Hey folks, Nick here ~ catch me hosting Underground Sounds tonight 8-10pm where I’ll be dishing out local tunes on the airwaves at 90.3 FM or CKUT.ca — if you listen to the website and the radio at the same time there’s a wicked delay that’ll make the show especially psychedelic. Anyway, eager listeners will get some additional ear candy from the local scene tonight ’cause I’m focusing my attention on two gigs in particular this week…CKUT’s TOTAL ECLIPSE CONCERT SERIES!!! The first gig is October 3rd and features Afrikelektro, Meryem Saci + more and the second is October 4th with CHEAP WIG, Balltripper and Squalor. I’ll have Sam from CHEAP WIG on the line talking about what she’s listening to these days and how pumped the band is for the big gig on Saturday! I’ll also be joined by Rachel Weldon and Christina Bell, who are hosting If You Got Ears in October, for a triple-DJ-threat not to be trifled with.
The Music Department’s bi-annual concert series is back! Twice a year we present a string of shows around the city that reflect our renowned community-powered free-form stylings. Kicking it off is World Skip The Beat, who’ll be hosting a night of live music and DJs at Inspecteur Epingle on Friday October 3 with Afrikelektro, Meryem Saci (mem. Nomadic Massive), Veeby and Bolbo Art. Spread the word & bring your dancin’ shoes!
For night #2 of the Total Eclipse concert series, The Witching Hour is casting a spell on all our cursed listeners at the haunted Cabaret Playhouse on Saturday October 4 ~ dark vibrations emanating from the woods are courtesy of Squalor, Cheap Wig and Balltripper.
Pigeon Phat dropped by CKUT for a wicked live jam on The Montreal Sessions after Pop Montreal and we got videos to prove it! Thanks to Louise Burns for capturing the magic
