Hailing from Ontario, Canada, Silverstein have been a well-known name in the punk and hardcore world since the early 2000s; and not just because of their solid songwriting and musicianship, but because of their sheer longevity in the genre. For a group that survived the god-awful label of “screamo” (seriously, what was that?), Silverstein managed to stay ahead of the pack, producing heavy, emotional tracks without sounding like they were ripping off every other band in the genre. Also on the bill is Richmond pop punkers Broadside, whose songs might have some of the catchiest melodies in the scene.
