Well, it has been two weeks since I have attended Montreal’s biggest punk/hardcore festival, Pouzza Fest.
The term “Pouzza” was created as a combination of the famous Quebecois Poutine topped on some pizza. Unfortunately I did not have a chance to have any Pouzza, however I did get to discover some kick ass new music, and my love for hardcore was fulfilled.
One highlight for me included the Comedy Show held at Katacombes, hosted by Gabriel Khoury. We all chuckled in the rain and had a great time sipping our beers at 3:00 in the afternoon. The Bucketheads also had the chance to sit and talk with some of the bands who played Pouzza, like Animal Ethics and Wasted Potential. We asked a very important question involving shit. Want to know more? Watch here. More interview footage will be released in the upcoming weeks.
Watch our recap video below edited and shot by our Eric Brisson, with some contribution from our Sarah Semple, to get a better idea of just how amazing this weekend really was and read the full review by other Buckethead Jarod Semple here. Thanks to all involved in the Festival, and thanks Hugo Mudie for keeping this going. I am now experiencing Pouzza withdrawl. Until next year!
