JAPANESE COWBOY, RUNNIN' DOWN A DREAM & The ELEVEN TWELVES

Railway Club, 579 Dunsmuir St, Vancouver, British Columbia

JAPANESE COWBOY - Renowned for spawning ingenious creations of bad taste and dizzying chaos, Japanese Cowboy definitively delivers the innovative meta-rock stylings of WEEN. Ween's incredible musical diversity, reckless experimentation and cheeky humour has traversed almost every genre in existence, brilliantly blended with genuine rock'n'roll excitement. http://facebook.com/japanesecowboyband

RUNNIN' DOWN A DREAM (Tom Petty Tribute) - Mark Ingram started Runnin' Down A Dream in 2009 as a way to introduce new fans to the music of one of the greatest songwriters in rock and roll while entertaining existing fans with familiar hits and standout rarities. This kick-ass band of experienced musicians will blow you away with their high energy takes on classic Tom Petty songs like American Girl, Free Fallin' and Mary Jane's Last Dance, not to mention a song or two from the Traveling Wilburys, Mudcrutch, and Petty's Live Anthology. http://www.tompettytribute.ca/

The ELEVEN TWELVES - Full of fuzzy guitar riffs, soaring harmonies, manic drumming and vintage transistor organ, The Eleven Twelves specialize in playing '60s garage-rock. With a focus on the legendary NUGGETS compilations, they also play obscure gems and one hit wonders from the psychedelic era, capturing the raw energy and youthful spirit of the bands that influenced a generation. http://www.facebook.com/theeleventwelves
