Show Tonight!


















CAPITAL DISTRACTION presents:

THE BLIND SHAKE (Minneapolis)

They blew away everyone's expectations even though no one knew what to expect when they played here in January. A truly interesting band that you can't peg into a specific genre. A 3 piece with guitar, drums and a baritone guitar which gives them a unique sound that I really can't describe. You know how Blue Cheer cover of Summertime Blues makes the song heavy and psychedelic? The Blind Shake does that but they're covering a weird concoction of Devo, surf and garage and putting on an amazing show while doing it. Definitely not to be missed.

THE BIRTHDAY SUITS (Minneapolis)

"Everytime Birthday Suits play a show, they effortlessly shred modern 'punk' music into visceral shavings that stick under your fingernails with such a magnetic and irresistable passion in their delivery, and you can bet it's topped with nothing less than 120% aggression and style. Their name doesn't allude that these guys play in the nude, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see some overwhelmed first-timers stripping down in front of the stage, either, so look out for one of the most frenetic performances you're likely to catch all year." - Victim Of Time

WHITE LUNG (Vancouver)

This four piece mixes up catchy late 70's punk rock with the anger and vitriol of the 90's Riot Grrrl/Kill Rock Stars scene think THE AVENGERS meets BIKINI KILL but with a twist of the "weird punk" thing that has been going on in Vancouver for the last couple of years. They've released two solid singles and have an lp on the way on DERANGED.

PREGNANCY SCARES (Ottawa)
