The city is abuzz right now with Pop Montreal right around the corner — so much music, film, art, etc to check out. Very stoked to catch Carlyle Williams, Dorothy Moore, and the many many pals who will be gracing stages across the city. A new project that I have w/ two BFFs also got asked to jump on a bill with Pop. 1280 and WTCHS, so do come say hi if you’re kicking around the Petite Patrie hood on Friday night. And if you’re visiting Montreal and wanna meet up for a coffee and chat music, gimme a shout — I’ll be around.
I would also be remiss to not give some props to longtime CKUT friends & supporters Godspeed You! Black Emperor for their Polaris Prize win last night. It’s good to see recognition go to deserving folks, and to see money put towards valuable initiatives. If you haven’t read their statement yet, it’s worthy of your eyes:
Finally, my bandmates and I stumbled upon a fully-functioning mini organ on the sidewalk near my house when we left practice to get some coffee — it truly is a good week.
