The Diodes were the ground zero of the 1977 Toronto punk explosion, running Canada's first punk club, The Crash'n'Burn and the first Canadian punk band signed to a major label, CBS, with their debut album released worldwide in the fall of 1977, ahead of the Sex Pistols and many of their UK and US peers. After releasing three other albums between 1978 and 1982, the band goes on a long hiatus. The original band re-unites in 2010, soon headlining shows in Canada and This is the Diodes first Montreal appearance in almost 30 years!

Canadian musician and producer, Don Pyle is making a special appearance to present Don Pyle’s Out-of-Focus Talking Slideshow–a guided tour of Toronto's under documented Punk scene throughout the decades.
