Propagandhi w/ Choke
Thursday, October 7th, 2021
Propagandhi have long been going against the grain of not just society, but even their own record label. Initiated by Chris Hannah and Jordy Samolesky, the band of radicals from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, got together in 1989. Ideally, the band would have loved to skirt the entire capitalist process of selling and marketing music, but made compromises in order to get its pro-gay, pro-feminist, pro-civil liberties, anti-fascism message out.
Considered one of the best punk bands in Canada at this time, Choke are known for their innovative style and intriguing musical sense. They create music that can only be classified by their dedication and love for it.
Combining influences from jazz to punk to metal and more, Choke fosters a sound that is uniquely their own. It is a refreshing extension of the punk music that has influenced their songwriting over the last 8 years. Since their inception in 1994, with original members Jack Jaggard, Clay Shea, Shawn Moncrieff and Stefan Levasseur, Choke have toured Canada and the USA non-stop and have established a reputation for their groundbreaking music and intense live shows.
