Tofino Legion
Tix $20 • Doors 9:00pm

Five Alarm Funk is a Vancouver-based, 12-piece rhythm machine pounding out a delirium-inducing live show with original funk and afro-beat grooves. The band's horn and percussion-driven instrumental jams feature searing guitar leads and horn solos wailing and soaring above a four-man percussion maelstrom that is grounded by Neil Towers' juicy bass lines. The band's wicked cross-rhythms and frenetic, costumed stage show appeals to jazz fans and club kids alike.

Thursday, September 17, 2009
Tofino Community Hall
Tix $15 • Doors 9:00pm

What happens if you cross a Brazilian carnival spirit with a reggae soundsystem? You come up with the unique sound of Ninja Tunes recording artist DJ Vadim. He'll be making his way to the westcoast with mc's Abstract Rude and Yarah Bravo. Born in Saint Petersburg Russia, raised in London and now currently a resident of Brooklyn New York, Vadim brings a world of experience to his music production and performances. His sound is unpredictable with touches of disco and tubby-esque dub moments, varied with brushes of blues, soul and rap, urban grime bedlam with double time bounce and ambitious combining so many influences and yet making it feel like they all fit. This is a rare opportunity to see a Ninja tunes master at work!!

Tix $20 • Doors 9:00pm

Mother Mother are a highly melodic, Pixies-esque cabaret-pop band. They are generating much recognition with their original approach to modern pop/rock music; a beautifully bent portrait of vocal harmony, clever, offbeat lyricism, and dynamic instrumentation. On stage, this group of five delivers a big sound, executing pristine vocal harmonies while utilizing a variety of multi-instrumental talents. With engaging stage chemistry, Mother Mother recreates the essence of their recorded music with precision and conviction, while never losing touch with the power of spontaneity and abandon. No stranger to life on the road, Mother Mother tours constantly and is building a large and dedicated fan base in North America. They've graced the stage with such artists as The Killers and Spoon.

tofino concert - ganga giri

october 3, 2009Ganga Giri

Saturday, October 3, 2009
Tofino Legion
Tix $18 • Doors 9:00pm

Ganga Giri mixes red natural elements with fat tribal beats and dirty funky bass lines to create a unique tribal-technological deep earth dance experience. Explosive and pulsating, at times ambient and flowing, the music is a pumping percussive multi-layered experience of complex grooves and raw, deep natural sound. Ganga himself is a rhythmic didjeridu virtuoso and percussionist - an inspired music creator who's passion brings people together.

tofino concert - grady

october 10, 2009Grady

Saturday, October 10, 2009
Tofino Legion
Tix $15 • Doors 9:00pm

Southern swamp blues-rock mayhem with paint-peeling slide guitar like you've never heard: Grady from Austin, tx is a razor-sharp power trio fronted by guitar master Gordie Johnson who counts gold/platinum records on his wall from his stint with Big Sugar. With picks on all his fingers, he rips the strings, loud as hell, through a Garnet pre-amp with a whole lotta power. Grady has a fiercer, more direct sound than his previous music-a perfect fit for Alternative Tentacles. Grady's live show is a spontaneous subsonic combustion that swerves between punk rock agro and field holler hypnosis. As Jello Biafra once enthused "These guys are the missing link between Junior Brown and Black Flag". Grady is a thundering Texas locomotive flying down the tracks with a sound that will convince you Motoerhead has joined forces with John Lee Hooker.
