Late show: IMU presents The MALCHICKS 12th YEAR REUNION & CORNSHED TOUR KICK-OFF w/ special guests BREHDREN & The STILL SPIRITS MALCHIKS - Beneath the checkered suits, the corduroy pants, and the shaved heads, it's always the music that came first, a kind of ska-glam-punk-reggae with a healthy dose of B-movie camp thrown in. Who could forget the twisting, winding melodies, the jazz-like improvisation of the Hornsmen of the Skapocalypse, the Santa Cruz guitar and the operatic tremolo, all topped off with the classic over-the-top hyperactive performances of Scott E. Moil skanking with the crowd when not literally on fire. Returning to the stage for a special set after 12 years to once again demonstrate what it means to be a Malchik! http://www.facebook.com/themalchiks BREHDREN - This seven-piece Vancouver-based reggae/ska/rock band was formed in 2010 by best friends, peers & family in an East Vancouver basement. Brehdren’s sound is based around energetic front man Scott E. Moil who's more than just a singer, he's an entertainer first and foremost. But a band can’t just be an enigmatic crazy front man, can it? The other six members of Brehdren back him up with songs that touch on elements of jazz, indie pop and even progressive rock. http://www.facebook.com/brehdren CORNSHED - A blend of East Coast, folk, and bluegrass with the tempo and driving force of a punk band makes Vancouver's Cornshed a stomping, rabble-rousing, "forget about your next day of work" experience. Back to the roots is the simplest way to put it, and the boot stompin’ tunes these guys play get everyone dancing. With an undeniable fire burning in their belly, Cornshed are about to bring the dead back to life. http://www.cornshedband.com The STILL SPIRITS formed after these 4 boys discovered they could make booze cheaper than the store! Their intoxicating blend of folk and bluegrass is fueled by their specially crafted moonshine. Always ready with a flask of shine and a hat full of change, The Still Spirits have the tunes to put you in that olde time mood. http://www.facebook.com/thestillspirits Doors: 8:00 pm.
