It is a rainy wet November – a perfect time to Rock the ‘Ridge with three kickass bands! Rock.It Boy Entertainment presents ECONOLINE CRUSH in concert with guests SOULSIDE IN and SOUNDSTEM on Thursday, November 25th at the Climax Nightclub in Maple Ridge. Advance tickets are on sale for $20 at Ticketweb.ca or $25 at the door Ever since releasing their fifth album IGNITE, front man Trevor Hurst and ECONOLINE CRUSH have been back on the road doing amazing shows and they are better than ever with the addition of Vancouver guitar man Ziggy Sigmund. This September saw the release of their greatest hits package Surefire: The Best of Econoline Crush and, at the same time the band is finishing up tracks on their next album called The People Have Spoken. Expect to hear some new tunes at this show. After moving from Seattle to Vancouver, ECONOLINE CRUSH built a following for themselves with albums such as PURGE (1994) and AFFLICTION (1996). Their greatest success turned out to be THE DEVIL YOU KNOW (1997). With a slightly more mainstream sound shaped by their producer Sylvia Massey (Prince, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tool, etc), the album amplified the band’s audience. The album was certified gold status in Canada and featured five singles including, “Surefire,” “Sparkle and Shine,” “Home,” “All That You Are,” and “Razorblades and Bandaids,” Their fourth album, BRAND NEW HISTORY (2001), went for a more dynamic approach in capturing the band’s live energy. After a long hiatus, in which time Trevor Hurst worked on a solo project, the band was reformed in 2007 to record IGNITE and it worked because they are still on fire, touring with great bands and performing at festivals across the country. SOULSIDE IN, a four man outfit with a unique melodic power surge, from Alberta, recently made the move to the west coast, and the west coast musicians and fans have really taken to them. They have attracted a lot of big management names in the process and they are getting ready to launch themselves continent-wide with their upcoming debut album. Hard driving rock is gonna kick off the this three-band night of Rock in The Ridge. Vancouver’s SOUNDSTEM was a top ten finalist in the 2008 FOX SEEDS contest with their two-guitar metal flavoured sound and they plan to set the bar high for the next two bands. Expect a little bit of sweat on a cold November night.
