World Premiere of New Last Pogo Doc Coming to CMW

Along with the digital conference, the broadcasting conference, the music conference, the music festival and the comedy festival, Canadian Music Week also offers a film festival.  This is one of the docs I’m going to have to check out.

The Last Pogo was an event at the Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto in 1978 that devolved into a riot. It remains one of the most legendary moments of the original punk scene.  The original Last Pogo film was a short one, running well less than an hour.  This edition runs a whopping 204 minutes.  Here’s a chance to see how it all went down.
