Pick of the Day: Dayglo Abortions

Veteran west coast Canadian punk band Dayglo Abortions are at the Gaslight Saloon tonight. Since they burst on the scene in the late ’70s they’ve proven to be shit-disturbers par excellence, weathering an obscenity charge or three and showing general disdain for all the puritanical values in our society.

While the hard-rocking trio (drummer Jesus Bonehead, guitarist and vocalist The Cretin and bassist Willy Jak) haven’t released an album since 2004’s Holy Shiite, they were the subject of a biography by Chris Walters in 2010 called Argh Fuck Kill: The Story of the Dayglo Abortions.

Tickets for the Gaslight gig are $20 advance. To close, here’s a link to some concert footage from Victoria in 2009.
