Late show: Mid-Week Crisis at the Railway http://www.facebook.com/events/139559479506370/ *** Windsor Castle: Folk Soul Synth East Vancouver folky soul synth sound Windsor Castle is comprised of bohemian types who live or have lived at a wonderfully characteristic and locally infamous dwelling in the residential heart of Vancouver's East side. Matt Beebe writes the music, plays keys and sings lead vocals while Katherine Ferguson backs him up with her own flavour of sultry singing. James Green fills out the holes with punchy melodic guitar and bass and helps with arrangements. Our goal is to make sweet love to as many ear buds as musically possible. Curl up as many mouth corners as we can. Raise as many goosebumps as there are people out there we wish to serenade. http://soundcloud.com/windsor-castle/heaven-forbid ***Godspot: Psychedelic Blues / Stonergaze Drunken Steampunk Shoegaze! http://www.reverbnation.com/thegodspot *** Electric Honeysuckle: Pop Rock

“ancouver’s The Godspot shake, and deliver, The Dust on a Moth’s Wings with the kind of energy and abandon squeezed from that pressure. There’s that frantic vibe through the playing, and the Gibby Haynesian nasally bark in the vocals, but The Godspot are clearly in swaggering control of the last stab. Scurrying underneath the opening barn burner title cut’s Surfers-meet-Hawkwind furnace to the hazy and wobbly barbed lushness of closer Pretends, and all points in between, are simply good songs.”
