Had a fascinating chat with Michel Levasseur, the artistic director of Victoriaville, Quebec’s most notable avant garde music festival, FIMAV (which will be happening from May 16-19th).
We also touched briefly on the CKUT 25th Anniversary party happening this Saturday over at La Sala Rossa (more info here), definitely not to be missed if you feel like cake and good tunes.

You need a summer soundtrack, so tune in for a playlist of strictly Montréal tunes on CKUT, every Monday 20-22h. Underground Sounds chats with Michael Feuerstack, the venerable musician formerly known as Snailhouse, and, batterie-master Evan Tighe – both of whom are hyping new albums with release dates in the oh-so-near future. New music from Sean Nicholas Savage, Saltland, How Sad, and Majical Cloudz. Listen live, online, or post-show on the archive.
