While I was never overly into this Edmonton-based punk band, I certainly knew who they were when they were in their heyday in the late ’90s and early to mid-’00s. I probably even saw them live once or twice. Lord knows, they played here enough times.

The group disbanded in 2007. But now the principals have reunited for a tour which touches down at the Exchange on Jan. 24. And I know from my Facebook feed there are definitely some people in Regina who will be looking forward to the gig. So hope it goes well. 400 Strong are also on the bill, and tickets are $10.
