The Indie Machine’s September 2011 Rancho Relaxo showcase was definitely one worth telling all your friends about – and if you weren’t in attendance you’re in luck: you can tell all your friends to come right here and find out what happened.

First off, Toronto’s Groovesmith broke their nearly year-long hiatus, with a new bass player in tow and rocked a serious set of jazz-rock fusion tracks (and even a few wicked cello-tinged covers). Next, Toronto rock quartet Bastard Sunshine shone their vulgar light on the venue with their own style of rock and roll swagger. Finally – all the way from Washington DC – Deleted Scenes rocked the house into the morning hours and taught us how they’re doing it south of the border these days.

Check out these outstanding bands at the following links – and be sure to check out the photos below so you’ll know what to expect the next time you hang out with The Indie Machine + friends.
