PostSubject: Introduce Yourself   13/6/2011, 6:30 pm

I realize that most people who regularly attend shows within the London scene know each other fairly well, but part of this forum is helping the scene grow. If you want, write a few things about yourself and include a picture to familiarize new comers and each other with one another while at shows or anywhere else.

Include things such as...
1. About yourself; your name, where you're from, what you like to do.
2. Where you go to school or work; If neither of those, what you occupy yourself with.
3. Music; What bands you play in, favorite bands, stories from shows.

And anything else that you find mildly amusing about yourself.

Yay Friendship.

PostSubject: Re: Introduce Yourself   13/6/2011, 6:53 pm

I copied this directly from the 519punx board, if you've read it there don't bother reading it again. :3

1) My name's Hailey Edge. Edge is my real last name as well as I am coincidentally straight edge. (I usually don't subscribe to that label but we'll go with it for argument sake) I'm from Hamilton but living in London, I've gone about talking smack about London for months and now I finally have friends, it's the most satisfying feeling in the world. I have a cat that I love more than I'll ever love another human, her name is Yoshi and she sucks her toes. I'm 20 but I might as well be a grandmother, I drink too much tea and sit at home alone and craft most nights.

2) I go to UWO for History and Visual Arts, it's a lot of fun, I find way more joy in writing essays than I should. I work at the Mongolian Grill, it's pretty rockin'. I try to see a lot of bands, I'll go to pretty much any bar or house show that my funds allow me to. I'm actually such a boring person, and I don't ever realize it till I'm writing something like this. I'm vegan, I like eating, I love sci-fi and horror, comic books are pretty awesome too. That's about it.

3) I don't know anything about music except that I love it. I can't play instruments and I don't know how to sing, I'm basically the most useless addition to the scene. I do photography sometimes but I don't really know if that counts. I'm there for moral support, that's all that matter right!?

?) Also, I'd like to add that I'm painfully shy. I don't know how to approach people which has made moving to the 519 area one hundred times more difficult than it should be. If you ever see my I'd appreciate it if you punched me in the face or something and forced me to have a conversation. I swear I'm not that awkward once I get talking. In return for your kind gesture I'll then probably love you forever. :3

1) My name is Dave, I live in London.

2) I'm a janitor--I clean up after white collar business criminals.

3) Listing favourite bands could take all night. Fast, loud, noisy, strange--if it meets two of those four criteria there's a good chance I dig it.

my name is Kristen, I am originally from Brantford. I go back and forth between London and Brantford.

I am also shy and really quiet. Meeting people has also been quite difficult especially since I look preppy/stuck up. Laughing But I am totally not at all.

I love music and food, and I am very particular about both!

I kinda fell out of my local scene most of my life long friends have drastically change their musical tastes. Which blows for me.

Crying or Very sad

I'll give everyone a heads up I am obsessed with emotions elephant

My name's Aaron, and I'm a lover of music.

I've played in a couple of bands (Terrorhorse, Faded Beauty), one of which you may have heard of, the other you probably haven't, neither of which were punk rock.

I love good music, and great songs, doesn't matter what genre. I play and listen to a bit of everything, and am a huge fan of catchy punk, rock, and ska.

I'm currently working on getting a new band going (The Offensive Senses) with my old drummer from Faded Beauty, gonna be a power trio with a focus on catchy songs, blending 90s alternative, punk, and a little heavy and ska thrown in where we can. Still need a bassist, proper equipment, and a jam space, though.

Oh, and songs.

I also record myself and occasionally (very occasionally) play some solo acoustic gigs.

I'd love to get into recording other people, but don't have a place to do it. I'll mix whatever you throw at me, though, if anyone needs someone to do that, and I'm pretty sweet at Pro Tools if you need something edited. I'll also do session stuff if you need a guitarist/bassist/keyboards/vocals on something.

Here's the links:

Hi everyone, I'm Jason and I go to UWO. I'm 22. I've lived in London for most of my life, and I'll be here for about 1 more year, so I'm definitely up for going to more great shows here and meeting great people!

I don't play in any bands and just play the keyboard. I got into punk rock about 7 years ago with punk voter (in the lead up to the 2004 elections), and listening to great albums that were coming out around this time that reflected the political situation in the States (such as "War on Errorism" by NOFX, "Empire Strikes First" by Bad Religion, and "Siren Song of the Counter Culture" by Rise Against). I didn't go to my first punk show until 2006, when Bad Religion played with Dropkick Murphys here in London. I also didn't start going to shows on a regular basis until September 2010, when Pennywise played here in London...it was such an amazing show and I had such a great time that I decided to check out as many punk shows as possible after that. Soon after that I started going to Toronto to see some shows if I was a huge fan of the band, as I did a few days after that Pennywise show when I saw Millencolin. I'm also up for going to punk shows if I don't know the bands that well, though if I've heard good things and liked the few songs I've heard from them...this has been a great way for me to get into awesome punk bands such as the Lucky Ones and Real Deal (who also play ska). Here in London, I've been to punk shows at: london music hall, call the office, centennial hall, and moon over marin (RIP). My favorite type of punk is melodic hardcore (i.e. NOFX, Bad Religion, Pennywise, Black Pacific). I know some fans of punk rock in London, though some don't go to that many shows.

I've liked most of the fans of punk rock and people I've met at punk shows, whether its been here in London, Toronto, or the 3 summers I worked in Lake Louise, Alberta. (The only punk band that ever played in Lake Louise when I worked there was Black Lungs, though I've met some punk fans who've worked at the hotel I did (lol)). One of my favorite times hanging out with a punk band was when Real Deal opened for Mustard Plug here in London this past April...Real Deal came up to me and invited me backstage to play flip cup! I also liked talking with random people at NOFX yesterday: the guy who liked my Clash shirt, talking about how "door nails" is an awesome song, etc.

Some people might think I'm the quiet guy at first, though I like meeting new people and talking about music (especially if I've had a few drinks!) I don't consider myself a punk rocker, though more a fan of punk rock and ska. I also listen to grunge and some alternative rock bands. I'm definitely up for going to more punk shows in London and nearby, so see you around!

I saw your band back in March when you opened for Black Lungs! Unfortunately I was in the washroom for the first half of your set since the pizza I ate that night didn't agree with me, though I could still hear you guys play and I saw the second half of your set, it was great! I recovered fast and got to see the rest of this great show. I don't think I talked to you or anyone in your band, I got really drunk when the Lucky Ones were playing. I'll try to see you guys next time you're playing in London!

Hey all, I'm Sean and iv been in London for a while now after way to many years spent up in north in Sudbury. Grew up listening to daggermouth, Grace Gale and attack in black... With that said I still listen to a wide range of punk and still dream of being a guitarist in a functional(or semi) functional band without drama..though the odds get slimmer with each year and each new band. It's nice to see the London scene growing and becoming as closely knit as Sudbury's was when vicious cycle and attack in black were bands and tuesday night last minute punk shows were packed.

Hey everyone! Great to see another local web forum taking off! The loss of 519 made me a sad panda.

My name's Michael, I'm a local producer/engineer and spend a lot of time in London, Toronto and the East coast producing records for bands/artists of all types. I have my own production studio in the forest city, and do a lot of work out of Charterhouse Studios here in London, Phase One in Toronto and TriMedia in Moncton, NB.


I recently got back from living out east and I'm very excited to get re-familiarized with the scene and meet/hear some great new bands, so if you're in or know a band I should check out feel free to drop me a line! I'm also a drummer and wouldn't mind hooking up with some local musicians just for the fun of playing.

If you'd like to know more about my work you can check out my website.

cheers!
