Victoria’s celebration of indie music kicks off in 8 days. To get you stoked I am going to post a “must see” act once every 12 hours until the festival starts. So that’s (hang on, I’m doing the math…) 16, yes, 16 acts at Rifflandia that you simply should not miss.

Sooo, to get things started: JPNSGRLS (Vancouver)


JPNSGRLS (pronounced ‘Japanese Girls’) is a relatively new band on the Vancouver scene, with their full-length debut ‘Circulation” dropping just earlier this year. Their brand of power grunge/punk is as intriguing as it is invigorating. Get ready to be blown away when they hit the stage (Victoria Event Centre) at 11:30 pm on Friday, Sept. 12th.
