The Canadian punk band SNFU got their start in Edmonton in the early 1980s. Outside of a couple of short-lived break-ups in 1990 and 2006, they’ve been staples on the punk/hardcore scene ever since, albeit with a rotating roster of musicians that’s topped 30 now. The one constant, of course, has been lead vocalist Kenn Chin (a.k.a. Mr. Chi Pig).
On Monday, July 20 the latest incarnation of SNFU is in town to play a show at the Exchange that’s being presented by local label Harvest King Records with support from Skull Central in Montreal. The tour celebrates the 30th anniversary of the band’s debut album … And No One Else Wanted to Play. The plan is for the band to play the album in its entirety during the concert.
Joining SNFU on the bill are Regina punk legends The Extroverts along with local hardcore heroes Royal Red Brigade. Doors are at 7 p.m., and tickets are $15 advance and $20 door.
