Punk rock quartet part of Slumland bill
Calgary punk rockers Streetlight Saints will be bringing their “Joe Doe revolution” to Red Deer.
The hard-hitting punk quartet performs in a lineup of Rock ’n’ Oi! bands on Friday, Aug. 8, at Slumland Theatre on Ross Street.
Oi! is a subgenre of punk rock that originated in the U.K. in the late 1970s. The music and subculture aims to bring together punks, skinheads and other working-class youth, in a protest against university-types hijacking the anti-establishment punk movement.
The Steetlight Saints’ music is described as “Anthems for a disenfranchised generation of common people fighting back against injustice through song and mind. ... The John Doe revolution has begun and Streetlight Saints will be providing the soundtrack.”
