Friday, July 26 –  Helado Negro, Sweet Mother Logic, Saxsyndrum @ Casa Del Popolo OR  The Hazelles, Panopticon Eyelids, The Pink Noise @ Brasserie Beaubien

Saxsyndrum plays driving, upbeat dance music that’s much more than dance music.  Hazelles show will be a maxed-out blast at the brasserie.

Saturday, July 27 –  Babysitter, LVL UP, Harsh Reality @ Brasserie Beaubien OR The Goods @ Sala Rossa

No-brainer pick-of-the-week.  NY’ers LVL UP with west-coasters Babysitter and new-born project of CKUT’s own music director JS with Harsh Reality.  If you feel more like “swinging” your “hips”, CKUT Programmers The Goods will burn up the dancefloor at Sala.

Wednesday, July 31 –  The Moment, Paper Castles, DJ Miracle Fortress, Guests @ Studio Migration

This Montreal supergroup played live on the Montreal Sessions last week and really caught our ear.  Long grooves, polyrhythms, and harmonies galore.

Hello friends,

Everyone at CKUT had our minds blown last week as the station’s sole laptop, which had disappeared from a community event we broadcasted at almost a month ago, was returned to us anonymously in the mail. Although it’s the ultimate bummer that someone decided to take such an essential piece of our equipment, it restored our faith bigtime knowing that the person ultimately opted to return the laptop unharmed.

Now we’re back in action and ready to take to the streets once again – CKUT remains unstoppable.
