One of Johnson’s favourite live bands ever is playing this week, along with hardcore legends, locals launching records & more.
Winter be damned. Local bands and touring troubadors are giving us plenty of reasons to get out and party.
Heroes of punk, metal, psych, stoner rock and darkened disco are setting up at venues near you.
Two local bands are launching EPs, one of Canada’s best live bands ever is playing and more punk, psych, power pop & synth gigs to get to.
