Re: “Halifax‚Äôs punk history

Well apparently I'm late to this party, but I was there so I thought I'd say, Hi. Odin's Eye didn't get made over into the Grafton St. Cafe right away. It was a viable operation from I think winter of 76 to at least the spring 78 maybe longer. I left for a while and it was still in operation when I returned in the spring/summer of 78.
The punk bands were a change of pace as they came with their own crowd and their own beer... We were aware that they were under 19 and worried about getting busted for their drinking. I thought the body slam dancing was bizarre, but everyone was happy enough to host them as long as they didn't brawl too heavily.
I also hung out at 1707 Brunswick Street where we did live theatre. The stage manager had punk sensibilities and a whippet which he brought nearly everywhere he went. I loved that venue. I was the props queen.
If anyone from those days is interested in a chin wag look me up on facebook, Val Barone or add a comment here. :)
