The weekend flew by in a whirl of amazing shows, including another amazing edition of Art’s Birthday — just check out that shot of the CKUT Circuit Workshop kicking off the night with their lab coats and homemade circuit-bent wonders. It was zany!
:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT:::
CKUT has a totally rad, award-winning monthly artist-in-residency program called the Montreal Sessions. Each month a new local artist/DJ/band/label/festival/promoter/collective programs a month’s worth of live, weekly radio shows which air on Tuesdays from 3-5pm. Check out the whole list of past curators (there are a ton of ‘em) here.
This month, we’re really excited to be welcoming Nomadic Massive into the studio to host the Montreal Sessions. Rapping in English, French, Creole, Spanish and Arabic, Nomadic Massive is the city’s secret weapon of politically conscious beats & rhymes. Sharing a message of universal understanding and social justice, the live powerhouse has released two LPs & two EPs and toured all over the globe with the likes of Charles Bradley, K’Naan, and Deltron 3030. With a dedication to spreading their sound across borders and cultures, the group has captivated audiences and critics worldwide. Tune in every Tuesday in January from 3pm – 5pm to hear them talk about what’s real in Montreal and beyond.
