As part of the mighty POP Montreal music festival, Toronto punk legends the Diodes are playing Phi Centre (407 St-Pierre) on Thursday, Sept. 17. If you’re not familiar with these veterans of ’70s punk rock, check out the video below.

The opening acts are Gordie Lewis (from equally legendary ’70s Ontario punk band Teenage Head) and Montreal’s Frisky Kids, as well as Don Pyle’s out-of-focus talking slideshow (more info on that expo here). The show will be preceded by a screening of the 30-minute experimental film Crash ‘n’ Burn.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., the show starts at 7:15 p.m., and tickets cost $20 in advance and $25 at the door.

The show’s promoters, Greenland Productions, have passed on a pair of tickets to this show for us to give away. To enter the contest, just email before 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 16 (the day prior to the show) with “The Diodes” in the subject line. We’ll select a winner at random and inform them by 5 p.m. that same day. Good luck! ■
