The Mercury Tree
Tommy Alto is a band from Vancouver, Canada that
creates honest, innovative and forward-thinking music.
They strive to keep their songs as enigmatic as they are catchy,
combining emotionally engaging vocals with angular guitar riffs,
held together by a liberatingly adventurous rhythm section.
"Vampire Weekeend meets This Town Needs Guns at a
Minus the Bear concert" might come close to summing it up.
The group's latest extended play "Oceans \\ Carolina" was released
independently in June of 2013, and immediately met with acclamatory
reviews and contagious radio play across North America and Europe.
Alongside the lively, equivocal and Math-Rock inspired first track
"Autumn Leaves", the disc features multi-faceted, highly textured and
intricate compositions like "Oak Tree", as well as "The City Game",
a remarkable balancing act between vivacious musicality
and bracingly direct storytelling.
Their follow-up effort "Atlas \\ Patterson", out June 3rd 2014, promises
a more focused work just as melodic and infectious as its predecessor,
while remaining exceedingly adventurous to say the least. The record
aims to exhibit a fearless exploratory spirit, matched only by
the level of memorability and elegance it delivers.
An outfit of Canadian music mavericks who continue to take the
scene by storm, Tommy Alto is driven to make passionate,
real, and memorable music for many years to come. http://www.tommyalto.com/

Come join Swil, The Punctuals and Comedy of Terrors for a Halloween night to remember…or not remember! The night will kick off at 8pm with a costume contest (with over $100 in prizes), followed by an incredible night of energetic, non-stop rock n roll!
Comedy of Terrors
9pm (doors open at 8pm).
Swil was a short lived, yet energetic band formed in early 03' and parted ways unceremoniously almost 3 years to the day. Very young and naive, Swil set out to try to make a name in Portland. Without the experience, there were often mistakes in their live performances, though often dismissed by most fans and patrons of venues, due to the charismatic frenzy that Swil would throw at you. From nice soft love ballads, to some straight up punk rock, to some hardcore thrash, Swil LOVED to come at you from a new angle with each and every song they would write.
The Punctuals are a Portland, Oregon based alternative punk and roll band. Their music has been described as a cross between your favorite band and your second favorite band slammed together and set on fire. Soaring and soulful vocals on top of frantic guitar riffs and a rhythm section that rumbles like a runaway train. The Punctuals are not to be missed. More information on them can found at www.thepunctuals.com - friend, fan, or fave them if you dare!
