Published May 19, 2009With the 15th edition of North by Northeast coming up fast, be sure to pencil in Exclaim!'s label showcase with Underground Operations Booking Agency, and No Idea Records next month, when a handful of punk-minded bands will descend on Toronto's Kathedral on June 18. Along with the folks of U.O. Booking Agency, we'll be helping bring the sounds of Carpenter, Bridge & Tunnel and Yesterday's Ring, along with Junior Battles, O Pioneers!!! and Orphan Choir.
