Pick of the Day: May Day 2012

May Day is traditionally held on May 1. In years gone by, it was celebrated thusly.

There likely will be dancing at this May Day gig hosted by Regina-based Harvest King Records, it will just take a different form.  Bands featured on the bill include Bright Black, Withdrawal, Kleins96, Knifedogs, the Rhubarbs, Royal Red Brigade, Hennessey, Herd of Wasters, Punktured and Bloody Murder. Bands will be alternating between stages at the Exchange and Club, with doors at 5 p.m.

To fill you in on the state of Regina’s punk scene, here’s a link to a 2011 documentary that features interviews with some of the bands noted above.
