Not too much to report today: I saw Mitski over the weekend and got sucked into watching the entirety of Stranger Things. Keeping it pretty quiet these days to save my energy for a very busy August – but more about that in next week’s chart email.
:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT::::
Summer calls for outdoor celebrations, and with that in mind we’re thrilled welcome Montreal expats Steve Jr. back into town for a very special parking lot gig/BBQ on Saturday. For those not in the know, this duo left a deep impression on the Mtl scene with their heavy & impossibly catchy riffs before skipping town last year. Now they’re back for a single gig in the parking lot of 110 Van Horne along with Terrified Michael F, DJ Frog, and J Deady on the decks — a truly all-star crew if we ever saw one, curated by the fine ears of CKUT’s late-night sound guru Spencer Gilley. The forecast is perfect, there’ll be food on the BBQ, and it’s a fundraiser for CKUT. What’s not to love?
