NECK (Ottawa Punk Uncle D Records)
NECK are a punk-pop gang currently hiding out at Cretin Manner located in Lebreton Flats, Ontario. Less books ... More hooks! FFO the Ramones.
SCHOOL DAMAGE (T.O. Punk Rock)
School Damage’s gritty but melodic style of punk rock is a mix of raw hardcore energy and Ramones- four chords worship. The songs start and stop on a dime while dripping enough piss and vinegar to leave you dehydrated and thirsty for more. These guys NEVER disappoint - Treat yourself to a TARG favourite!!!!!
MUFFLER CRUNCH (Ottawa Hard Rock/Doom Duo)
MUFFLER CRUNCH is a male/female heavy rock duo based out of Hull, Québec, Canada. For over 10 years, its members have used nothing but an ELECTRIFIED acoustic guitar, a drum set and powerful vocals to captivate audiences both large and small. The heaviest music in the world on the crappiest guitar on earth. A true gem and creative trailblazer in the Ottawa/Gatineau heavy music scene!
WIRE CUFFS (Ottawa 80’s Hardcore)
Wicked Grimecore/Punk band fronted by our very own TARG perogi WIZARD Brendan Allistone
AT BLACK SQUIRREL BOOKS
1073 bank st
JON CREEDEN & THE FLYING HELLFISH (Ottawa folk punk)
After what feels like a lifetime of playing solo, Jon can finally give his voice a bit of a break now that he has anywhere from 2 to 4 other people backing him up. He still sweats just as much, but now he can actually still talk after a show.
DEATHSTICKS (Ottawa/Peterborough PowerSlop Noise)
A noisy 2 piece that kick out high-energy garage rock with catchy riffs, distorted textures and combined vocals, punctuated by dizzying percussive work.
FLAWS (Ottawa Punk)
Flaws Is an Ottawa based trio made up of members of The Tenenbaums and Muelkik (RIP). We play punkrock and we love a good party.
