Always supremely professional, SOTW meshes energetic musicianship with humour and verve. www.sotw.ca The Cruzeros The Kelowna-based Cruzeros have spent over a decade perfecting their blend of country rock with an occasional touches of bluegrass and Mexican son tossed in. Displaying flawless musicianship and mellow, often plaintive vocals, the Cruzeros are gritty at times, and at others pensive and reflective.

thepulse.ca EVENT DETAILS: This play is on one long breakaway, scoring all across Canada. Two single parents meet while watching their 8 year olds play minor hockey.

thepulse.ca Said the Whale Vancouver-based Said the Whale is a quintet of twenty-somethings whose lyrical observations reflect the hopes, the dreams and the the potential of being that age. The music is deceptively spare, stripped down to basic rock elements; guitar, drums, bass, keyboard and vocals and older listeners will be reminded of the early Kinks in both the musicianship and the vocal stylings. A popular act with indie rock fans in the Lower Mainland, Said the Whale is currently in the midst of a Canadian tour that takes them as far as Toronto. www.myspace.com/saidthewhale Dan Mangan Since falling in love with music as a child, Vancouver folk artist Dan Mangan has become a sublimely accomplished guitarist and writer whose songs are mood pieces, creating whole worlds that are internally consistent, compelling and complete. His seductive vocals show off a compelling voice that is often brooding, sometimes sad, but always like warm honey sliding over fine gained sandpaper. Mangan has won fans through touring the US, the UK and Australia and is critically acclaimed for his pure professionalism. www.danmanganmusic.com Melissa McLelland Melissa McLelland's recent album, Thumbelina's One Night Stand, has received virtually unanimous critical acclaim, both for the quality of her vocal performance and for its eclectic mix of folk, pop, jazz and blues. With a voice that is reminiscent of the two Sarahs, Harmer and McLachlan, McLelland employs her dazzling vocal ability to sing songs of love in all its heart breaking and heart warming aspects. Whether alone with her guitar or in front of esteemed back up musicians such as McLachlan and Greg Keelor (Blue Rodeo), McLelland is simply a delight. www.melissamcclelland.com Cara Luft Strumming since the age of four and singing since she can remember, Cara Luft brings a welcoming wit, ease and grace to the stage seldom seen in this age of fast fame and virtual presence. Spending those first crucial nine months bathed in the resonant thump of her mother's Martin D-18, she was raised in a house and community vibrant with folk music and musicians. These roots inform and charge Cara's musical being, and underscore her depth and commitment to music, to song, and to the vital sharing of these gifts through soulful performances. A powerfully elegant guitarist, Cara is a maven of open tunings, branching out into mandolin and clawhammer banjo. Her writing is a blend of social commentary, imagination and rhythmic intensity, her distinctive voice penetrates to the core. In performance she balances pathos with joy, telling hilarious stories between songs.

Three Days Grace with Seether and Econoline Crush » HARD ROCK/METAL PRESENTED BY: CN CENTRE Monday, February 4, 2008 - 7:30pm EVENT DETAILS: After touring across the world for the better part of 2006 and 2007 in support of Three Days Grace’s sophomore release One X, the band has decided to return to Canada for a highly anticipated headlining tour with special guests Seether. Coming off the success of a double platinum self-titled release, One X debuted at #2 and went platinum in less than 4 weeks! The album has spawned three Number One Singles (Animal, Pain, Never Too Late) and has become one of the highest selling records of the last year. A raw, confessional album, One-X, the follow up to Three Days Grace 2003 self-titled debut, is simultaneously the story of front man Adam Gontier’s personal destruction on the road, and a universal tale of feeling like an outsider. Part of learning he was not alone came from learning his band mates felt similarly isolated, dismayed with the falseness of life on the road. One-X is a roller coaster ride through Gontier's psyche. Intensely honest, Gontier leaves nothing out; it sounds as if he’s ripping pages from his journal. Three Days Grace has developed a new sense of purpose; what started out as fear and pain has led to confidence and triumph. Shaun Morgan is a changed man. For the front man/guitarist and principal songwriter in hard rock frontrunners Seether, a new outlook on life and music has resulted in Finding Beauty In Negative Spaces. Easily the South Africa-bred, L.A.-based hard rock band’s strongest and most innovative studio offering yet, Morgan and his band mates – drummer John Humphrey and bassist Dale Stewart – have delivered a succinct album built from twelve superlative songs. The record debuted at number 10 in Canada and the huge single Fake It which is getting played on every rock radio station in Canada. Don't miss the hottest rock tour of 2008 featuring Three Days Grace with special guests Seether & Econoline Crush. VENUE: CN Centre | ADMISSION: $29.50 • $37.50 | TICKETS AVAILABLE AT: Ticketmaster
