This past weekend Altamont contributors and hometown heroes, Fucked Up, played a very special, and last minute free show at the Toronto Reference Library. Strange eh? But pretty cool and pretty punk rock! Nearly 1000 kids showed up to check out the mayhem in the 5 level open atrium venue. Fun fact: Toronto has the most comprehensive library system in North America, and this is our main branch!

Directed by Bruce McDonald ("Hard Core Logo"), 'This is Broken' is a sort of docu-drama compiling actual crowd-sourced audience-shot concert footage of Broken Social Scene at last summer's epic Harborfront reunion show in Toronto with a fictional narrative — written by well-known Canuck scribe/filmmaker Don McKellar — revolving around two lovers (played by little known young actors Greg Calderone and Georgina Reilly from McDonald's last picture, the aural-zombie movie, "Pontypool") trying to make their way into a Broken Social Scene concert. The film is set for release for June 25th.
