As evidenced by the incredible Ottawa Explosion Weekend taking place from June 16 to June 18, Ottawa is home to one of Canada's most thriving punk scenes. One of our favourite new offerings are Pregnancy Scares, a blistering hardcore group playing blown-out bursts of raw punk.
Thankfully, they've just put their sold out demo cassette online as a free download. The nine-track tape is just under nine minutes in length, but it definitely warrants repeat listenings. Just be careful not to get too into it or you might punch a hole in the wall.
