This past Wednesday, October 18th, our favourite Canadians came into town to play a show. That’s right! Propagandhi came through Union Transfer and brought Heartsounds (Oakland) and Iron Chic (Long Island) along for the ride.
Both opening bands are awesome, and though they had fantastic sets, all I wanted was for Propagandhi to take the stage. Ever since I stole How to Clean Everything from an old roommate back in 1990-something I’ve been itching to see them live. (Also, that old roommate totally deserved to have that CD stolen away.)
They opened their set with “Failed Imagineer” and closed with “Adventures in Zoochosis”. Typically I don’t stick around for the full encore, because I’m old, cranky, and don’t want to wait even longer to call an Uber because everyone else is doing the same. But I mean, c’mon. It’s Propagandhi! This time I had to stay for the full show. And I’m glad I did, since they closed out the night with “Anti-Manifesto”.
Check out the full setlist below and take a gander at the photos.
