"News Update"

I’m really pumped about the Forfeit show because of how many great local acts are playing. Come out and support, drink beer/root beer and BBQ some veggie/non-veggie foods.

Alright. On to the other news. So the last week, in a very non-hardcore related way, has sucked.

Grave Maker and Casting Curses played here with ClassxWar last Thursday. All those bands are worth checking out. Grave Maker is probably going to get huge. You heard it here first. Casting Curses will be back sometime in the near future hopefully and ClassxWar is from Welland, so they’ll hopefully hop on local shows in the coming months.

I missed the Red Dons/The Estranged for personal reasons, but I hear the show was great for the most part.

Obviously the Carrier got all fucked up Thursday night. I ended up checking out Orphan Choir at the Homostupids show. Orphan Choir is a great band, and it’s a shame that NXNE is going on (side note, NXNE is a sad excuse for a music festival) because they deservedly would’ve had a bigger audience. Caught U.T.I. and was impressed by Leah, the frontwoman. If there are people out there who have their ill-conceived notions about female front women, she’ll probably change their mind. That’s a furious growl.

Also, I missed Strike Anywhere on Thursday but I heard they were good as well. I like the band in theory, however, I find their execution boring sometimes.

Monday is DIE YOUNG. They are playing at 159 AUGUSTA now. I will send out messages to harass you about it soon.

Bio

U.T.I is a four piece hardcore punk band influenced by current Canadian punk icons like Fucked Up and Career Suicide, as well as pioneering DIY bands Negative Approach, Minor Threat and Poison Idea.

Despite being one of the only female fronted punk bands in the city, UTI has ripped the stage apart with renowned local and touring bands including Living Darkness, Homostupids (cleveland), the Endless Blockade and Lewd Acts (San Diego) to name but a few.

With the pissed-off power of 1980s Negative Approach crammed into the body of a petite blonde, U.T.I mixes catchy riffs with the kind of violent fury that sends audiences to the ER with smiles on their faces.
