Join us as we come together to raise money in the fight to conquer cancer. The Ride To Conquer Cancer is a fundraiser for cancer research. Funds raised will help the BC Cancer Foundation to support research and patient care at the BC Cancer Agency, which includes crucial cancer research that in turn helps develop new cancer treatments at Canada's only cancer control organization. Visit the official Ride To Conquer Cancer website for more info: http://va09.conquercancer.ca

Some of the talented artists who will be generously donating their time for your entertainment include the high-energy dance party that is Fuzzcat, the lush psychedelic sounds of Way To Go Einstein and Arctic, and the soulful melodic sounds of Mani Khaira. Stand-up comedian Donovan Mahoney will be sure to have you LYAO and there will also be a silent auction this special evening.

The FILM INDUSTRY - Combining the liberating power of rock and a hypnotic approach derived from electronic roots, with a zest of jazz for good measure, The Film Industry makes your head nod with their trippy groove-oriented music. Featuring former members of OCEANIC, their electronic groove based music is a fusion of ambient guitars, samples and keyboard textures and take you on an irresistible journey of sound! http://www.myspace.com/thefilmindustry

WAY TO GO, EINSTEIN is a solid modern rock act that blends superb guitars and piano with creative songwriting. Favourably compared to acts like Muse and Coldplay, they recently released their second CD "Pseudonym". Building on the buzz of their first release "Hide and Seek Champion", their new album promises to bring plenty more attention, stimulated ears, moved souls, and ironic band name loving fans. "Their melodies soar to the heavens, backed by lush beds of reverb-treated guitars and synthesizers" - Georgia Straight http://www.myspace.com/WayToGoEinstein

FUZZCAT - Vancouver's funk-filled reggae rock attack, Fuzzcat has been exploding Western Canadian dance floors since 2006. Assembling like the five lions of Voltron, Fuzzcat unified into a tight music-making machine, delivering thick beats and ass-shakin' rawk. Their charismatic, high-energy performances have drawn comparisons to bands like the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Sublime, but their diverse influences range from hip-hop to punk.Danceable rhythms, infectious lyrics and provocative musical arrangements have earned them a growing reputation as one of the West Coast's most exciting emerging bands. http://www.myspace.com/FuzzcatMusic

ARCTIC - Haunting, moody and hypnotic, ARCTIC conjures up chilly acoustic northern landscapes and intensely rich, layered space rock that's been described as "acoustic trance", "psychedelic folk" and "Metric meets Neil Young". Always seeking contrast, ARCTIC is never exactly the same from one show to the next, combining diverse influences in unexpected ways: progressive rock, industrial rock and jazz influences merge with ambient textures and acoustic melodies to create a fresh, unconventional and intriguing sound. http://www.projectarctic.com

MANI KHAIRA is the embodiment of an intense and acute passion, quietly in tune with the reality and truths we all endure. Audiences are captivated by his intense and honest performances as his story is powerfully told through a cadence of rushing sound, rolling piano, deep vocals, shining melodies and textured lyrics. http://www.myspace.com/ManiKhaira

MARNIE MAINS - When her boyfriend refused to teach her to play guitar, Marnie Mains broke up with him and taught herself. Marnie's stomping ground is the human condition and it should come as no surprise that she is adamantly honest, a little ironic and certainly complex. Her lyrics are witty and thought provoking while her music is angelic, soft and captivating, prompting Justin Timberlake's producer to praise her as "mesmerizing", "profound" and a "beautiful singer". http://www.MarnieMains.com / http://www.myspace.com/MarnieMainsMusic
