You Canadian punks are getting lucky this year! The organizers of Pouzza Fest have just announced they will be putting on a “Mini Pouzza” in Toronto on April 25th, in addition to the main festival taking place on 16th, 17th, and 18th of May in Montreal, Quebec.
The show will feature smaller smaller acts than the main festival, including Miracles (ft. ex-Sainte Catherines frontman Hugo Mudie), Adelleda, The Hunters, Cactus Vella, and many others. More details can be found over here.
“[T]his compilation’s purpose is to document some of the hard working bands playing around Southern Ontario. Unfortunately it would have been impossible to include every band currently going so we highly encourage you to check out some of Ontario’s other bands for yourself.
It’s my hope that DJ’s will play these songs at their gigs, promoters with use this comp as a resource to booking better shows, and people everywhere will discover some new bands.
And the next time you hear someone say “The Scene ain’t what it used to be”, you can tell them to go fuck themselves, or even better, tell them to check out this comp.”
Toronto’s Cactus Vella (The Class Assassins/Sinkin’ Ships) recently dropped by Exclaim! TV and played an unreleased song, titled “Ship Wreck”
