More Nice Rock News

Well, okay, it's punk news.

Last night Toronto punk band Fucked Up won the 2009 Polaris Prize. The prize, given by a panel of music journalists, comes with a $20,000 cheque to support their music.

In media interviews last night and this morning on CBC's Q they were asked what does a band in a niche segment of a small music market to do with $20,000 ? They'll use it to put on a benefit and record to support the missing aboriginal women across Canada.

That's fucked up - in a good way !
