Gob

If you’re a veteran fan of the Canadian punk scene you’ll doubtlessly recognize this Vancouver outfit. Gob has been around since 1993, although they’ve been a pretty intermittent presence over the last 10 years or so, releasing only two albums: Muertos Vivos in 2007 and Apt. 13 in August 2014.

During that time there’s been a few line-up changes in the rhythm section, and founding guitarist Tom Thacker has toured and recorded a lot with Sum 41.

Tonight Gob is in town to play a show at the University of Regina’s campus pub the Owl. Sharing the bill is the Ontario-based pop/punk band Seaway. Tickets are $15, or $20 for a ticket/album combo.

To get everyone who is going pumped, here’s video from 2012 of Gob closing a show at Sneaky Dee’s in Toronto with “You’re Too Cool” and “Soda”:
