Beers & Books Event - Toronto Punk in the 1980s "Tomorrow Is Too Late"
There are 5 Wednesdays in January, and that means 5 Pint Size Conversations! Join us on Wednesday Jan. 23 for a Bonus Wednesday, when we sit down to talk TOHC BOOK: Tomorrow Is Too Late - Toronto Hardcore Punk in the 1980s - the new book from UXB Press, that takes a look back at Hardcore Punk in Toronto in the 1980s!
Join us in the brewery along with panelists Derek Emerson (MSI guitarist), Shawn Chirrey (Still Thinking fanzine), Simon Harvey (Ugly Pop label), Fran Grasso (Urbain Grandier label), and Sue McCluskey (Principal at Goods & Services) as we discuss the history of TOHC, including comparisons of the downtown vs suburban scenes, how punk changed lives, landmark gigs, slamdancing, thrashing, and hardcore punk’s influence on the greater local culture over the years.
Simon Harvey is also bringing the tunes - he'll be spinning classic worldwide punk on original 45s, with an emphasis on Canadian/Toronto stuff!
This is a free event, and everyone is welcome. Copies of the book will be for sale at the brewery!
