MAGIC CHRISTIAN hails from SAN FRANCISCO and features some serious major players in the power pop/punk/new wave music scene. MAGIC CHRISTIAN includes CYRIL JORDAN who is one of the founders of rock n' roll legends THE FLAMIN' GROOVIES on guitar, CLEM BURKE who played drums for new wave giants BLONDIE and EDDIE MUNOZ on bass who used to play in early 80's power pop greats THE PLIMSOULS. they are fronted by PAUL KOPF who brought the band together to create a true POWER POP SUPER GROUP!
SONIC AVENUES are from Montreal and play insanely catchy fuzzed out garage-influenced punk rock. they have rocked a few big basement shows in this city in the last year and have always put on a tremendous show and will definitely not disappoint.
MOTHER'S CHILDREN are one of the best bands in ottawa right now and have only been together for half a year. it doesn't hurt that they've all put time in other great ottawa bands namely THE SICK FITS and MILLION DOLLAR MARXISTS. they play punk-tinged rock n' roll that is a cross of 60's pop rock and 70's power pop/punk that will get you moving.
