If you’ve got some free time on Friday afternoon, and you count yourself a fan of indie Canadian rock/punk music, you might want to drop by the Distrikt (1326 Hamilton). Between 2-5 p.m. legendary Hard Core Logo director Bruce McDonald will be shooting a concert scene for his sequel Hard Core Logo II. Reginans who want to be part of the shoot are encouraged to show up with their best rock fan attitudes and apparel (but no clothes with brands, bands or logos on them).
Performing will be the punk rock band Die Mannequin. Plotwise, apparently the group’s lead singer Care Failure claims to be channeling the spirit of Joe Dick and McDonald arrives on the scene to document the goings-on.
To further set the scene, here’s video of Die Mannequin performing their song “Bad Medicine” (YouTube)
