Saturday, April 4, 2009
Tofino Legion
Tix $10 • Doors 9:00pm

Three piece Toronto electro indie band vitaminsforyou have been touring pretty much constantly taking their high energy show across Canada. Drums, bass, keyboards and more electronics than a NASA launch headquarters are combined live on stage to create a mesmerizing electro pop show that draws all within earshot to the dance floor.

tofino concert - you say party! we say die!

april 11, 2009You Say Party! We Say Die!

Saturday, April 11, 2009
Tofino Legion
Tix $15 • Doors 9:00pm

Vancouver's resident dance-punk savants You Say Party! We Say Die! are a catalyst on the edge of a scene brimming towards explosion; hybridized, mechanized, philosophizing machines that have learned self-awareness and found their soul. Self-styled pioneers and genre-warriors alike are noticing that this is a band taking on the world on their own terms. They are reaching a fever pitch in Vancouver's indie rock scene with their insanely catchy beats and viciously fun live show. Reminiscent of the vocal stylings of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, YSP! built upon textured melodic ideas that complimented their spastic, but richly diverse rock riffs. YSP!'s perpetually dance-inducing tracks have gained them considerable attention amoung the dance rock scene in Vancouver.

tofino concert - attack in black

april 21, 2009Attack in Black

Tuesday, April 21, 2009
Tofino Legion
Tix $10 • Doors 9:00pm

Hailing from Welland, Ontario, Attack in Black, have quickly won over audiences and critics with their merge of the soul of old school rock 'n' roll with the body of modern day punk rock. Although Attack in Black's sound may at first closely resemble popular forms of punk rock, it is not fitting to simply categorize the quartet as a "punk rock" band. The band draws from many unlikely sources for inspiration, such as Neil Young, The Ramones, and Charles Bukowski. With infectious melodies and unique vocals, their lyrics are thought provoking and insightful. Attack in Black's swaggering, spirited live set can convert even the most jaded concert-goer.
