No big hair!

Join us for the once-in-a-lifetime event that is INDIE ROCK TRIVIA! Whether you're a fan of the glorious "Salad Days" of canonical 80s/90s indie rock, punk, and hardcore, or a Loveless shoegazer, or an enthusiast of the more contemporary likes of Interpol, Broken Social Scene, Kurt Vile, et al., you are Urged (as in Urge Overkill) to come!

We will tickle your Bad Brains with copious amounts of indie rock* trivia, including:

-Name that song!
-Multiple choice!
-What's in common!
-A Canadian indie rock showcase!
-Image sheet!
-Short answer!
-Indie rock & the movies!
-Indie rock covers!

It is completely FREE to play! There will be prizes for the winning teams! Just show up at 7:30pm at The Ossington on Thursday, February 28, and get ready for the most fun you've ever had in your entire life! (Except for that time Archers of Loaf played Toronto).

Bring teams of up to six -- any player beyond that is still welcome to come, but your team will give up one point per half for each extra player!

*For the purposes of Indie Rock Trivia, the scope of music will include classic 80s/90s indie rock, as well as select 00s "indie" music, plus punk, hardcore, shoegaze, post-punk, post-hardcore, first and second wave emo, grunge, and noise-rock.
