The Daily Times Young Today, Dead Tomorrow

Toronto, ON has been a substantial city in punk rock's roots since the genre's inception, and like every flourishing music scene, bands come and go. But in the hustle of it all it's just as important to see some new acts on a bill as it is familiar ones. The Daily Times hail from the metropolitan in question and their youthfully vigorous brand of punk draws deeply from the '90s So Cal sound, in the vein of the Vandals and Jughead's Revenge. With lyrical subject matter ranging from social issues to the female anatomy, the Daily Times manage to showcase their vitality while keeping their tongues planted firmly in cheek. Amidst its budding energy and sharp wit, Young Today, Dead Tomorrow is proof that these guys will stay young for a while longer. (Independent)
