Ozzy Entertainment is pleased to welcome to the Royal City, Toronto-based musicians Down with Webster. The pop-punk-hardcore-hip-hop act will take the stage at Vinyl on March 3rd along with fellow Torontonians Tiny Danza, the Welland-based Ska-Rock outfit Street Pharmacy, and Guelph native son, hip-hop artist Noah23. The show begins at 8 pm and is 19+. Tickets are $10 in advanced at ticketscene.ca or $12 at the door.

"This is a big show for us," says Ozzy Entertainment founder Spencer Osborne, who also manages Tiny Danza through Synn Records. "Getting these four great acts in one place, at one time, is an incredible treat for local music fans. It's the kind of show we don't usually get here in the winter months."

Down with Webster is an 8-piece band that's played together for 10 years. They've toured across Canada and played both North By Northeast and Wakestock. Their Guelph stop is part of a tour of Ontario taking place throughout the month of March.

Tiny Danza recently released their first EP and are touring heavily to support it. Their music will be featured in the Synn Studios film Four Aces and they will be playing the after party following the movie's premiere screening on March 5th.

In 2008, Street Pharmacy released their second album Free Delivery and it was nominated for an Ontario Independent Music Award, as well as for a Canadian Musician's People's Choice Award.

Noah23 is Guelph's rap Godfather and Canada's own "Poetical Prophet." He's been rapping seriously since the 1990s and has released 10 solo albums including last year's, Rock Paper Scissors. He keeps up a hectic tour schedule, appearing in shows throughout Ontario and across North America.

Members of the media are free to inquire about band interviews or passes to the show. If interested, contact the Ozzy Entertainment publicist as listed below.
