About this Event

Dirtbag Republic

DIRTBAG REPUBLIC’s debut album was recorded and released in 2015. And sold out immediately. And, as often happens, their

fanbase demanded a second album from them, so 2017 saw the release of ‘Downtown Eastside,’ Mixed by Stu Mckillop (Unleash

The Archers) and Mastered by Svante Forsback (Michael Monroe/Backyard Babies) which also sold out immediately, requiring a

second pressing.

Sound wise the band gets compared to Hanoi Rocks, Michael Monroe, Aerosmith, DGeneration.

Both albums not only found favor with fans but with critics as well, receiving strong reviews from the likes of Classic Rock, The

Georgia Straight, Powerplay, Vive Le Rock, Decibel Geek, Sleaze Roxx and Australia’s Rock Pit, where ‘Downtown Eastside’ wound up

on the website’s “Best of 2017” year-end list in the #8 spot.

2020 saw DIRTBAG REPUBLIC sign with Shock Records/Vanity Music Group with distribution by Sony Music Entertainment.

Their 3rd album “Tear Down Your Idols” will be released worldwide November 26th, 2021 on CD/LP/Digital. It was produced by

Hazard/Wood, mixed By Tim Neuhaus, and mastered by Harry Hess (Monster Truck, Billy Talent)

In 2021, the band has released two videos for the songs Wannabees and Days are Gone. The band recently played their first show at

The Roxy Cabaret in Vancouver to a packed enthusiastic house.

Wax Theatrics

Vancouver-based, Wax Theatrics packs a punch with a blend of power and psychedelic pop. They aim to sonically and visually evoke the spirit of drama as a way of investigating the world we live in, and what it means to be human.

Wax Theatrics released its first full-length album in November 2019. The album was recorded at the historical Fader Mountain Sound Studio and produced by Darren Grahn, whose credentials include high-profile artists such as Metallica, Black Eyed Peas, Bon Jovi, and Motley Crew, as well as local artists, including Black Pontiac and Strange Breed.

The band’s experienced songwriters collaborate to explore themes such as:

Mental health


Fiction & Fantasy


Climate change



Openly writing about these topics is an expression of inclusivity and demystification of the challenges that afflict everyone in our society, from the marginalized to the prolific.

Their style has been compared to Ben Folds, Talk Talk, and Todd Rundgren by Alan Cross.
