimson) and the new (The Mars Volta, The Dear Hunter, Incubus, Radiohead), they strive to make progressive music unbound by the standard rock conventions of today.
No Island delivers a new brand of rock that blurs the lines between genres and generations. Drawing from influences such as Supertramp, Queen, Rush, and Steely Dan, No Island has taken their love of innovative classic rock and channeled it in their own new direction. With well-crafted original songs and a unique sound complimented by keyboards and saxophone, No Island's approach to rock is catchy, powerful, and sophisticated all at once.
The Brawlers are back! Debuting a new lead singer and a ton of new songs, be ready to have the ILB rock your face off in excitingly new and unexpected ways at this much-anticipated comeback show. Blending elements of ska, punk and rock with a high-energy spectacle on stage, ILB has been the life of the party since 2008. Boasting a four-piece horn section and a catchy assortment of original songs, this electrifying band is sure to keep you on the dance floor all night long.
Genre-bending, duo-fronted, indie-rock/alt-pop. A four-eyed time-lord and three Radiohead-obsessed/Bjork-inspired friends come together to thunder-punch and swan-song their way into your left-ventricles. Dubai is hyphen-music at its best.
