Punk band The Story So Far banned from Toronto venue after singer kicks woman off stage

Parker Cannon and his band no longer welcome at Toronto's Mod Club

Punk band The Story So Far have been banned from a Canadian venue after a violent incident involving a fan.

As reported, The Story So Far’s frontman was filmed drop-kicking a fan off the stage during a gig at the Toronto’s Mod Club this week. Parker Cannon is seen launching himself at the girl, who steps up onto the stage from the crowd.

The band have been approached for comment by NME but have not come forward so far. However, a spokesperson for the Mod Club has confirmed that Cannon and his bandmates are no longer welcome at the venue.

“On behalf of the venue we are appalled by the actions of the singer and do not condone these actions by anyone,” Mod Club general manager Jorge Dias said in a statement given to Billboard. “There was no report of injuries and the venue will not allow the band to play the venue again for their actions. I have never imagined and never seen anything like that at the venue in 14 years in operation. That was a very cowardly act.”

It’s not the first time that the group’s frontman has reacted violently towards selfie-taking stage-invaders. Last year, Cannon kicked a male fan while he attempt to take a photograph with him during a show in Texas.

The Story So Far released their third, self-titled, album in 2015.
