Marshstepper wins the prize for pure spectacle in its heady mixture of music and ceremony. Bathed in deep red light, a trio of masked figures in various states of undress enacted an occult ritual involving a sword, a chalice, some sensual gyrations, and what appeared to be a snap-on codpiece. This was scored by a pair of musicians hiding in the back, producing hypnotic industro-rhythms alongside distorted howling and incantations. A live-action Kenneth Anger tableau with softcore touches of Crowleyan sex magic(k), Marshstepper’s intricate symbolism was probably best appreciated by serious occultists while still entertaining to noobs who were titillated by Eyes Wide Shut. Sacred Boners, anyone? (Yeah, I went there.)
FLYER & MORE INFO SOON.

If you’re into snotty 80-sounding punk, don’t sleep on this. Actually, don’t sleep on it, regardless! This is one of the better punk demos I’ve heard this year, and now I’m even more stoked about the current state of TOHC.
This took way too long to come out but was totally worth the wait. toronto in 2013!
The Youth are a force.
Due to there being literally zero venues in Toronto willing to do an all ages gig this night, Greg and I decided we are holding this show in Barrie, at the DIY Art Space here. I did a gig here last summer and it went awesome. Great people and a great space. Really hoping people make the short trek up here for this. This is the updated flyer, please repost! Tell your friends
YO. This is a week today. There are no shows in Barrie anymore and I’m trying to fix that. Please help me spread the word about this show. We have a cool ass venue so I wanna put it to good use, I want to keep doing shows and help Barrie have an actual all ages scene again.
Support some folks trying to bring hardcore gigs back to Barrie.
