 Lethbridge art rock/ indie progressive rock duo Clockwork Towns, both dressed in suits and ties, stood in the shadows, backlit by a movie screen featuring an assortment of psychedelic visuals and film as they played a set of wildly experimental ambient guitar based music.

 They played plenty of intricate delay laden guitar licks backed by thundering pre-programmed drums and synth effects. They also played a couple of pleasant guitar harmonies.

 Calgary band the Jung People  got an A+ for innovation as they took experimental music to another level.
 The five band members, who were also all intrumental, made ambient, movie soundtrack style music with a variety of instruments.
The guitarist provided layers of shimmering guitar on his eight string guitar and knelt down to play a few bars on a toy piano in a bright red box.

 The stand up bassist, who had a broken leg, sat on a stool and bowed his bass for a spooky, mournful sigh.
 Their drummer also played a ukulele style guitar as well as providing relentless rhythms full of crashing cymbals.
