Formed in 2006 over pints of cheap beer at East Vancouver's notoriously violent Ivanhoe Hotel, the Dreadnoughts cut their teeth in the roughest dive bars in the city. They started by opening for (and earning the praise of) celtic-punk grandfathers The Real McKenzies, and since then have never looked back. Hauling a fiddle, an accordion, a mandolin, a tin whistle, guitars and drums into every venue that would have them, they quickly became known for their powerful, chaotic live performances. In four short years they have slowly but surely joined the ranks of Canada's punk rock elite, bringing their insanely energetic and dangerous live show to the four corners of the globe.
The Dreadnoughts aren't just a band, they're an advocacy group, ruthlessly promoting the idea that folk and punk music form a perfect union. They've been literally destroying stages and swilling ciders the world over, spreading their gospel to anyone and everyone who will listen.
Vancouver band that plays hardcore music with sprinklings of sweet pop punk mixed in.
Slip-ons play skinny-white-boy-rock with a nod to Minneapolis. Brock Pytel (Doughboys) sings and writes the songs, Shockker (Mongoose, Tiger Prawn) on guitar, Brian Minato (Sarah McLachlan) on bass and backing vox, Shane Wilson (Jack tripper) on drums.
THE STAGGERS & JAGGS
Creeping out of the woodwork is the hauntingly nostalgic sound of The Staggers & Jaggs. This East Van ensemble is a curious concoction of characters, taking influence from prohibition era parties, blues, jazz and punk rock. Stories of love, loss and madness are told through playful melodies and hypnotic rhythms.
RUSSIAN TIM AND PAVEL BURES
Our ensemble's mission statement is simple - we play punk rock versions of Russian pop and rock songs. You don't know those songs, but we do. So we take a Russian hit and make a punk rock hit out of it. Great success!
We are a punk band from Vancouver BC that writes technical and melodic punk that will give your goose bumps when we really get going.
