This past weekend local Montreal music lovers gathered in the much needed sunshine to catch some rays (and some tunes) as part of the Total Eclipse Spring Concert Series.

CKUT TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS::: May 5, 2015

Hey friends,

Spring (or perhaps summer?!) is upon us: students are free, the sun is out, and half our staff is a sneezy mess of allergies (including yours truly). Got any tips on how to fight the hayfever? We’re all ears over here…

This weekend we threw an amazing three-day concert series called Total Eclipse, and it was great times all around — but my personal highlight was an outdoor gig on a very hot, gorgeous Sunday afternoon full of weird & wonderful performances. Plus there were dogs! Getting to hang out with cute pups at a rad show in the sun is basically my dream come true.

:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT:::
A new month is here, and that means it’s time to welcome a new host for our award-winning Montreal Sessions radio residency program. For the month of May, we’re excited to welcome local (yet global) sound pioneer Pierre Kwenders into the studio. The Juno nominee will be exploring the intersection of traditional Congolese music with modern electronics, digging deep into afro-futurism and beyond. Hear him live on CKUT every Tuesday in May from 3-5pm — and if you miss it in the moment, download it after the fact from our trusty audio archives.
