Formed in 1988 by vocalist Jim Lindberg, guitarist Fletcher Dragge, bassist Jason Thirsk and drummer Byron McMackin, Pennywise linked with Epitaph Records for their eponymous 1991 debut. Willfully taking their sound in a direction counter to the burgeoning grunge movement, the group helped to define the emerging West Coast punk scene.
While on hiatus from the group, Jason Thirsk died on July 29, 1996 and Randy Bradbury stepped in to replace him. On August 21, 2009, Jim Lindberg announced his departure from the group. On February 16, 2010, Zoli Teglas, formerly of Ignite, was announced as Lindberg's replacement. Lindberg rejoined the group as lead vocalist on October 29, 2012.

Formed in 1992, Simi Valley, CA's Strung Out combines Southern California's melodic punk rock sound with technical guitar solos and just enough hints of metal to keep things interesting. Combined with the beautifully written and intelligent lyrics by vocalist Jason Cruz, the band continues to rock their fans around the world to this day with their seemingly-endless touring.
This show has unfortunately been cancelled. Message from the band:
"Due to a family emergency, we will unfortunately have to reschedule the first stop of our Canadian tour, in London on May 21st. Tickets purchased can be refunded at the point of purchase. The tour will resume as scheduled May 23rd in Kitchener. Thank you for understanding.”
