pre-canada day bash!

PUNK ROCK MOONDAZE is a weekly punk rock night that goes down at THE NEW BAYOU. it's been going on for about a month now. i haven't been yet but i'm definitely going to check it out this week. if you've never been you should consider going since there is a show going on with THE VISITORS and VANIER SHANK. you can hang out with your friends and listen to punk rock and it doesn't cost you a dime! this is the first time they are having bands play and they plan on doing it every second week so keep your eyes and ears open.

GAGA WEEKEND!!!!!!!!!!!!

the GAGA WEEKEND was an absolute success. the shows were absolutely amazing and it was an insane amount of fun. huge thanks and praise go to the GAGA MAN himself - IAN MANHIRE.

a lot of the bands put on what i thought was their best performances and there were a couple of brand new bands that definitely impressed the hell out of me.

here's some pictures up from the first night of the weekend.






































































































































































stay tuned for more pictures from the GAGA WEEKEND!!!
