The SPITFIRES - The West Coast masters of rock debauchery and high-energy garage rock 'n' roll have been resurrected! With musical roots in punk and hard rock steeped in enough hard liquor to down a naval battalion, the Spitfires have resurfaced and are looking forward to once again being rich and pompous rock stars! Their awesome new double CD "Illustrious Career" features songs from the band's last three albums plus a bonus live disc recorded live at Vancouver's Pic Pub. Don't miss this sure-to-be-legendary performance! http://www.thespitfires.ca

The DARKEST OF THE HILLSIDE THICKETS are influenced by lost cities, tainted bloodlines, alien gods, and that fabled tome, The Necronomicon. They're on a Lovecraftian binge of madness, and they mean to take you with them! The Thickets have a reputation for inciting their live audiences with an energized blend of melodic punk rock, while wearing outlandish costumes that help bring their infectiously twisted songs to life. http://www.holycow.com/thickets

THE MANVILS - This talented quartet delivers an intense, unrivalled live show with scorching guitars and bellowing vocals that merge into a modern take on the psychedelic blues sound pioneered by The Yardbirds, Velvet Underground and the Stones. Having shared the stage with prestigious bands including The Stereophonics, The High Dials, They Might Be Giants and Brian Jonestown Massacre's lunatic frontman Anton Newcombe, The Manvils enthusiastically abandon themselves to intoxicating rock liberation, converting new initiates to their ever-growing legion of fans every time they take the stage. http://www.themanvils.com/
