The Last Pogo Jumps Again

Play Trailer

Named in reference to The Last Pogo or ‘the last punk show’ held at the Horseshoe Tavern in 1978, this rollicking and in-depth documentary brings Toronto’s late 70s punk scene viscerally to life. With incredible access to footage and the musicians at the centre of this counter-culture wave (The Viletones, Teenage Head, B-Girls, The Mods and many more), the filmmakers trace the movement’s roots and legacy to show us a Toronto claiming its punk identity and coming into its own.

Filmmakers Colin Brunton and Kire Paputts, and other musicians featured in the film will participate in a Q&A led by Liz Worth, author of Treat Me Like Dirt: An Oral History of Punk in Toronto and Beyond 1977-1981.

Limited copies of the film poster will be available for sale in the theatre lobby.
