About Bend Sinister:
Labeled as anything from math to prog to pop but feeling most comfortable in the plain guise of rock, Bend Sinister of Vancouver BC have evolved through numerous styles and absorbed a plethora of influences to become a band so refreshingly original that the struggle to categorize them is a losing battle.
2012/13 was a busy year for Bend Sinister with the band releasing their American debut Small Fame
via Nail Distribution. Their North American tour schedule brought them to CMJ, SXSW, Canada Music Week and Breakout West. The band enjoyed opening slots for Awolnation and Valient Thorr in the US and headlining shows throughout Canada from Victoria to Halifax.
Small Fame enjoyed runs up the CBC Radio 3 Chart (#8), Canada’s Earshot (#18) and CMJ (#115) and garnered the band nominations for a Sirius XM “Best Emerging Artist” award and a Western Canadian Music Award for “Best
The band has recently released their follow up album Animals, recorded with two time Grammy Nominated producer Joe Marlett at Signature Sound in San Diego.
About The Pistolwhips:
This Saskatoon band blends indie rock with a bluesy sound with a guaranteed fun time to create a brand of music that’s hard to ignore. Infused with influences such as Led Zeppelin, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Kings Of Leon the foursome have been able to strut their stuff on stage next to The Sheepdogs, Monster Truck and many other popular Canadian bands.

“MoSoFest in 2012 was an amazing experience for me. Not only did I play a fantastic show, on a great bill to a wonderfully receptive audience, but I was also able to experience so many other great shows throughout the weekend, from a wide variety of artists and genres. With most of the venues being located in such close quarters, it was exciting to make new friends as we criss-crossed between shows, creating a surprisingly contagious sense of community in such a short time. MoSoFest was a great experience and I hope to see it thrive and grow in the future.” Doug Hoyer, past performer
