One Night Band will be flying into BC to do three exclusive shows in celebration of their latest CD effort that was produced by Brian Dixon of the Aggrolites.

The Kiltlifters are also boasting their brand new CD titled "Check Yer Shorts" and The Easy Brothers and Brave New Waves continue to show everyone they play for why they're some of the most exciting bands in our scene on the westcoast each with their unique style of reggae, punk and ska!

As an added bonus Victoria BC Ska Society is happy to host the show at Upstairs Cabaret above Darcy's Pub on Wharf Street. As many of you may know, Upstairs Cabaret used to be Harpos back in the day (one of North America's most esteemed club venues). It's still there and ready to host so we thought - why not?
