Indie Fridays: PKEW PKEW PKEW, The Penske File, The Flatliners
Score big at YONGE-DUNDAS SQUARE (YDS) with CHEVROLET INDIE FRIDAYS, the popular multicultural free concert series every Friday night in the Heart of the City, from June 29 to August 31. Join YDS on the sunny side of the street for ten weeks of performances from Canada’s brightest artists!
And, each week two Canadian graffiti artists will come together to showcase their unique creative style and individuality while drawing inspiration from the music of the week. The canvas for their art will be a wrapped Chevrolet Cruze Sedan that will provide a striking visual amidst the vibrant lights and sounds of the Square.
On Friday, August 17, the musical rebellion begins with PKEW PKEW PKEW, pop-punkers from Toronto known for nuanced lyrics about the highs and lows of adolescence. Taking their name from a joke on Seinfeld, punk/folk trio The Penske File work hard and play harder with a harmonious and tight-knit set. Then, headline act The Flatliners arrive, going on sixteen years of playing together and bold as ever with their enduring punk/ska sound. Punk’s not dead at YDS!
