Fast Romantics w/ opener Mark Stone
Friday, Aug 08
Fast Romantics high energy stage show full of blood, guts, and bliss that has attracted such a growing following. The band has played three tours, and many large festivals including Virgin Fest, SXSW, NXNE, and CMJ. They also found themselves winners of Spin Magazine’s “Free the Noise” competition that saw them flown to New York City to perform in a temporarily rebuilt CBGB’s. Their music has also found its way onto many TV shows and films, including Shameless, Breaking In, Vampire Diaries, and Pretty Little Liars, and their first single, “Funeral Song,” has already found warm reception in the short time since its online release. The band formed in 2008 in Calgary during what Angus calls a ‘whiskey storm.’ Angus and the two other founding members — bassist Jeffrey Lewis and drummer Alan Reain — were joined last year by two Australian ex-pats, Shane O’ Keeffe and Lauren Heron. Angus says the two “brought exactly what we were missing at exactly the right time” to the group, including what he calls “those dreamy foreign-sounding accents.” More info: http://fastromantics.com Opening Act: Mark Stone Cover: $7 | Showtime 9PM

Tofu Stravinsky

Smooth, crunchy, jazzy and hip: The music of is like walking through a glowing cityscape drinking good red wine from a coke can- the beginning to a perfect night. On stage and in the studio, the dynamic vocals of Sarah Orton are supported by the Johnny Marr-like guitar stylings of Tyler Toews and Jon Perry’s cunning synth hooks. The band is grounded by a dance-floor-filling rhythm section composed of Pat McTaggart on bass and Edward T on drums. Having shared the stage with two-time Juno award winner Alex Cuba, SLOAN, Hey Ocean! and The Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra, is quickly making a name for themselves amongst some of British Columbia's finest musicians.

Fathead
Wednesday, Aug 20
ith the June 2014 release of "Fatter Than Ever" it is becoming quite evident that may be the best blues & roots band to come out of Canada since Ronnie Hawkins hired The Band to become his backup group in the mid-1950s. An ultra-tight ensemble, brings together some of the most respected musicians in the country to create an energetic blend of blues with r&b, funky, gospel-tinged soul and "feel good" rock'n'roll. Real Blues magazine referred to the group's harp and guitar-dominated sound as "one of those rare, much sought after, but seldom achieved, chemical/spiritual reactions that happens when all the right ingredients come together: talent, personality, humour, united vision and a little bit of hoodoo/voodoo". "The Toronto Star" praised when it commented, "If the blues were a sports league, would be the equivalent of an all-star team".
