Teenage Head

There is only one word to describe Teenage Head: unstoppable. This is a rock band that has withstood every conceivable tragedy possible, and yet, after 40+ years, are still here; still holding the rock 'n' roll flag high and proud; a self-energizing machine that continues to inspire the next generations of rebels and outsiders. Fuelled by the music and attitudes of The Stooges, MC5, Alice Cooper, The New York Dolls, Flamin' Groovies and others; Teenage Head began their journey in Hamilton as four teenage friends from Westdale Collegiate practicing in a basement day and night. It was 1975 and there was no catchphrase for the hybrid music they were creating. At the same time in New York, bands like The Ramones were also distilling these influences into a new kind of energy. It wasn't until 1977 that this worldwide movement became known as punk and the music industry would never be the same.

Supercrawl Productions and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats have teamed up to present Home Field, a ticketed stadium concert event taking place Saturday June 3 at West Side Studio, Tim Hortons Field (64 Melrose Ave. N., Hamilton), featuring Teenage Head alongside Billy TalentDanko Jones, and Rules.
