Pittsburgh’s RUN, FOREVER and Cleveland’s SIGNALS MIDWEST brought their summer tour to Toronto’s Sneaky Dee’s on Friday, and between choice lyricism and crushing sets, they gave non-festival goers music to binge on. Band tees, cold brews and tireless melodies prevailed at the downtown spot, but the real winner for both acts was their ability to peel back the skin on your neck. Their raw and unpolished sets clawed at hearts from the inside and gave proof that not-so-perfect punk is still cathartic. Hell, it’ll always stay that way. Check out our photos below.
