An energetic punk band that borrowed its name from a Seinfeld episode performs this weekend in Red Deer.

The Burlington, Ont., trio, The Penske File, plays angsty melodic punk rock, mixed with folk influences on Sunday at Slumland Theatre, at 45732 Ross St., along with Edmonton punkers Fire Next Time.

The Penske File’s 13-track sing-along album, Restless Symphony, is described as a “masterpiece” full of tragedy and heart.

The group’s name comes from The Barber, an episode from the TV series Seinfeld, in which Jerry Seinfeld’s sidekick George is at a job he isn’t sure he has, and given the Penske file to work on — except he doesn’t know what to do with it.

“Penske file” has since become a catchphrase for looking busy but doing nothing.

The band performs at 7 p.m.
