    Canvas - XPrime - Sea Perry - Aukland - Before The Flood This event is 19 and over Canvas - (Set time: 12:40 AM)WebsiteFacebookLinks"The aptly named Canvas pulls a Jackson Pollock with its debut EP and throws something for everybody into this indie rock offering. Depending on what you're into you'll find different things to fall in love with on Ashes. Fans of punk will enjoy the high energy of tracks like "Fight Winner" and "Lucky". While indie rockers will enjoy the soothing vocal delivery of frontman Ryan White. It's not an easy task pleasing a wide range of often pretentious music listers, but somehow between the harrowing sonic melodies and catchy hooks a sweet spot has been found. If radio stations played music that people would actually enjoy, instead of pushing music from whichever artist's record label gives them the most money, they'd be playing the new Canvas EP." - PMRDblog.com XPrime - (Set time: 11:30 PM)WebsiteFacebookTwitterLinksXprime /eks-prm/ verb to express, pure musical joy Are they pop? Are they Duwop? Are they classic, or modern, or all of the above? Attempting to classify Xprime into one genre is fruitless: theirs is a kind of sound meant to be enjoyed by anyone and everyone. With songs crafted to draw in every type of fan, from lovers of pop, embracers of blues and the hardest of rockers, there is literally something for everyone when it comes to Xprime. Their latest recording, The Album, speaks to that, and speaks -- or sings -- for itself. Produced by Chris Perry at the hitmaking Pocket Studios, Xprime's follow up to Here We Are shows a sonic evolution that's not at all surprising for a band of Xprime's calibre. The Album shows Xprime delving into more complex songwriting, more vibrant harmony and more mature subject matter, while still holding true to the uplifting and mood elevating sound and style that they are known for.So let your inner and outer music lover express itself, and hit the dancefloor with Xprime. Exprime-toi! Expressing themselves comes so naturally to Xprime that they put in right out there in their name, with a twist to honour their French Canadian roots. It's hard to believe that a band so polished could come from such inauspicious beginnings. Drummer Phil Taylor, the most dapper of the bunch, got his start with sticks with none other than the Niagara Symphony. He banged on the books until a drum set made its way into his home, and a love of funk took over. Gab Mercier, an expert at both creativity and thievery, turned his first keyboard into a keytar, and stole his first guitar, making him the band's resident badass. Steph Mercier, clearly the more polite of the brothers, borrowed his father's guitar to teach himself the King of the Hill themesong, before deciding that shredding speedmetal tunes all night long was the best path to future rock stardom. And Neil Carson, the coolest cat to ever grace a stage, let his inner Star Wars nerd start him along his own musical path by learning John Williams' score from The Phantom Menace, before moving onto to melding his mind with the entire Beatles' catalogue. High school classmates and brothers in arms (and genes), Taylor, Carson and the Merciers finally came together to make actual musical magic. Often compared to a box of puppies for their happy go lucky and undeniably adorable demeanor, don't let Xprime's vest, bowtie andwhatever Neil decided to wear that day, fool you. As much as their appearance invokes gasps, giggles and "aws", it's their talent that truly intimidates. The greatest evidence of that fact came from their many Mondays spent as the houseband for the Bobcast podcast, where musical guests could often be heard muttering to themselves and their bandmates "man, these guys are AWESOME. Wait, we have to go on after them?" Such statements were usually followed by much shaking in boots, no matter how punk, hardcore, heavy metal, or famous these aforementioned acts may have been. But that's what makes Xprime so charming; they're unassuming, modest and quiet in their confidence, never fully revealing the true height of their talent until they take the stage. But once they do, their technical skill, infectious energy and innate ability to create pure, beautiful music is undeniable. Instrument switching, dancing while playing, singing while drumming: there is nothing Xprime can't do when it comes to music. Add to that already amazing mix goosebump inducing, Beach Boys and Billy Talent inspired harmonies, and the ability to craft catchy, uncheesy (is that even a word?) and totally addictive pop songs, and you have the wonderfully winning combination that is Xprime. Sounds too good to be true? All it takes is one Xprime show and even the most cynical music snobs end up converted into lifelong fans.
