CKUT Garage Sale + Open House (BBQ / CD + vinyl / baking!!!)

QPIRG McGill & CKUT present: OPEN HOUSE 2011

CDs & School Schmool agendas sold on the cheap! (cheap cheap)

On Friday, September 16th, join CKUT radio & QPIRG McGill for a barbecue and CD sale happening out front (or possibly in back!) of the CKUT/QPIRG building on University (just south of des Pins).

Come for the food and music, STAY FOR THE QPIRG McGill / CKUT OPEN HOUSE happening right afterwards! 5 – 7pm, inside.

  • Have you always wondered what goes on inside this mysterious building, chock full of creativity and frantic organizing?
  • Have you thought about getting involved with CKUT or QPIRG, but have wanted some more concrete info first?
  • Have you always wanted to see inside a working community radio station? (all that equipment, all those buttons…)
  • Or perhaps you are a seasoned participant in such things, but just want to come hang out. or get a little refresher. This is the time to ask all the questions and pose all the queries you’ve been wondering about these two awesome campus organizations, but were too afraid to ask (or perhaps you were not afraid, but just have never gotten around to asking them — after all, who could be afraid of such a friendly group of people?)

Any and all are welcome and invited to this friday afternoon event!

Kaie Kellough

Concert Listings: September 15 – 20

Kaie Kellough

By Karen R.

Thursday September 15 La Sala Rossa is where you need to be tonight for Howl! with Matthew Shipp, Matana Roberts and Kaie Kellough. A night of free verse and free jazz not to be missed, y’dig? 8 pm. $11

The World Provider

Friday September 16 Montreal’s The World Provider make harmless, catchy, guilt-free pop. Sure, they’ve got a song called 21 Guns, but it’s sprinkled with cutesy handclaps. See what I’m saying? They’re like the New Pornographers without the pornographers.  It won’t make your mother proud, but it won’t upset her either. Casa del Popolo. 8:30 pm.

If co-ed lollipop isn’t your speed check out Factory Hens at Pirahna Bar for a rockin’ set of original material and a couple of Pretenders and T. Rex covers too. 10:30 pm. FREE!

Toro Y Moi

Saturday September 17 In the mood for some chillwave? Nobody satisfies better than Toro Y Moi, who recently dropped a new EP Freaking Out and will be filling Cabaret Mile End with grooves this Saturday with Unknown Mortal Orchestra. If you’ve already got plans change ‘em cuz this one’s gonna be good.


Oh My Darling

Sunday September 18 If you’re not dropping big bucks to see Wilco at Metropolis, check out Oh My Darling, an all female bluegrass/country/roots band that mix Appalachian Old Time, Southern Twang, and funk inspired bass lines until it’s just right. They’ll be banjo and fiddle shredding with fellow folksters/Sufjan Stevens diehards Lakes of Canada at Le Divan Orange. 8:30 pm. $12


Monday September 19 My pick of the week hands down is Starfucker at Il Motore. The Portland based electro pop gods are gonna tear it up with tropical disco house collective Beat Connection. And if you’re lucky, they might even perform a few tracks from their latest rap mashup side project Skeletron Mixtape #1. 8:30 $12-14

Hannah Marcus

Tuesday September 20 Hanna Marcus’ raw, downtempo story songs are gonna getcha Tuesday night at Casa. For fans of candor and experimental folk. 8:30 pm.
