Oldies, but goodies.

Probably should have posted these when they happened. Oops.

Modern Life Is War - Last Shows Road Trip

Dani from Toronto came along!

This guy showed up. Note the size comparison to the shifter. This bad boy was a litre of energy and gave me the shakes.

After the Minneapolis show we rolled to Pizza Luce to get some eats. Split meal of "chicken" parmigiana and pesto "turkey" sandwiches. Both were incredible as you can imagine.

Breakfast at the Triple Rock was in order the next day (as it should be when in Minneapolis). This is the "Mother Trucker". Two fried eggs over a mountain of hash browns covered with cheese and veggies. Yum Yum.

Modern Life Is War. Last Show @ Moose Lodge. Marshalltown, IA.

The Stage gave out 30 seconds into the set. No big deal.

The boys just loaded their gear off the stage, stage was taken apart, show went on.

"Save me from ordinary. Save me from myself."

R.I.P. You will be missed.

The kids are not alright...

Sunday May 4/08 @ Label Gallery, Winnipeg MB

Pulling Teeth

Good shows two nights in a row in Winnipeg? Weird.

Jon Mayo rolled up with the most epic shirt of all time. Middle finger courtesy of Rich.


Pretty much a brand new local band featuring a bunch of dudes not so new to the local punk/hardcore scene. Heavy on the Integrity influence, which is a good thing.

Someone could get lost in those eyes.

Joel, confused as to how he is rocking so hard.

Pulling Teeth

Great band, I always forget how good they are until I see them play out. Definitely don't like god too much ha.

"I'll breathe every breath as a free man".

"I'll curse your fucking name as often as I can".

Serious riffing going on over here.

Possible band in the works, will keep you posted.

Modern Life Is War - Witness
Go It Alone - Histories
Meat Loaf - Bat Out Of Hell

Born Bad/Condominium/Under Pressure

May 3/08 @ Ragpickers. Winnipeg, MB

Under Pressure

Born Bad

Born Bad

This band is easily becoming my favourite Winnipeg band. Aside from being made up of legitimate dudes, the music rips and Mike doesn't give a shit about anything or anyone when he is on stage (or off stage for that matter ha).




Heard these fine folk from Minneapolis earlier in the day. They didn't disappoint then and they didn't disappoint here either.

Under Pressure

Still kicking around after a few years, which is a good thing because each release just seems to get better.

Compulsory hair whip.

Cheap record scores:
-Dead Kennedys - In God We Trust Inc LP (og)
-Nerve Agents/Kill Your Idols Split 7"


It's about fuckin' time...

First of many, time to party.
