tofino concert - jets overhead

Jets Overhead

Saturday, August 5, 2006
The Tofino Legion
Tickets $12, Doors 9pm

Since forming Jets Overhead in 2003, this five piece from Victoria, BC has mesmerized crowds at home and abroad with their hypnotic take on trance rock. Having shared the stage with The Stills, The Dandy Warhols, Stars, Our Lady Peace, Tegan and Sara, Powderfinger and 54*40, the self-managed band took time out of their touring schedule last year to record their first full-length, Bridges. The distinctive LP was produced by Neil Osborne, longtime singer from Canadian rock luminaries 54*40, in his first official production role beyond his own bands duties. Bridges was soft-released in late 2005 on a regional basis and has since reached a top 10 position on Canadas national campus radio charts while also being a staple on emerging alternative outlets such as XM satellite radio and 3WK internet radio. The LP is now due for national release on Microgroove/Warner on April 25, 2006. The early momentum of Bridges comes on the heels of the bands debut self-titled EP, which landed Jets Overhead a spot on the 2003 Reach tour in Ireland and the UK, while garnering a #42 peak on the CMJ Core chart in the US. The group released two music videos from the EP, both of which received specialty play on The Wedge, the premiere alternative show on MuchMusic. In September 2004, the video for "Sun Sun Sun" was voted one of the top 20 videos at Indie Music Video Award screenings in Vancouver, Toronto, Seattle and New York.

Los Rastrillos

Saturday, August 12, 2006
The Tofino Legion

Mexico City has been skanking to the cool- mestizo- reggae rhythms of the Rastrillos since 1988, grooving to their joys and pains, following their musical quest for basic human values--friendship, respect and love. Rastrillos music is a fusion of mexican popular music, with the root of reggae mixed with a taste of the jazz, funk, indu and ska traditional. The Rastrillos' songs talk about all they have experienced during this long voyage guided by the four winds.

The Beautiful Girls

Friday, August 25, 2006
The Tofino Legion
Tickets $15, Doors 9pm

The Beautiful Girls are at the forefront of the new roots and groove music movement. Both live and on record they manage to blend their affection for hip-hop and reggae with their love of real blues and roots. The band brings a mellow and foxy feel to everything they touch. They rap to a resolectric, rocksteady with an acoustic and they do melody like nobody else. They will be visiting us on their North American Tour as they take some time away from their native Australian turf. Don't miss this chance to see these up-and-comers.
