BYO Records presents an Old School Slamfest
BYO Records along with Punk Rock Bowling are so proud to get all the boys back together again, for an Old School reunion that’s sure to be one of the last of it’s kind!
Featuring Reno, Nevada hardcore pioneers and one of the most influential punk bands of the 80’s, 7 Seconds! They released their first album “The Crew” with BYO and have been going strong ever since. Brothers Kevin Seconds and Steve Youth, along with Troy and Bobby will be tearing it up with songs like Here’s Your Warning, Young til I Die, and Walk Together Rock Together just to name a few.
The original Youth Brigade lineup is back! All 3 brothers will be there for a rare appearance and promise to bring their trademark anthemic tunes like Sink With California, Men In Blue and Old Man Bars to celebrate the 20 Year Anniversary of Punk Rock Bowling!
Pistol Grip, while not from the 80’s, wrote their own legacy in the BYO catalog with their classic album “Shots from The Kalico Rose” featuring the chant heavy sing-along Cruxcifixion Politix!
We’ve got the best replacement we could possibly think of to make up for SNFU having to cancel* (see below for statement), fellow Canadians and BYO Records alumni, the rare reunion of Winnipegs finest, Stretch Marks. They will be playing all the classics from Turnbuckle Stomp, Whadya See and Professional Punks to name a few!
And make sure to show up early for the reunion of Canada’s best kept secret, Brand New Unit. Their 1995 BYO release, “Looking Back Again” is a timeless slab of wax!
The featured artist for this show is Brian Walsby, the madman that designed this throwback poster, reminiscent of the “Walk Together, Rock Together” album cover he did for 7 Seconds! Walsby has been dedicated to sharing his talents as an artist, cartoonist and drummer to the punk scene since the 80’s. His iconic drawings have depicted everyone from The Circle Jerks, The Melvins, Void and many more. You can check out Walsby’s art at the PRB Art Exhibit that will be held at the festival grounds each day as well as our upcoming 20 Year Anniversary Book!

Below is a statement that SNFU wanted us to relay to all their fans…It is with great sadness and regret that due to a Black Cloud of Misfortune, SNFU will be Limping Away from all live performances in 2018. Eric’s Had A Bad Day and has a Broken Toy and is on the verge of being a Loser At Life and Seven Minutes Closer To Death. So SNFU will spend this year Straightening Out The Shelves so we can return to the Wild World. This is A Painful Reminder that Reality Is (more than) A Ride On The Bus, but do not shed Tears as we will endure to make sure our Lovely Little Frankenstein will keep Trudging on to A Better Place. When we get a Big Thumbs up we will hit The Happy Switch and go on a Joyride with a real possibility of a Tour Tantrum. This Is (not) The End, This Is (not) A Goodbye, so Don’t Have The Cow because we’ll be back for at least One Last Loveshove.Translation:With great regret and sadness, SNFU has been forced to cancel all live performance plans for 2018 due to ongoing personal health issues. We remain hopeful that these issues will be resolved and that we will see you all next year.
