Since forming in 2011, Mobina Galore, the Winnipeg punk duo of Jenna Priestner (guitar/ vocals), and drummer Marcia Hanson (drums/ vocals) have cut their teeth on an approach to music that operates without fluff. As part of the most recent generation of artists invested in retrofitting the genre with new narratives, Mobina Galore have weaponized their outsider attitude into explosive punk that demands attention on the band’s own terms. By building a catalogue of expertly-executed songs, they’re challenging the industry’s entrenched shortcomings by flipping the stereotype of “overly emotional women” on its head, and instead, turning it into their battle axe.
In the summer of 2020, while everything was shut down due to the pandemic, Winnipeg offered a small window where indoor venues could put on extremely limited capacity, fully seated shows. Along with their local best buds, The Ripperz, Mobina Galore decided to throw a fundraiser show for the Park Theatre who, like so many of us, were going through a tough time. It turned into two sold out nights in a row, with both sets pressed to spin at 33 rpms to create Live from the Park Theatre.
