Dub Kartel
It more or less took an act of Jah to bring the Dub Kartel together. On January 12, 2010 a devastating earthquake struck in Haiti. After the Haiti earthquake a group of allstar Asheville reggae and ska musicians decided to do a fund raiser benefit for Haitian relief. Bringing together Agent Ishi (Strut), Coleslaw (Gnomebirds), Mike W. (Shining Rock, Natural Healing), Jeremy S.(Natural Healing), Tablesaw (Shining Rock, Cosmic Wind ) Horn players Coutney Hall, Sean Springer and JP Furnas(Common Foundation), from this initial benefit show the seeds for Dub Kartel were sown. Dub Kartel pays tribute to the golden era of Jamacian music. Drawing on the tradion of Studio One, Treasure Isle and Dub luminaries like King Tubby and Scientist, DK brings a classic roots tradition into the modern era.
Lost Cousins
Lost Cousins
Formed in the basement of a student house in Kingston, ON, Lost Cousins is an indie rock outfit known for thoughtful songwriting, intricate arrangements and high-energy live shows. Over the past year and a half Lost Cousins has toured throughout Ontario and Quebec, playing with many acts including Hollerado, The Wooden Sky, and Zeus. The band recently released their debut EP, Not Now What We Were, produced by Darryl Neudorf (Neko Case, Blue Rodeo) and they finished in the Top 10 in the national CBC Searchlight competition. Focused on creating music that fills body and mind, Lost Cousins present lush harmonies and creative rhythms, giving their sound a unique and ethereal quality that is truly its own.
The Medicine Hat
The Medicine Hat is a five-piece band from Hamilton, Ontario making experimental pop music.

Frontwoman Nabi Sue Bersche's nimble, raw lyricism is illuminated by a voice like holy fire: blistering and purifying. Focussed guitar work dances with the hypnotic timbres and soaring melodies of analog synthesizers. Deft lines and dangerous grooves are intoned by a disciplined drum & bass combo. Chaos lurks beneath the surface of The Medicine Hat's tight motifs and rhythmic trances, erupting into moments of prophetic ecstasy. Their live performances are wild affairs. Brimstone at their heels, The Medicine Hat's contagious energy turns rooms into reveries.

Albeit - (Set time: 9:45 PM)
Albeit is an alternative folk-rock band from Toronto Ontario. Influences include Hospitality, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Bekah's ex-love interests.
Gravy Jones - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Gravy Jones is a four piece from Guelph Ontario that plays a style of rock and roll that is centred around head nodding grooves and catchy melodies, all produced with a modern sound. They are strongly influenced by classic rock but have a sound likened to groups such as Cake, Phish, Vampire Weekend, Tame Impala, and Kings of Leon. Gravy Jones is a true live band that can transcend into lengthy jams featuring solos on guitar, trumpet, or even fiddle. The group is currently supporting a 5 song EP released here at the Horseshoe Tavern, and is back in studio currently working on a new release.
