The Last Pogo

It was a special day in Toronto, Canada. It was a historical day for punk.

On December 1st, 1978, promoters The Garys (Cormier and Topp) presented The Last Pogo, the high-water mark of the Punk Rock era in Toronto, at the Horseshoe Tavern. The best Toronto punk bands played that night -- The Scenics, The Cardboard Brains, The Secrets, The Mods, The Ugly, The Viletones and Teenage Head -- and Producer/Director Colin Brunton captured it on film.

And now that event is the subject of an documentary by Colin Brunton. Where you there? Drop him a line.
