Blue Mercury Coupe has developed a reputation for loud and raucous live performances. This six-piece combo manages to combine the best of the bad, bringing together four decades of Americas most marginalized music. They deliver a sound that is at once recognizable as it is impossible to place in any specific way. You hear hints of 40s jump, 50s rockabilly, 60s garage and 70s punk.
Influenced by classic punk rock, muscle cars, loud guitars and fast woman, Montreal's The Shifters are making a long awaited return to Toronto. If you haven't seen the Shifters and you like it loud and greasy, don't miss them this time around
Hamilton upstarts The Goddamn Goddamns are the latest in long line of storied Steeltown punk rockers. Earning their chops on stages in and around Southern Ontario the GD, GDs are a perfect compliment to the Greezfest III line-up
And don't forget pre-show and between set music will be in the hands of DJ Dave ?Big Daddy? Faris, who will be spinning the best old school punk rock, garage, psychobilly and rock and roll. Dave has made a reputation for himself DJing the monthly ?Rock and Roll Riot? at the Cameron House and recently guesting at John & Jenny's Rock ?N? It Up 3.
To make it more thrilling there are fabulous door prizes to be won. Arsenic Addiction is offering up a Pin-Up photography package and special edition prints worth hundreds of greenback dollars. Plus Jimmy Hellbent from Reactive Ink is making the deal sweeter with a chance to win a $50 tattoo gift certificate.
