Event Description

Rocket From Russia and CiTR Radio 101.9FM present:

Resolve Records LAUNCH PARTY:
A really cool local distro/label Resolve Records launching their web-site. They also put a massive order of new records which you will be able to flip through and purchase at the show. Personally, I went through their records and the boys have a great taste in punk rock music. I recomend! The board members of the organization were produced in Autralia. Who knows, maybe they even have Frenzal Rhomb records for sale, because its the best ever band from their country!

In order to celebrate their launch we invited 5 awesome local bands to play a show at The Media Club on March 12th. Its also a long weekend, so you can start it very right and be hangover for 2(two) days!

You Big Idiot
Currently my local favourites. They sound a lot like my favourite band of all time and therefore I like them. Good dudes too! They are in a process of recording their second studio album. I'm hoping there will be more songs about food, old people and washing machines.

Contra Code
Recently got signed to Bird Attack Records and their album "Wasted Already" will be re-released in 2016.

The Greatest Sons
My favourite local pop punk band released a brand new amazing EP "Play Through The Pain, Sing Through The Strain". According to the band, bandcamp sales of the new release are significantly lower than their debut EP. But people are wrong! This new one is TERRIFIC! Might be even better than the first one! If this is even possible!

The Binz
While all the bands in town were working hard on recording their songs and uploading them to bandcamp pages in mp3 format, The Binz took an alternative route. Instead of music they released a HOT SAUCE* last year! What a unique strategy! Personally, I haven't tasted the sauce, but its in a bottle and in red-ish colour.
* - hot sauce comes with 6 killer songs. One Minute To Go being the best one!

The Expectants
Because the guys who run Resolve Records are Autralian I decided to have some Aussie representation at the show. Inviting Frenzal Rhomb didn't work out, so I went with a local punk band which features Aussie people. Accrding to me, this is the best Vancouver pop punk band featuring Australian people! G'day!


GREAT SUCCESS!!!!!!!111!!!!1!!!eleven!!!!!!!!!!!!
