tofino concert - no means no

No Means No

Friday, June 30, 2006
The Tofino Legion
Tickets $15, Doors 9pm

Canada's preeminent power trio, No Means No have been abrading delicate ears with their complex rhythm-heavy funk-punk and promulgating leftist social commentary across North America since 1981. That was the year a couple of nice Canadian boys, brothers John and Rob Wright, formally began their strange sonic experiments that fused punk with blues, jazz, funk, metal, and pure noise. Rhythms and declamatory lyrics dominated their sound, a situation that remains true today after two decades of developing their sound.

tofino concert - freeflow


Friday, July 14, 2006
The Tofino Legion
Tickets $8, Doors 9pm

David Gogo's music is the kind of blues that makes your hips swing and your beer taste that much better. David received a ukulele at age 4 and his first guitar at age 5. Encouraged by his parents throughout his childhood, the guitar began to captivate him. By the age of 16 Gogo was working steadily as a professional musician. His interest in the blues could be considered unusual for a teenager in the early 1980's. Nonetheless, David was drawn to the emotional power and raw depth of such performers as Howling Wolf and Son House. David had the chance to meet the Texas guitar icon Stevie Ray Vaughan, who encouraged Gogo to pursue and commit to become a serious blues artist. Shortly thereafter he formed a band called The Persuaders . The self-titled album was released to critical acclaim and garnered David a Juno nomination for Best New Artist .

tofino concert - mr something something

Mr Something Something

Saturday, July 29, 2006
The Tofino Legion
Tickets $12, Doors 9pm

Western instruments and concepts of improvisation are explored and layered over what used to be called afrobeat; but the term strains to contain the innovations happening in the rhythm section at every show. It also fails to express in fiery-enough terms the contributions of notable and electrifying vocalist/performance artist Johan Hultqvist. Breaks and basslines are designed to induce and sustain a state of ecstatic dancing. The horn section strikes with power and uplifts with melody. And above it all, acting as a lightning rod for the combined energies of a Mr. Something Something event, is the lyric statement of the case for change and consciousness. And dance

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.
