CKUT TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS: November 27, 2012

Hey pals,

This past weekend marked the final step in the drawn-out move from Ottawa to Montreal — finally got the chance to bring up all of my gear, bikes, records: the really important stuff. The rest of the week is looking pretty rad too, getting psyched for this awesome mixswap party we’re throwing on Friday (check out the sweet poster!) plus a couple gigs with the new band and some American friends in town for a visit. Should be good!
