You like hardcore punk? Coalition is the place to be this weekend!
HARDCORE PUNK AT COALITION: T.O.
FRIDAY JULY 14th 2017
On Friday night, PANTYCHRIST headline a full on assault of a hardcore punk-metal garage-rock crossover.
PANTYCHRIST is the finest in local hardcore punk. The band formed in Hamilton in 2003. As opposed to other local bands in the genre, Pantychrist have a growing catalogue of recorded output. For more info, check out their bandcamp: https://pantychrist.bandcamp.com/
Recently, Pantychrist have been playing select shows and are presently working on a new album. The 2017 touring lineup consists of vocalist Danyell DeVille, guitarist Emma-O, bassist Lexxi La Roux, and drummer Emma Sunstrum.
Here is a little taste of some new music:

BLACK DONNELLYS (Punk)

SATURDAY JULY 15th 2017
On Saturday, we got one of my personal favourites, BEAVER SLAP, to close off the night. These ladies stormed onto the scene back in 2012 and I have been a fan ever since. They are based out of Barrie, Ontario and have gnawed their way into countless hearts across their home province. I had the pleasure of having them on my CD release show a couple years back and I recently played a show in Niagara Falls with their new line-up.
Below is a sneak peak of their new line-up, but seeing is believing. Come out on Saturday!

Other bands on the bill:
Artificial Dissemination (punk)
Caustic Lime (thrash punk)
The Residuos (punk)
See Saturday’s Facebook event here.
Now, admittedly I was going to write a post on RIOT GRRRLs or All-female Hardcore punk bands at Coalition this weekend, but let’s be real. These headlining bands are arguably some of the best hardcore punk bands coming out of the local scene right now and gender has nothing to do with it! Don’t believe me? GO SEE THEM LIVE. I’ll be there, but my mohawk will be down so you probably won’t recognize me ;).
