The Last Pogo Jumps Again: 40th Anniversary of The Last Pogo!

CAN | 2013 | 204 min | 14A

The Last Pogo Jumps Again studies the evolution of Toronto from small town to big city and it’s pop/counter-culture lifestyle during the early and mid-70’s.


It centers around the first wave of Toronto Punk Rock and New Wave music, from the Ramones playing The New Yorker Theatre in
’76 through the police shutting down Teenage Head and causing a riot at The Horseshoe Tavern’s infamous “The Last Pogo” concert in December 1978. London had The Sex Pistols, New York had the Ramones, but Toronto had a punk movement all it’s own. In the end, the Toronto landscape by the late ‘70’s was forever changed with the infusion of the DIY/Punk/Alternative culture(s) movement. Six years in the making, The Last Pogo Jumps Again successfully explores the whys and wherefores of what was arguably one of the most exciting but misunderstood movements in Toronto’s history.
