This week is all about Slut Island here in Montreal – there’s a ridiculous amount of rad music going on, and my head is spinning a bit just trying to keep track of it all. I managed to catch the festival kick-off party last week and it was a blast: Heathers, Guy Madonna, Chipped Nails, and Sivani were all amazing. I’m gathering my energy for week two as we speak.
:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT::: Last week we were thrilled to have local queer punk sweethearts Chipped Nails perform live in the studio during Slut Island’s Montreal Sessions residency, and it’s only gonna get louder & weirder today as we welcome post-punk freaks Gashrat into CKUT hq. Tune in from 3-5pm to hear a very special live performance from these amazing weirdos, and don’t forget to download the audio if you don’t catch it live.

For the entire month of July, Slut Island will be the host of Montréal sessions here at CKUT 90.3fm! Every Tuesday starting tomorrow July 5th from 3-5pm Slut Island will provide programming that will be focused from the perspective of those who see themselves as queer, female identifying/gender fluid people. They aim to change the music industry that is typical dominated by cisgendered white males and introduce a safer space for marginalized people that look for an outlet to showcase their talents on.
For the first two weeks on Montréal sessions the emphasis of the show will solely focus on Slut Island’s Festival activities! You can expect to hear more information about the festival which will be taking place at venues all over Montréal such as Casa Del Popolo, Bar le Ritz and 820 Plaza. Along with what you can expect to hear about Slut Island Festival, you can tune in tomorrow July 5th from 3-5pm for a live performance from local pop-punk band Chipped Nails! Keep it locked for tomorrows programming, brought to you by Ethel Eugene and Frankie Teardrop, to hear some wicked tunes and information on what to look forward to at the festival!
