High Jinks are often regarded as one of the best hardcore/punk bands to have come out of Edmonton. As a fast but heavy take on ‘90s era East coast youth-crew, they have a lot to say. They changed the landscape and forced the rest of the locals to look inward and work harder. Since High Jinks called it quits, a series of awesome bands have absorbed members or sprouted from the ashes, including MAUS, No Problem, Tempest (Vancouver) and one of Edmonton’s best combinations of punk roots meets classy rock and roll, Stepmothers. Don’t miss as High Jinks reunites at UP+DT16 this October!
