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.
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.
The live broadcast Wednesday will go something like this:
1-1:15pm brings a collision between Peaches and The World Provider
1:15-1:30pm is an interview with documentary filmmaker Kevin Hegge, whose film She Said Boom will be screening on Thursday at 7pm at Quartiers Pop
2-3pm Queer POP chats with organizers and performers Tamika, Joseph Gabereau, Peanut Brittle and Pamela Dwyer in anticipation of their show Sunday
Pop by CKUT’s Circuit Workshop over at Espace POP to chat about oscillators, handmade electronics and circuit bending at 2pm, then head down to Église POP Little Burgundy to party pow-wow step style with A Tribe Called Red, Nautiluss, Prison Garde and Blank Capsule starting at 11pm.
Sit in on a conversation between disco legend Jimmy “Bo” Horne and Roland Pemberton (AKA Cadence Weapon) at Quartiers POP happening at 5:30pm, then hit up Église Little Burgundy to dance with Jimmy “Bo” Horne himself, along with Mozart’s Sister, and Loose Joints at 11pm.
Good luck and have fun!
