Event Description

Girls and boys indie pop night!
Kat Bastow is a solo project featuring original tracks written by Kat and performed by her and her band. Her EP "echoes unheard" was released in 2012, and Kat has since shared the stage with bands varying from Fighting for Ithaca to Cobra Ramone. The sound is a mix of No Doubt, Bif Naked and Pearl Jam, with a unique twist.
If a movie about The New Black were made, “Four Rock Vets And A Burlesque Lady” would be a pretty bad title. It wouldn’t do justice to the band’s mostly unique, mostly rock sound. Singer Kristi Johanson mixes the sweet and strange over the fraternal twin guitars of David Lea-Smith and Gary Economy. Gord Badanic (Go Four 3) channels his ace record collection through a P-Bass and Tony Lee plays the drums with the vigour of a fairly vigourous man. Those of you who love punk, girl group, new wave, and classic pop will probably enjoy The New Black!
China Syndrome is a rockin' melodic power pop band, who combine the driving pop hooks of The New Pornographers and Guided By Voices with liberal dollops of old favourites such as XTC and the Replacements. Their most recent CD, Nothing's Not Worth Knowing, was recorded and produced at Vancouver's JC/DC Studio by David Carswell (The New Pornographers, Destroyer, Tegan & Sara, Apollo Ghosts, among others). The album garnered positive reviews, with Tom Harrison of The Province stating it "exudes confidence" and !earshot-online.com saying it's "lots of fun to listen to over and over again."
