PLACE

We are excited to be having this show at another venue we haven't previously worked with. XJUNIOR is going make for an exciting night, and if you've been around Taichung for a few years then you might remember XAGA, which was their former club, or XCUBE which is also owned by these guys.

X-junior (https://www.facebook.com/xjunior.club), which is centrally located in Taichung, is very close to (台中公園旁, 公園路自由路口7-11樓上) Taichung Park, on the 2nd floor, above the 7-11 which is on the corner of Gongyuan Rd. and Ziyou Rd.

BAND BIOS

1. COLLIDER

Taipei based band Collider play stellar instrumental music. Featuring ex-TO A GOD UNKNOWN,ROCKETGRRL, PUBLIC RADIO and CONSIDER THE MEEK members.
We play instrumental music..hope you like it.

"Post-rock with a haunting, soulful quality, the band’s profoundly moving and cyclical melodies take listeners on a dark and beautiful journey."
Alita Rickards (Taipei Times)

雖然Collider有主唱但他的聲音就像是音效器, 搖滾中充滿了希望與熱情, 配合著樂團環繞不絕的旋律就像是經歷了一場黑暗卻美麗的旅程

2. AURORA

Based in Taichung City, and led by Scottish singer-songwriter Alan McIvor, Aurora is an eclectic rock/pop ensemble whose moody, atmospheric sound, along with McIvor’s absorbing vocal delivery take the listener on an emotion-fueled journey as he effortlessly flows from angelic falsetto to guttural screams, silky R&B, and angst-filled raps. Backing McIvor are veterans of Taiwan's exploding indie scene: Wade Davis and Peter Holmes (of .22), and electric banjo wielding Sean Luo.

At the heart of it all are the songs – as catchy as they are emotive, with seemingly endless hooks of anthemic quality, and probing lyrics that express in high doses the extremes of joy, rage, tenderness, love, despair and beauty.

Together since the fall of 2009, Aurora has played an array of prestigious gigs, including some of Taiwan's premier music festivals. They drew an ecstatic crowd at Taiwan's longest running music and arts festival, Spring Scream, rocked the mainstage at Rock in Taichung, went stripped-down and acoustic for Hengchun Internaional Folk Music Festival, as well as having been winning over fans show-by-show at pubs, universities and indie-music events across the island.

The band's debut album, Blacka Rose evolves from track-to-track to include flourishes of ultra-accessible pop refrains, progressive, hard-hitting emo-rock, folk-driven balladry, hip-hop, electronica, ambient soundscapes and even world-music - all the while retaining their signature and unmistakable sound.

"If you were wandering around as a loud-mouthed drunken lout wondering where your girlfriend was, I can tell you. She was standing with the rest of the pretty girls with her lip-glossed mouth open in front of sensitive, beautiful, passionate, young, talented up and coming vocalist Alan McIvor, who’s band includes Wade Davis and Pete Holmes."
- Alitaworld , entertainment blogger and contributor to Taipei Times, on Aurora's show at Spring Scream 2010.

3. REID

We are a band hailing from Taichung City, Taiwan. We are actually all from different countries, but were brought together by our love for music, which isn't limited to a specific style. We try to bring everything we like to the table in order to create something that everyone can find enjoyment by listening to. We try not to pigeonhole ourselves into a specific genre and let it define us. We mainly just enjoy playing as well as we can, in places where we can connect to the audience and have a good time.

Pat Reid has played with too many bands in Taiwan. A lot of name changes and instrument changes, but at heart, Reid plays guitar and sings. Reid has been lucky enough to meet with the best rock drummer on the island David Ramey and the Amazing Ear man Paul Adams on bass. This power trio wants to play big shows, provide opportunities for other bands to do the same, grow and move people on a spiritual level.

4. SPECIAL GUEST FUNK BAND

A surprise lineup of some of Taichung's best musicians will keep your night exciting with a teaser of a just a few funky tunes--and a surprise announcement about Halloween here in Taichung!
