Total Eclipse Concert Series 2013


Total Eclipse Concert Series 2013

Hi friends,
A former Radio 1190 pal was in town for a visit over the weekend and we had some good adventures traversing around the city by foot, catching a sweet Drainolith/Andy Boay gig and eating plenty of Montreal’s famous bagels. Having houseguests visit always makes me remember how great the city can be — sometimes I need that kick in the ass to go out and do some local exploring.

Here in the music department, we’re real excited about our upcoming Total Eclipse Concert Series. Running Thursday till Saturday, we have three nights of killer jams lined up each curated by a different CKUT music program. If you’re in Montreal, you’re gonna want to be there. All the deets:

Free Kick presents Ylang Ylang, Artsychix, and Pyongyang @ Barfly

New Shit & Passovah present Slight, Nick Kuepfer, Sea Oleena, Year of Glad, and DJ Noah Bick @ the Plant

Beyond the Horizon & Rock n’ Roll Time Machine present EXPWY, Grupo Skip Jensen, and Porn Persons @ La Brique

Want more info? Check out our website, or take a peek at this amazing video put together by CKUT’s own Lou-ease Burns: [youtube]

Shows are $7 each at the door or a three-night pass is $15, available at CKUT. We hope to see you there!
