The Horseshoe Tavern was the perfect venue for the Toronto launch of Perfect Youth, The Birth Of Canadian Punk, written by Sam Sutherland. The Horseshoe played an important role in the early days of the Toronto punk scene. The venue was well attended by young and older punk rockers. Sam was interviewed by Damian from Fucked Up. As the various scenes from Saint Johns Newfoundland to Montreal to Winnipeg to Saskatoon were discussed, Sam would play some rare songs from the first bands coming out of those regions.
