Published Oct 19, 2022Exclaim! and Shacklands Brewing are proud to present Toronto's 2022 edition of the annual West Queen West Punk Fest at the newly renovated Parkdale Hall on Saturday, November 5 — showcasing talent from Ontario and Quebec for a night of legendary punk rock.
Leading the charge is Hamilton punk outfit/This Ain't Hollywood regulars the Forgotten Rebels — once billed by Wade MacNeil as "one of the best punk bands in Canadian history" for their decades-spanning occupancy of the scene.
The seven-band lineup will be rounded out by homegrown talent Random Killing and Montreal's gutter punk gods, Ripcordz. Further support will come from York Region's rising punks GFU, as well as Ontario punk mainstays Liquor Pigs and Atomic Tomb, plus acoustic punk outlaw Johnny NoCash.
Tickets for the 19+ event are on sale now for $30 in advance. Door tickets will run you $40. Find more details via the fest's Facebook event, and get your tickets here.
