Event Description

Monday?! Who needs Monday?! Especially when SUNDAY just keeps getting better and better at the Railway Club!

The Creatures of the Night team is proud to present TALE FROM THE RAIL #4!!! Come join us for yet another dose of guaranteed rock and roll excess, featuring Pocket Caligula, the East Van Playboys and Duvallstar!!!

Sophisticated and sexy power-punk best describes Vancouver guitarist Siobhan Duvall’s (Covergril, the Bombshells, Bif Naked, the Widows) DUVALLSTAR; able to catch pigeons with her hands, she’s a genre all her own. Joined by Randy Bowman (the Subhmans, the Scramblers, the East Vamps, Covergirl) behind the skins, and, on bass, returning after more than a decade’s hiatus, Nick Venditti (Aging Youth Gang, the Hathaways, Betty Kracker, LGA); Duvallstar’s raw, but polished, sing-a-long anthems are not to be missed!


Founded by guitarists Curtis and Petar from Hong Kong Blonde, THE EAST VAN PLAYBOYS began in 2009 as a Sonics cover band. Since then, they’ve grown to include influences such as Radio Birdman, Blue Oyster Cult, the Dogs and Fun Things. This sharply dressed quintet plays hard and fast garage rock (garagecore) and is rounded out by vocalist Heath Fenton, bassist Don "Big K" White and Mike Jupp on drums (Last Plague, Mr. Fuji, She Deserved It).


Infamous for their set at Occupy Vancouver, POCKET CALIGULA is an eclectic, socially semi-conscious, amped up punk band that recently released its debut record, Unsound. Featuring vocalist Ted Dave (founder of Buy Nothing Day), drummer Jay Rose (First Deep Kiss, Calm, Cault, Zsa Zsa and the Angels, the Messengers), guitarist Julian Lawrence (July Fourth Toilet, Les Poutines, Points Gray), bassist Jon Wyma (Polar Bear, Caulk) and guitarist Seana Gnaw (Suburbans, Toxic Shock, Janitor Joplin, Seana and the Splatter Bends), PC is chock-full of energetic irony and humour—definitely a band you’ll want to get there early for!
