“Hundreds of young people had been waiting on the street for the show. Several picked up material from a nearby construction site and hurled the items at cars and windows, a witness said. At least four cars were overturned and set on fire. Flames were shooting out the side windows later as firefighters directed streams of water at them.
Angered by the cancellation of a punk concert in Montreal, dozens of people smashed windows and overturned cars, setting them ablaze last night (Oct. 14). The concertgoers, many of them youths sporting spiked-hair and cutoff denim jackets, rioted shortly after 8 p.m. when they were told the groups the Exploited and Total Chaos wouldn’t be performing at Medley Hall.”
