Published May 03, 2011On May 1, Canadian music lover Don Pyle released Trouble in the Camera Club, a photo book about the birth of Toronto's punk scene in the late '70s. Tomorrow (May 4), the former Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet member will celebrate his new book with one sweet-looking launch party at the Garrison in Toronto.
The evening will include a performance from thee-quarters of the Sadies (everyone except for guitarist Travis Good), joined by a slew of guest vocalists. The alt-country champs will play a set of classic Toronto punk tunes with help from Damian Abraham of Fucked Up, plus members of Brutal Knights, Career Suicide, Burning Love, Fifth Column and Teenage Head.
The show will also include a rare live performance from early Toronto punk act the Ugly.
Being a book launch, the night will also include a talking slideshow from Pyle. This will include input from Liz Worth, author of 2009's Treat Me Like Dirt: An Oral History of Punk in Toronto and Beyond and one-time Exclaim! contributor.
Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts and 8 p.m., so be sure to show up early. Cover is $8, or $25 with a copy of the book, which is out via ECW Press.
