paro! is an experimental rock trio that draws influences from various sub-genres of indie rock like math rock, midwest emo, and shoegaze. paro! has largely been a recording project for the last few years, but with new music on the horizon, they are putting together a live set to bring their sound to the stage.

Misfortune Tellers

Emerging from the post pandemic music scene in Edmonton Alberta, Misfortune Tellers are a hard hitting four piece Pop Punk group taking the city by storm. Blending emotionally raw lyrics and twinkly guitar riffs with shredding solos and blistering punk rock drum fills, Misfortune Tellers attack the stage with an energy and nuance that sets them apart from the rest and straddle the line between irreverent and sincere with their lively performance and witty stage banter. Misfortune Tellers began the year by playing on the main stage at the legendary Starlite Room in Edmonton and have spent the summer hitting the festival circuit hard. Featured prominently as a part of the inaugural Hi-Light Fest and as the Headliners of 2023’s Next Fest new artists showcase, and a part of Purple City Music Festival.


Trireme began as a Summer project in 2023 between Grant Comin, Cohn Hendricks, and Bryn Lipinski. The group’s specialty is heavily arranging classical and jazz compositions in a progressive style. 

Delta 88
Delta 88 is an up and coming Edmonton rock group, in the process of writing and recording their debut album. 
Hot off the release of their first single, “Let’s Call it Pride”, the band is set to perform and appear across the city frequently this winter season. With morally, politically, and emotionally driven lyrics, the bands focus lies in creating and presenting intense collective emotion through their work.
