Come celebrate the launch of Joyce Island's debut self-titled release this special evening! Joined by some of Vancouver's best emerging talent, this show promises to pack a musical punch!

JOYCE ISLAND - Wowing audiences with her raw, emotionally charged vocals and charismatic live shows since 2007, Lisa Joyce has had the pleasure of singing with Steven Tyler of Aerosmith and headlining Vancouver's 2012 Fringe Festival. Her songs are reminiscent of old traditionals with a modern spin, channeling the classic instrumental energies of artists like Neil Young, Tom Petty and Fleetwood Mac with rich guitar tones and bluesy psychedelia.

POPNOIRNOIR - A blues-infused project with smoky female vocals and minimalist accompaniment, PopNoirNoir melds their blues rock DNA with French pop to create dark melodies that smoulder over funky beats.

LOW SPIN - Since 2009, Low Spin has quickly become a local favorite while catching the attention of Tegan Quin (Tegan and Sara) and producer Howard Redekopp (Mother Mother, New Pornographers), who produced their self-titled EP. Their music has been characterized as alternative dark-pop, shifting effortlessly from introspective, haunting songs to infectious, upbeat dance numbers. Hand-picked by UK buzz band Joy Formidable for their West Coast tour dates, their EP features “Give Chase”, an unreleased Tegan and Sara tune brought to life with Tegan’s blessing.

QUIET KIDS reinvented the wheel and threw the baby out with the bathwater. They are voices, guitars, synthesizers, bass, and drums. They are major and minor, but mostly fast. They are and they are not Vancouver. Quiet Kids are the best thing since sliced bread!

Quiet Kids (Pop/Rock/Indie)

Luckily for all of us, the one-page band biography is falling out of favour. It is unpleasant to write and even worse to read. There are times, however, when the band bio is a necessary evil. We understand that and appreciate your situation, so we’ll keep this as factual as possible. We’re called Quiet Kids. There are four of us: Jay Hosking (... more info
