RAFFLES !! PRIZES !! EXCITEMENT !! MUSIC !! MISTLETOE
HOSTED BY THE RYAN & AMY SHOW
The Ryan and Amy Show is a Vancouver based sketch comedy duo featuring Ryan Steele and Amy Goodmurphy best known from their live show and popular Youtube videos. They find humour in sick things and believe swearing always makes thing better.
The Zolas' new album, 'Ancient Mars' feels like an isolated summer between college semesters. Instantly nostalgic with touches of New York natives Ambulance Ltd., New York adoptee John Lennon, and the lost riffs of mid-90’s campus radio.
No Sinner’s sound bears a trustworthiness of timbre and melody that’s easy to fall in love with. With the recent release of their debut 7” single “Boo Hoo Hoo” “Love is Madness,” No Sinner quickly garnered much advance attention before breaking over 20,000 YouTube hits for the video “Boo Hoo Hoo” and flooring both media and fans with their raw and captivating live shows.
It's been a great fall for Cyril; his latest free remix 'gift' to his fans, Solange's 'Losing You' has quickly become a fan favourite with 70k+ in less than 2 weeks. His official remix for The Alpines 'Chances' on constant replay on radios in the UK and Europe and on the blogosphere. His ever-popular Destiny's Child's 'Say My Name' has been championed by the likes of the xx, Diplo, Bicep & of course, Annie Mac. The remix is now at over half-a million plays on Soundcloud, countless covers and tribute videos via YouTube and touted by some, as one of the songs of the year.
Invoking a sound that will leave you hopelessly liberated, as if soaring above civilization on the wings of an albatross, or happily confined, as if stuck in an elevator with a bottle of tequila, Tough Lovers will guide you on a lyrical spiritual quest; songs conveying feelings of warmth and contentment complement those of emptiness and longing while fearlessly laying bare the emotions of a relentless group of young men driven for success in the unforgiving industry they love.
Gold & Youth
Gold & Youth is a band based in Vancouver and Toronto who write songs tinged with nostalgic desire. Their music evokes memories of neo-noir Los Angeles, cinematic haze and midnight solitudes. Their debut album, Beyond Wilderness, will be released spring 2013 on Arts & Crafts.
When vocalist Matthew Moldowan and bassist Jeffrey Josiah Powell let the name expire on their previous act, they walked away from an outfit that never got past the grand planning stage despite a great record and the approval of critics. When the two regrouped in 2010, the whole idea was to be as nimble as possible—and voila, by 2011, they were in the Warehouse studio working on the bed tracks for their debut album on Light Organ Records.
Young Braised is a living rapper who lives on a beautiful island and raps online with his friends.
Slam Dunk side-project by Jordan Minkoff and pals that will be sure to mess you up in the best way possible.
Gang Signs are a sparkly new Vancouver band, but you wouldn’t know it cuz they sound like they’ve been playing music together for years. Wobangs and Peter Ricq of Humans got together with drummer Adam Fink to make some super awesome wavy music. Catchy bass lines + dreamy vocals + fun drums = best ever.
