THE BELUSHIS - Earning their keep onstage with non-stop, earsplitting, sweat-flying, no-bullshit action, The Belushis are one of Vancouver's premier hard rock bands, combining the best riff-rocking TKOs on the Canadian West Coast in the finest tradition of bands like AC/DC, the Ramones and Motorhead.

GOLD STARS ARE FOR SUCKERS - Featuring former members of Waltz Darling and The Town Pants, the Gold Stars met in a local rehearsal space for an impromptu jam session where the music started to formulate and flow at a rapid pace. Their music is fresh and vibrant through exploration of diverse influences including Pixies, The Ramones and The Damned.

COLOURSURROUND - Formed by three strung-out corporate dudes in suits who desperately needed an outlet, Coloursurround creates escapist music inspired by otherworldly bands such as Pink Floyd, Stone Roses, My Bloody Valentine, Smashing Pumpkins, Dandy Warhols, Radiohead and Jeff Buckley.

MY PET LION - With ambient textures, catchy hooks and a fantastic live show, My Pet Lion is a force to be reckoned with. A powerhouse group that challenges the conventional boundaries of today’s pop and folk music, their music is enhanced by diverse lyrics and melodic surprises.
