Pup

Posted Nov. 25, 2014, 5:27 p.m.

We're at Toronto's Riot Fest. Hundreds of feet away Deathcab for Cutie are playing the main stage, belting out hit after soulful hit to the elation of thousands of screaming onlookers. At the other side of the park hard rock veterans Clutch are sound checking while countless bros and their tattooed compatriots prepare themselves for an onslaught of sound. It's a busy day full of must see bands, with fans running from one site to another, clamouring for the opportunity to catch their favourite musicians.

Ann Beretta

Posted Oct. 16, 2010, 11:05 a.m.

Richmond punk legends Ann Beretta recently returned for two shows this year, including a stop at The Fest 7. Scene Point Blank caught up with guitarist/vocalist Rob Huddleston and discussed the band's latest shows as well as the future with his solo project Foundation.

Rob Huddleston: No it wasn't hard at all really. We had been playing music together this whole time playing shows as Foundation, which is ...
