Million Dollar Marxists Toronto ON June 7 to 9

Their anthemic, misanthropic brand of punk rock blew away a crowded Sneaky Dee’s for the best show of the weekend. Singer Luke Nuclear took the liberty of duct taping audience members together with him and other band-mates, inadvertently unplugging his mic cable, knocking stands over, and toppling pedals, only to be aided in keeping the show moving by helpful fan-techs. The Ottawa quintet’s closing set featured not one but two on stage band-mate kisses, and just over half a dozen balls out, tight as nails barn burning beasts.
