The Last Pogo documents the raucous 1978 punk concert held at the legendary Horseshoe Tavern – A night of unhinged music and unbridled mayhem. On Decemebr 1st 1978, legendary Toronto concert promoters Gary Topp and Gary Cormier, better known as The Garys, presented The Last Pogo: a rollicking, riotous concert at the venerable Horseshoe Tavern. On the Bill were seminal bands from Toronto’s punk rock scene: The Scenics, The Cardboard Brains, The Secrets, The Mods, The Ugly, The Viletones, and Teenage Head. Filmmaker Colin Brunton was there with a film crew to capture it all, from the irreverent punk musicians, and the slam dancing audience, to the police who tried to stop the show, and the firefighters called in to escort people from the premises.
