tofino concert - august 2, 2008Daniel Wesley

Saturday, August 2, 2008
Tofino Legion
Tix $15 • Doors 9:00 pm

Daniel formed his first band at the age of fifteen, the punk rock outfit called The Dropouts. Continuing on with the hard rock scene, Daniel picked up the guitar at sixteen and fronted local bands Audiophile & Replica. Tired of the constrictions of a rock band, Daniel went out on his own and in the summer of '06 wrote and recorded his debut solo album Outlaw. With beach, reggae and rock sounds, Daniel was finally playing the kinds of music that he was longing for.


tofino concert - blue king brown

tofino concert - august 6, 2008Blue King Brown

Wednesday, August 6, 2008
Tofino Legion
Tix $18 • Doors 9:00 pm

Blue King Brown is a band for your hips, heart and head. The Australian collective melds a deeply percussive sense of rhythm with sweet melodicism and politically astute lyrics. You can hear the afro-beat, reggae slink, world and Latin influence but the band has created a distinctly original sound and they've hit the sweetspot. A refreshing modern take on roots music, uniquely Australian with an unquestionable international feel. Blue King Brown are known for their full force, high energy, live show. In their short time on the touring circuit, bkb have established themselves as a revered name in the Australian music scene and have amassed a solid national following.
"Blue King Brown is my favourite band right now." Carlos Santana

Thursday, August 14, 2008
Tofino Legion
Tix $10 • Doors 9:00 pm

Three-piece power rock trio Flash Lightnin' keep the dance floors shakin' with their hybrid of stompin' southern boogie and electrifying rock. The band wears its influence of 70's ZZ Top and Rolling Stones like a well-worn Nudie Suit, with rhinestone crests of Jack White and the Black Keys. With their extraordinary chops, explosive stage show and reverent yet contemporary approach to blues-based southern rock and roll, Flash Lightnin's weekly residency at The Dakota quickly became one of the hottest nights in the Toronto.

tofino concert - you say party - we say die

tofino concert - august 30, 2008You Say Party - We Say Die

Saturday, August 30, 2008
Tofino Legion
Tix $15 • Doors 9:00 pm

Vancouver's resident dance-punk savants You Say Party! We Say Die! are a catalyst on the edge of a scene brimming towards explosion; hybridied, mechanized, philosophizing machines that have learned self-awareness and found their soul. Self-styled pioneers and genre-warriors are noticing this band taking on the world on their own terms. They are reaching fever pitch in Vancouver's indie rock scene with insanely catchy beats and viciously fun live shows.
