Baby’s First Concert

The Offspring at Varsity Arena in Toronto, June 1995

This is not that show — mosh pits and cameras don’t mix.

The mid-nineties were a wild and heady time to be a teenage music fan, even out in the wilds of Southern Ontario. The kids I ran with (“The Pod”) were a bright and artsy bunch (read: nerds) with a constant soundtrack of grunge, alternative, and industrial.




It’s not the band, it’s their fans. Shows from the before times, stories live and in concert.
