Tomorrow Night at the Roxie: Vancouver Punk, Global Profanity

If you've ever doubted the punk-rock pedigree of our neighbors to the north, ask yourself this: could just anybody make it work going by the name Joey Shithead?

Tomorrow night the Roxie Theater, in conjunction with Indiefest, presents Bloodied but Unbowed, a documentary about the punk scene in Vancouver during the pivotal years of 1977-1982. You may be familiar with bands like D.O.A. and the Subhumans, but what about The Pointed Sticks? The Modernettes? Do you know how to pronounce U-J3RK5? (“The five is silent.”)
