MISS QUINCY & THE SHOWDOWN - Vancouver, you'd better hide your sons & lovers - Miss Quincy and her all-girl band The Showdown are invading the city for the winter. Tipping her hat to earlier times, Miss Quincy draws inspiration from the pioneering women who came before, the blues ladies of the 1930's, dirty guitar licks, and sweet gospel harmonies. Miss Quincy doesn't fit the classic girl singer/songwriter mold and The Showdown isn't your average all-girl band. Instead of singing you pretty pages out of their diaries, they'll be getting down with dirty electric roots & blues.
THE BROKEN MIRRORS - After 12 years touring the world with underground legend CR Avery, lead guitarist Noah Walker has started a new band with some of Vancouver's finest musicians. The Broken Mirrors have the musicianship of Wilco, the energy of The Talking Heads, the style and humour of Beck, and the quirkiness of early Elvis Costello.
HIGH SOCIETY - High Society is a four-headed beast with the undying strength of animatronics driven by monstrous animal instincts; with lungs only comparable to the likes of superman filling a voice that plucks your heart strings. Based out of Vancouver, B.C. the band has been building a regional reputation across western Canada for close to two years playing a blend of R&B, Soul, Folk, Blues, Hip Hop, and Jazz.
