Hey all,

We here at CKUT are getting real psyched for this year’s edition of Art’s Birthday — we’re gonna be throwing a huge party on Friday at Brasserie Beaubien (73 Beaubien est) with installation art, cake, and more music than yr ears can handle. Local superstars Nouveau Zodiaque, Aim Low, Freelove Fenner, Fakes, Moonhag, and the CKUT Circuit Workshop will be taking the stage to celebrate ART in all its wild sonic glory. Dig it, Montreal.
