Re: “Halifax’s punk history

Pretty sure my band, The Nerve opened up for Agro at the Grafton St. cafe. Patrick Fraelick opened for The Nerve. Not sure the Church story was like that. I remember we did a show, with Agro, in the Brunswick St Church which was gutted at the time and was going to be converted to Condos. We had permission to do this impromptu show by the developer, on Easter Sunday and it was billed as Pontius Pilot and his Nail Grabbing Trio featuring bands like Agro and PBX. Of course Gregory Cameron and the Agro band may well have done another abandoned church gig, but that would be news to me. I think we were told to turn it down and the cops might've showed up, but my attention at the time was mixing and recording the sound.

The Cove Theatre Flamingo was opened in 1985 and the Wailers were the first big act to perform.

Re: “Letters to the editor, November 27, 2014

I posted posters all over the city for 25 years. It was considered a freedom of expression to post event posters. Most of the posters I postered were within 2 weeks of the event, but on occasion, there was a poster a few months before the event. These were typically put up to appeal to Xmas shoppers to buy tickets for a show or an event that might happen a few months into the New Year etc. I also consider it a freedom of expression to take down posters.

Re: “Why don’t we just eat the seals?

I've eaten seal in NFLD. It tastes like greasy roast beef.
