Toronto,

Here We Go!



While some bands made it just in time to register by December 31, others got their s**t together early and will get to play in the first nights of the Festival in Canada. The fun starts Thursday January 9th at the fabulous Rivoli. Each night, 8 great up-and-coming bands will strut their stuff for 30 minutes each. It’ll be up to the audience to pick their favorites – four bands per night will get to move on to the Semi-Finals, according to their votes! Rock being the flavour du jour, get ready to hear all variation on the theme. We’ve got your timeless Rock n’ roll, more melodic Brit rock & Pop rock, sexy Goth, classic Hard rock, retro Garage and edgy Indie & alternative rock. Thrown in the mix to spice things up is some World Music, Funk & Soul. In total, 128 talented bands will take to the stage in Toronto! Here are the first 32: Eliminatory #1 - Thursday Jan. 9 THE RIDDLE Rock ABLAZE World Music BEGGARZ Rock n Roll COMPANY SLAVE Rock VEGASPHERE ROUND 2 English Rock REDSHIFT Rock SEX WITHOUT SOULS Goth Rock Eliminatory #2 - Friday Jan. 10 GOODER Pop Rock DAYBREAK English Rock LOVEJOY Rock ADAM 8 Retro Futuristic Pop Rock FTA Rock WATSON Indie Rock KEY OF ME Alternative SLAVE TO THE SQUAREWAVE Pop Rock Eliminatory #3 - Saturday Jan. 11 OVERVIEW TWO TONGUES TIED Indie Rock LIFTED Rock BOSS GRUNIONS Rock LITTLE SUNDAY Alternative UNCLEFTY Rock TRIPCHORD Hard Rock THE FORMULA Funky Not yet 19?
