CKUT TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS::: July 29, 2014

Hey Friends,

CKUT arts & culture coordinator Tamara and I spent the weekend helping my roommate move back to her rural Eastern Ontario hometown, and it ended up being less heavy lifting and more chilling in the country – exactly what we city folks needed. Lots of eating BBQ and meeting new pals, including Tamara’s new bff (pictured above). Aren’t they cute?

TONIGHT on Rock’n'Roll Time Machine:

Rock wizardess Belle Indifference will be joined by the mastermind behind HELLENICA. They’ll be playing selections from the 2012 release THEY ARE OUT FOR BLOOD as well as some of Jim Demos’ favorite records.

Mixing spaghetti-western, orthodox chants, rock, and drone, Jim Demos harmonizes these
elements into beautiful arrangements that are eventually guided into a vortex of carefully
controlled sonic chaos.
Join us, tonight from 11pm EST till midnight.

It’s been a pretty crazy (and loud) week here at CKUT as we’ve welcomed a string of awesome local bands to play live in-studio, including Fakes and Steve Jr — the latter of whom rocked so hard that the floors shook and CDs vibrated right off their shelves. We’ll have full audio & visual documentation of these sessions and many more up very soon on the CKUT music blog… stay tuned, friends.

Hey friends,

I had some pals visiting from the US last week and it was a nice chance to re-discover all that’s great about Montreal… made for a pretty nice week. Played a couple of good shows, saw CKUT buds Ought as they rolled back through town, and managed to somehow get two flats on my bike in the span of 24 hours… yeesh.

I’ll also be in Ottawa on Friday to play a gig, come say hi if you find yourself in the nation’s capital.
