CRNKSHFT is an explosive band composed of five musicians from Vancouver, Canada. Their brand of rock is high in energy and it's something you can notice when you see the band live and listen to their songs.
CRNKSHFT's original sound is influenced by hardcore bands like Five Finger Death Punch and Korn. Grunge bands like Nirvana and Alice in Chains, and metal bands such as Pantera and Metallica.
Like an ominous storm in the distance that's slowly moving towards you, Crnkshft's music hits you with such strong dynamics and power that it will knock the breath right out of you.
‐ Darren Grahn (Producer – Metallica, Hedley, Bon Jovi, Motley Crue)

"North Florida's Time, the duo of creative and life partners Michael and Madhava Collins, are giving devotional music a very radical overhaul. The fervent disciples of Krishna consciousness are taking the frothy, bubbly and extremely, shall we say, secular sonic framework of synth pop and marrying it to ancient prayers and self-penned exhortations to cast away material attachments. A spiritual message with a (ear) candy-coated shell, if you will."
-Orlando Weekly

The Faps
The Faps, a lovingly-named duo hailing from Moose Jaw. They are noisy, fun and weird. It's rock 'n roll, but not really. Kind of punk, but also folky blues jammed through a Russian distortion pedal. We might be post-punk/grindpop - makes more sense than pre-skrim at this point. They are two best friends making monstrous music and inducing confused laughter.
This duo kicks out high-energy garage rock with catchy riffs, distorted textures and shared yelling vocals, punctuated by dizzying percussive work. The band tours and performs relentlessly, supporting 5 releases in the last year alone.
Flying Fortress
Flying Fortress is a crusty 2 piece metal/hardcore band from the Ottawa Valley, in Ontario Canada. Comprised of members Brandon Wars (Vocals/Bass) and Steelrider (Drums/Vocals), the life long friends and musical cohorts have been touring and making music for the better part of 20 years. Flying Fortress serve melody, infused with power and sheer jubilant intensity at their live show.

Norine Braun Duo
Award-winning bluesy artist with a siren's voice, Norine Braun will play at Avant-Garde Bar for her first ever appearance in Ottawa to introduce her music including songs from the newly acclaimed album Gone To The Spirits.
Her latest work is based on the engaging and dramatic life story of a Two Spirit, Ktunaxa warrior woman, courier and guide, who lived in the early 19th century in the interior of southeast BC.
Norine received a Canada Council For the Arts Award to write Gone To The Spirits.
"It's her best album, incorporating rock, blues, Latin, ambience and aboriginal song lore."
Tom Harrison - The Vancouver Sun
Touring as a duo, the dark and silky vocals of Braun, who also plays guitar, is joined by “Queen of the Trills” Alice Fraser on melodica. Alice also played keys on the latest recording.
