Pick of the Day: Propagandhi

You know them, you love them -- even though they're from Winnipeg. They're punk/hardcore/thrash veterans Propagandhi.

Founded in 1986, the band has endured a few line-up changes over the years. But one thing that hasn't changed is their strident advocacy on behalf of human and animal rights, free speech, anti-imperialism and other progressive causes. Currently touring as a four-piece fronted by founding members Chris Hannah and Jord Samolesky, they released their latest album Supporting Caste in March.

Tonight, Propagandhi headline a concert at Riddell Centre that features a supporting cast composed of Rebel Spell, local favourites Armour Fou, and Beelzebison. Here's video of them performing "Anti-Manifesto" at a show in Peru in 2007. (YouTube)
