We promise not to inundate you with information. There’s plenty happening at POP this week, but we thought we’d highlight the stuff CKUT is involved with. Plus, we kept it real organized.
Tune into New Shit at 3pm to hear an interview with Phil Elverum aka Mount Eerie, plus some words of wisdom about conflicting shows at POP and a bunch of tasty new music!
This week’s Montreal Sessions features a live performance by ritual-pop-gothsters Solar Year, plenty of tickets to be given away, and chats with the directors of POP Symposium and Art POP. Check it out at 3pm!
CKUT will be live broadcasting from pulled pork haven and generally cool spot, Depanneur Le Pick Up from 11am until 3pm. Listen in to hear the very excellent Venus DJs, Lynne T, Malcolm aka The World Provider, and a gaggle of the Queer POP DJs spinning quality tunes to get your POP vibes going.
