Friday, Sept 8th IMU & CiTR present The Feminists Full Moon Tour Kick Off Party w/ Cinderpop, Parlour Steps, Arctic + The Filigrees @ The LAMPLIGHTER, 210 Abbott Street . Doors 8pm / $10 -:- $3 Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer!

THE FEMINISTS - An energetic, engaging combination of angelic vocals along with jangle-punk guitar and driving, emotive keyboards, The Feminists bring together a powerful combination of unpredictable, loud, and exciting sound. Jet engine chaos is instantly replaced by fragile, delicate beauty before leaping back to frenzied distortion: power-pop meets art-rock meets psychedelia meets emo-core. One of Vancouver's hardest working indie bands, The Feminists have charted on college stations from Nanaimo to Halifax, toured across Canada without an agent, manager or record label support, and opened for bands like The Weakerthans and NoMeansNo.

CINDERPOP play inventive, harmony-drenched, guitar-driven power pop. Featuring alumni of Moev, SK Robot, The Salteens and others, their eclectic sound combines free-floating vocals with dreamy melodies and pulsing guitars to great effect. Their debut "Violet Gamma Rays" charted on college stations across Canada and the U.S., and their latest CD "Their Skies Are Beautiful" continued the journey. From pastoral to distorted, whimsical to melancholy, Cinderpop's has a fine set of songs to sail through!

PARLOUR STEPS combine anthemic rock, expansive space-pop, experimental jazz and electronica into a sound that is equal parts melody, rhythm, and epiphany. Their album release "The Great Perhaps" is an electrifying statement of beauty and art showcasing drastic dynamic contrasts.

ARCTIC conjures up a rich live experience by recording as they play, looping recordings and constructing each song before the audience. Layers of haunting melodies cascade on top of rich improvised arrangements, with intertwining vocals and guitar melded into a chilled and airy soundscape.

The FILIGREES - Formed in September 2005, this 2 man blues-driven rock and roll band focuses on tightly crafted feel-good music! Influenced by Neil Young, Kings of Leon and the Rolling Stones, the band can be favourably compared to Black Mountain and Wolfmother, and promises to blow the roof off with their heart and soul.
