And, here's why: The show stopping rock powerhouses out of Toronto, The Mercy Now http://themercynow.com/ The not-to-be-missed two-piece blues rock experience out of Windsor, The Blue Stones http://www.thebluestones.ca/ The dirty, gritty, southern-fried rock 'n' roll of The Micronite Filters http://www.themicronitefilters.com/index.html Peterborough's two-piece doo-wop rock 'n' roll extravaganza, Radio Mama www.facebook.com/radiomama01 So, bring your pearls and your skirt twirls.

“When you find yourself involuntarily banging your head 10 seconds into an album and the hard-rock fever doesn’t break until the end, that’s a very good sign. The Mercy Now describe their sound as a combination of garage rock and soul, which isn’t inaccurate but downplays the fist-pumping classic hard-rock influences that dominate the disc. And while plenty of Page and Plant influences abound, the local quartet’s rough-and-ready garage rock minimalism and classic-soul sex appeal set them apart from the average Led Zeppelin-worshipping bar band. Other moments evoke the MC5, Slade and Cheap Trick, if they’d come up through the punk scene. Can-rock icon Ian Blurton was at the controls for these sessions, and his no-frills, loud-as-fuck approach suits their vibe to a T. An impressive debut from an act we’re sure to hear more about. ”
