Tonight! The VanRays, China Syndrome & Two Apple Tobacco!, Canada, Friday, 22. December 2017

This is YOUR holiday party with three great Vancouver bands!

A soulful rock and roll R&B band made up of a bunch of guys you might have seen before. Motown sound and Stax sax take rhythm and blues and put a knife in its back.
It's a Motown beat down in a shark skin suit. It's wailing like its gospel while they're laying in the boots. It's a curb stomping rhythm on the corner of control. It's a nod in the direction, when all the shoes had leather souls. And to when those shoes were twisting, to Otis and to James. And so now do, the VanRays too, we are here to do the same.

China Syndrome is a rockin' melodic power pop band who combine the driving pop hooks of Teenage Fanclub and XTC with liberal doses of 60s and 70s classic rock influences. The Georgia Straight praised their 2015 album The Usual Angst as “infectiously jangly” with “fantastic, hooky guitar;” The Province named it “CD of the Week,” while The Vancouver Sun called it “Album of the Week,” stating “The Usual Angst is an infectious batch of rock." China Syndrome has just released their holiday single, "Footsteps on the Roof," with all proceeds from Bandcamp downloads going to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank.

Two Apple Tobacco creates thought-provoking and topical music, fusing genres and pushing the boundaries of the indie rock idiom. The Mothers of Invention meet The Mahavishnu Orchestra to make a Muppet Musical. Actors by day, musicians by night, the band mixes adventurous original songs with dynamite covers to create a truly dynamic live show. Their EP "applEPairs" is available on Bandcamp.
