DISORDER - Law and Disorder (Ace)

Our Latin Thing Punk fest....
was started up as a way to create a more inclusive space in Toronto's punk scene. This fest will showcase bands in this scene and in surrounding scenes effected by the Spanish diaspora. Next Saturday (August 31st) there is a show at the Garrison (1197 Dundas St W.) called “Our Latin Thing Punk Fest” and we speak with Jose Moreno one of the organizers for the fest. He came in tonight amidst a flurry of last minute organizing to tell us about the upcoming show and spin songs from most of the bands playing. We also get the line up for the after party so make sure you listen to the show to figure out how to get the instruction for that. We start off with the local bands playing the fest.

A few months back I was interviewed by a good friend and former colleague at CHRY, Sunaya Sapurji about a piece she had been researching that looked at the relationship between hockey and punk. The on-line story appeared on the Athletic and is called "How hockey became hardcore : The often complex relationship between the game and punk rock".  Sunaya built a playlist on spotify for the article and I pulled together some other songs mentioned in the article and some harder to find pieces to support the article.
