Take a deep breath, Pop Montreal is over. I’ll recap my favourite shows and look towards upcoming local gigs. In-studio guests tonight are Dark Matter and a need-to-know act, ¡Flist!.
8-10pm, 90.3 FM or CKUT.ca – duh!
Also in the last week, the annual Polaris Music Prize was awarded to longtime station fav’s Godspeed You! Black Emperor. New Shit regular (and current blogger!) Dorian was in Toronto for the gala, and had a word or two to say about the event, the jury and of course, the winner.
You can read Godspeed’s internet-debate-igniting statement on the Constellation Records website.
We were also lucky enough to be joined live in studio by local noisemaker RAMZI! We got to chat about small scale independant touring, performing four times during Pop Montreal, being selected to play as part of “Best of the Fest” on Sunday at Casa del Popolo, and her upcoming release on Los Discos Enfantasmes.
It all made for some enjoyable, if mildly hungover, radio making.
