So…

There’s nothing that I will ever write that could properly describe last night’s events. Thank you to everyone who came out. Now, onto something else. Visit Stuckinthecity.ca for more info.

YOU COME INTO THIS WORLD, WITH NOTHIN’ EXCEPT YOURSELF.

CRO MAGS TONIGHT. YOUTH YOUTH YOUTH/IRON LUNG/DSB TOMORROW. What a weekend.

Here’s what you should be looking for tonight:

  • Issue #5 of A BUFFET OF PAINS AND PLAGUES (cover pictured above). It’s the best zine going in Toronto right now.
  • Issue #1 of DON’T BOTHER ME. I have 100 copies, just ask for one.
  • Issue # 3 of FROM THE START.
  • Issue #3 of GROWING PAINS.
  • DAS BOOTS #2, WASTE MANAGEMENT LIVE @ RANCHO, May 9th, 2009.
  • The HITS & MISSTRO (hard to miss).

I haven’t been this excited for a show in a while. Doesn’t MTM look like a young Miret in that photo?

It Starts…

I know, I know. Last night was Punkbar but tonight is when shit really gets rolling.

Tonight – The Bitters, Metz, Little Girls, France Had the Bomb & Danger Bay at Sneaky Dee’s.
Tomorrow – CRO MAGS, Fucked Up, Mind Eraser, Rival Mob, Waste Management, Rampage, Free Spirit, Rah & Burning Love at the Kathedral AND Red Mass, Teenanger, The Bang Bangs & Primitive Hands at Sneaky Dee’s THEN Career Suicide, Mature Situations & Molested Youth at Rancho
Saturday – Fucked Up, Iron Lung, DSB, YOUTH YOUTH YOUTH, Brutal Knights, Force Fed & Nomos at Sneaky Dee’s THEN Omegas, Urban Blight & Mad Men at Rancho Relaxo.

Drink lots of caffeine and sleep in on Saturday if you want to survive.

AND the HITS & MISSTRO will be at the show on Friday night and Pete just got a new Rev order in, so bring your extra dollars.

On top of all this, it’s an otherwise busy weekend in Toronto. For those attendees calling the city their second home this weekend, here’s a short list of places, shops & events I personally recommend checking out this weekend:

  1. HITS & MISSES (obviously).
  2. ROTATE THIS (obviously).
  3. CANZINE
  4. SNEAKY DEES NACHOS
  5. KENSINGTON MARKET
  6. BITONDOS PIZZERIA PANZEROTTOS and/or CALIFORNIA SANDWICHES
  7. AUNTIES & UNCLES
  8. SADIE’S DINER
  9. GANDHI’S ROTI

That basically covers food/music etc. If anyone wants any specific advice, feel free to post up in the comments. Otherwise, see you in the pit.

Oh and I started a zine and it’ll be available this weekend.

What Makes You So God Damn Aware?

Bust out the Leaf jerseys, it’s time to dance.

A Night of Crossover Madness

Tomorrow night at Sneaky Dee’s. You do not want to miss this one. PJ is drumming for MOLESTED YOUTH in the absence of Nick “Fake Dad” Speal. MAD MEN don’t play often. SLAUGHTER STRIKE will have their long-awaited demo cassette. Dan Lilker still needs a haircut. March of the S.O.D. anyone?

CSaturday

I was unable to attend CAREER SUICIDE show on Saturday. From what I’ve heard and seen, it was a wild gig. This post is to serve as an open call to anyone who was there to share stories or pictures free the show. Please feel free to contribute whatever you can. I’ll post whatever we get sent in as well as give credit. Email reviews, stories and photos to STUCKINTORONTO AT GMAIL DOT COM. Anything and everything is welcome.

Attn: New Bands

I have a feeling that there are a lot of newer/new-ish bands in the GTA that we are just not familiar enough with yet.

If you have a band based within the Toronto area (anywhere within two hours of Toronto) please post some info about your band in the comments or email us HERE. Let’s get some new blood on some upcoming shows!
