Firehall Brewery and Montreal’s Stomp Records presents… The Real McKenzies! On tour with the Anti-Queens! Sponsored by RESPECT Record & Skate on Main Street!
Real McKenzies is a Celtic punk band founded in Vancouver, Canada in 1992, described as “a guitar-and-bagpipe wailing Celtic punk rock-and-roll”. They have set themselves apart from other punk bands by including bagpipes in all of their studio albums and at most of their concerts, much like the similar bands Dropkick Murphys and Flatfoot 56. Lead singer Paul McKenzie leads a high-energy act which does extensive concert tours, including an eight-month, twenty-three-country tour in a van. On these tours they have shared the stage with Shane MacGowan, Rancid, NOFX, Flogging Molly, The Misfits, and even Metallica. For fans of: The Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly, Gogol Bordello, The Pogues.
A staple of the Toronto scene for over a decade, The Anti-Queens are an ultra hard-working, punked up rock n’ roll quartet of super high-powered women who give the male-dominated music industry a run for their money. They’ve become infamous in their hometown of Toronto for their insanely high-energy, take-no-prisoner live performances. They have toured across Canada, The United States & Europe as direct support for Danko Jones, Streetlight Manifesto, Cancer Bats, The Planet Smashers, Protest The Hero, illScarlett & The Creepshow, to name a few.
Seating will be very limited and first-come-first-serve, so expect to dance!
