It’s been a week of birthdays around here as several CKUT-ers celebrate another year around the sun, myself included. After many years of not really doing anything for my birthday, this year some awesome pals banded together and threw a killer surprise party that left half our staff decimated the following day — but it was “totally worth it”, in the words of at least one hangover victim.
This weekend also celebrated the second anniversary of Loose-Fit, the not-for-profit booking collective that a handful of us CKUT-ers (and a couple non-CKUT-ers) run in our down time — plenty of good music and good times were had, including a great performance from Crabe (above). To top it all off, fierce Syracuse ragers Perfect Pussy played an amazing show at the Casa on Sunday… if you weren’t there, you missed out.
Winter in Montreal ain’t getting us down.
