HEAR HERE 13 FEATURES:

--------------------------------------------------------------
BB Guns
(Toronto, ON)

Surfin’ through the musical landscape of hard and soft, the BBs take you on a rip rollin’ journey full of hazy fun. BB Guns are comprised of 5 rockers who can all really play. The image and name remind you of something you once loved and something you are about to love all in one breath. It’s a little punk, a tad upbeat and all tough cookies. Laser gun guitar tones, jingle jangle melodies and a pulsing, heart pounding, move your hips rhythm, is what this pack is about.

B-17 (Optical Sounds)
(Toronto, ON)

B-17 was one of the best bands Aaron of Indie Underground saw in 2014 (Review: http://goo.gl/iIm1KQ). Featuring members of past local psychedelic bands (The Hoa Hoa's/Action Makes/Easy Targets). B-17 were born out of a love for heavy psych rock like Spacemen 3, and Hawkwind as well as classic American fuck up rock like MC5 and The Stooges. Having shared stages with the likes of Red Kross, Crocodiles, Biblical and Simply Saucer, their shows are not to be missed.

FOAM
(London, ON)

FOAM plays a killer live set. Their heart bleeds through their instruments, as they give it everything, every time they perform (which was seen this past year's Winter Spectacular Festival). They're an impressive new band. Don’t sleep on their thrash psych set.
