Published Mar 06, 2012Toronto is an entertainment industry hub in Canada, so much so that it's hard for bands not to get overlooked in the overcrowded music climate. A new documentary called FEED, which celebrates the cross-pollination of the punk and digital hardcore scenes, is hoping to highlight some acts that might otherwise get lost in all the Hogtown hubbub.
Produced by Zmuda films, FEED presents Toronto's independent music scene from the perspective of its bands, writers and promoters. From the group perspective, the film is peppered with interviews and show footage from acts like Career Suicide, Cunter and Schizoid, all of whom explain what it's like to perform their local circuit. Journalists, radio DJs and other music insiders also weigh in with their opinions on why certain styles remain underground in Toronto.
While you can get a glimpse of FEED down below, the film will be screened in Toronto at Creatures Creating (627 Queen St. W.) on March 16 as part of a double bill with Sudbury '96. That won't be all, however, as two mystery bands will also perform at the event.
