Co-hosted by Michael Davidge and Mary Anne Barkhouse aka Eva Destruction of the Gerbils of Destruction (and former member of bands such as Tuesday Murder Club, Restless Virgins and Chicken Milk), the night will feature performances by Steve Bates and jake moore from Montreal, and Ottawa’s own Bonnie Boon. DJ Jas Nasty will spin a special selection of records tailored specifically for the night, with a focus on women in punk.
The pub is located in the University Centre on the Carleton University campus.
This event is organized in conjunction with She Wants An Output, an exhibition up at MacOdrum Library. She Wants an Output looks back at the history of the 1980s punk music scene in Ottawa, through the work of two women who were involved in it: Mary Anne Barkhouse and Julia Pine. The oppositional shout of punk rock was sounding throughout the world at that time, including in Ottawa. A small but vibrant community sprang up here, inspired by the DIY attitude and political consciousness of the movement. Women were key players in the scene, but their story has seldom been told.
