Hosted by the Ging Gang Hla tllG̲ad independent music cooperative on Nov. 4, the third annual Guy Fawkes Yourself DIY punk show in Queen Charlotte marked the debut of BAEthoven and original sets by four local and one visiting group, The Coastal Drifters.

The Observer captured photos of all but the Dub Jackson Band and Jason Camp & The Posers, who played after the newspaper’s bedtime. Both bands are now recording albums with visiting sound engineers — the first recording project of the Ging Gang Hla tllG̲ad co-op.
