Miesha & The Spanks are a ferocious garage-pop twosome! Fronted by Miesha Louie, the gut-spilling songstress, and held down by Justin Landstorfer, the hard-hitting juggernaut, these two make a deadly pairing.

tofino concert - mojave

july 10, 2010Mojave
at the Tofino Peace Festival

Saturday, July 10, 2010
Tofino Village Green
Free event| Mojave @ 6 pm

It all began with acoustic guitars, two voices and a Vancouver beach. In 2007, Paul and Lisa Jarvis started writing songs together as a mellow release from their hard rock bands. By the time those bands called it quits, the duo had enough material for the first Mojave album, Stories. The Mojave sound takes Paul and Lisa’s hard rock roots and winds in a quieter intensity. Lisa’s clear vocals soar over delicate acoustic guitars, viola, violin, and eclectic percussion – weaving melodies, telling stories.

tofino concert - bison bc

july 23, 2010Bison B.C.

Friday, July 16, 2010
Tofino Legion
Tickets $15 | Doors 9 pm

Hailing out of East Vancouver Bison B.C. have been playing their scorching thrash punk metal since 2006. The group was born from the ashes of seminal Vancouver skate-thrash band S.T.R.E.E.T.S. Their sound is a colossal wall of fuzzed out shredding, they are a headbangers dream. Their message is punk rock angst and revolution.

Self-described “Canadian dirtbags” and veterans of Vancouver’s deep thrash and indie scenes, they are hitting their stride and offering up a new soundtrack for our last party before certain extinction. There is illness, abuse, apocalypse, and French horn. This is definitely a band for fans of doom, stoner rock, sludge, and good old fashioned heavy metal.

tofino concert - framed faces

july 23, 2010Framed Faces
with the Summer Brothers

Friday, July 23, 2010
Maquinna Pub, Tofino
Tickets $10 | Doors 9 pm

The members of Framed Faces have spent their lives making emotionally charged music. Presented as a waltz of rock and folk strung together with haunting harmony, Framed Faces is the combined experience of four storytellers.

Framed Faces will be joined The Sumner Brothers who like many of their heroes before them; Johnny Cash, Townes Van Zandt or Neil Young, their songs aim to pierce hearts and dig deep beneath the skin. If the Brothers don't own a song, if it does not live in the depths of their hearts and come from that place of true raw emotion, it doesn't come at all, if they don't believe it, you won't hear it from them. It is this commitment to authenticity that first drew the brothers to the songs of country, folk and blues, to roots music.

Vancouver Island based band Current Swell has a unique style of music that is deeply rooted in folk and blues, reggae inspired, and rock driven.
