CKUT TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS::: May 3, 2016

unnamed

Hello friends,
I had a great weekend celebrating the fifth birthday of beloved local loftspace La Plante with a big ol party featuring lots of rad performances (including Grace Brooks & the Bad Dog, above), great food, dance party vibes, and a really cute dog. It felt kinda like I died and went to Montreal heaven.

:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT:::
A new month is upon us and that means that we’re proud to introduce a new curator for CKUT’s experimental radio residency If You Got Ears. This time around, we’re excited to welcome sound artist Jeremy Young to host the show every Wednesday from 12-2pm. Here’s a sneak peek of what’s in store, straight from the horse’s mouth: “The purpose of this residency is to reimagine my role as a radio jockey as an active creative participant in the flow of music throughout the set. I will be “performing” my material alongside other artists’ music, integrating my own arsenal of reel-to-reel tape loops live to both intervene with as well as smoothly usher along the narrative of the set. We’re going to explore the dreamstate together, lots of repetition and lots of loops, and each set will wonderfully dictate its own sense of time and time space. What fun!” Not by a computer to stream it live? Don’t fret – we’ve got you covered.
