Musical Guests include:

The Doers -

Hailing from Vancouver, The Doers are an acoustic, three-piece-folk-punk-soft-math-rock band with a pleasant smell and a firm handshake. Formed from 3/4 of the surviving members of Vancouver legends STATIONa, a band that recorded three LPs and was notorious for providing a wall of sound; often leaving its audience stramming for more or in an ambulence. In contrast to their roots, the Doers have managed to capture the intensity of STATIONa but with a portion of the volume, minus one member and far less gear. Having recently completed a double EP/LP entitled "Ready, Set...Do/I Can Enjoy Almost Anything" recorded at Rec-age Recorders that featured Sean Maxey on guitar/vocals, Barry Higginson on bass, Jeff Sebastian on drums and Kathy Dube (also of The Cinch) on vocals, the Doers formulated a beautiful, aggressive, soothing, tantric record. The record also includes cameos from the likes of the legendary Mike Watt (Minutemen, fIREHOSE) who played bass on a number of tracks while Barry Higginson was recovering from a near fatal injury late 2002. (The ordeal was documented on http://www.cbcradio3.ca and entitled "The Art of Recovery; Bedside Drawings of a Fallen Friend" illustrated by Sean Maxey.) Other cameos include Joel Tong (Black Rice), Juli Steemson (Black Rice), Jesse Gander (DBS, Operation Makeout), and the infamous John Cow (Northland Lumber, Honeycow).

The Cape May -

Hailing from Calgary Alberta The Cape May include ex-Trikl Act member Clinton. With their offering of great noisy, post-punk, they're sure to add an edge to any stage.
