Fucked Up Remembers The Last Pogo

One of the most infamous gigs in Canadian music history was The Last Pogo, a gig at the Horseshoe in Toronto on December 1, 1978.  The event–designed to put an end to punk shows at the club promoted by The Garys–ended in plenty of violence with lots of cops.

Recently, Fucked Up commemorated that event by performing four songs, including one from Teenage Head, one of the bands at the original bash.  More at the CBC.
