Total Eclipse 4/30

April 30th, 2013: TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS

Total Eclipse 4/30

Montreal is gorgeous these days and now that everyone is finally shaking off the last traces of winter hibernation, the city is abuzz with shows and other happenings∑ In the past week, I caught Baltimore stoner/psych wizards Needle Gun, local pals the Femmaggots and Ought, Colleen Green, acoustic singer-songwriter Swampwolf, and more that I’m forgetting — this mini-heatwave plus an ongoing bout of insomnia has got my brain fuzzier than usual.

get outside if it’s sunny where you are.
