Thu. June 26th 2003 9:30 pm James Bay Community Centre (All Ages) 9:30 pm
All-ages hardcore from Vernon runs head-on into the Victoria punk scene! School's out forever!!!

Doors at 7:30PM, bands at 8PM.

By The Throat are coming in from Vernon to give Victoria another injection of uncompromising hardcore insanity. Coupled with the old school skate punk of locals The Hoosegow, and Nanaimo riot grrls We've Been Had. Plus, a special all-throwdown set from a mystery hardcore band...gasp! who could it be?!

Directions to venue: from downtown Victoria, head south on Douglas st. (in the direction of the museum, legislature, etc), turn right on Belleville st. Continue on Belleville past legislature, wax museum, and turn left on Oswego. Go about 5 blocks, on the right is an elementary school, the community centre is part of the same building. After about half a block, on the right there is a large lit up sign and the entrance to the JBCC, with a big sign reading "James Bay Community Centre 140 Oswego". Parking is either on the street or around the corner on Simcoe in the designated lot for the centre.

Bus directions:
- #30/31 James bay heading south on Douglas. This bus stops right in front of the JBCC (the most direct bus route).
- #11 Beacon Hill, (from Oak Bay/Cadboro Bay area)this goes on to Menzies. Get off at Simcoe (by the big Thrifty's) and you can walk two blocks down Simcoe to Oswego.
