Montreal’s Pouzza Fest takes place later this month from May 18-20 featuring some of the best punk music that’s out there! We’re happy that we’ve had the chance to count down to this festival with you. So far we’ve chatted with Lost Love, This Is A Standoff, Duotang, Blurry Eyes, Julius Sumner Miller and now the countdown continues with London, ON’s Wasted Potential.
First off, care to introduce yourself to the Canadian Beats readers?
We are Danny, Dustin, Dustin, Richard and Nick from Wasted Potential based out of London, Ontario.
Pouzza Fest is an early festival, taking place in May, how do you prefer for festival season?
We usually get ready the same as any other show, pizza, beer, repeat…
Have you taken part in Pouzza Fest before? If so, what is your favourite memory?
This will be our 4th Pouzza Fest, and they all have great memories attached to them! From shotgunning alley beers with Stuck Out Here, to playing with Municipal Waste, Pouzza Fest is always a highlight!
The line-up at Pouzza Fest this year is stellar, who are you most excited to check out?
Seeing all our friends bands (Junior Battles, Lost Love, School Damage, Brutal Youth, The Creeps and so many more) is usually top on the list, but for sure there are some standouts. Frankie Stubbs, DFL and Barnburner are all must see’s!
Pouzza Fest’s name comes from the mashup of poutine and pizza, so I feel the need to know, which do you prefer?
We have a Pizza Pentagram for a band logo…Pizza….All hail pizza…
Are you performing at any other festivals this summer that you’d like to tell us about?
What five words would you use to describe your live show?
Fast, Loud, Smelly, Shreddy, LOUD
If you were asked to give advice to an up and coming artist, what would that advice be?
Play what you like, and enjoy every moment in the band (even the lousy ones…)
What’s up next for you?
A long break.
