When you get to eight years, you start to feel a bit like a broken record. The deal is the deal that’s been the deal. The world increasingly sucks, music helps make it better. NOT DEAD YET 2018 will be taking place OCTOBER 11TH to 14TH! Gigs, lots of them, across venues in downtown Toronto. Good music, guided by DIY spirit. No bullshit.
This year, SHEER MAG return to NDY for the first time in 4 years after conquering the world, bringing with them Dublin’s current reigning champs of Power-Pop, THE NUMBER ONES. Twisted hardcore maniacs ANGEL DUST come through, as the IMPALERS return to Toronto, with their Scandinavia-by-way-of-Texas charge. Not to mention a visit from Denton, Texas’ masters of melody RADIOACTIVITY and the return of SWEARIN’, celebrating a new LP. And we’re lucky enough to get a visit from the brains behind Bogota’s infamous Casa Rattrap, MURO, Northern Sweden D-beat ragers PARANOID, and Nola’s synth punk killers SPECIAL INTEREST among many, many more.
The city is still going to shit, and we’ve still gotta do something to oppose the drain. We’ve lost two more venues to “Music City” this year yet we press on. R.I.P. D-Beatstro & Double Double Land. Loads more bands, info on art shows, tickets and more to follow in the coming weeks.
As always, we aim to have the shows as accessible as possible but please note not all venues are accessible. Accessibility info will be available as specific shows are announced.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again — NOT DEAD YET is proud to be anti-racist, anti-homophobic, anti-transphobic and is generally opposed to any and all oppression. See you in October!
