Holy smokes, the busy season is upon us here in Montreal… I am still reeling a bit from a great show on the weekend in which one of my projects got to open for the amazing local trio Big|Brave — seriously, you should check out their new LP on Southern Lord cuz it’s a real gem. And see them if they play your town, too!
And speaking of shows, Pop Montreal starts tomorrow (!!!). Maybe you’ll be in our fine city for the festivities? If so, check out some of our CKUT presentations (including the highly-anticipated Ought album release and Pathways to Paris ft. Thurston Moore) or swing by ye olde Brasserie Beaubien where I will be venue managing for the whole fest. I’ll also be repping CKUT on a panel about collectives & co-ops as part of the Pop Symposium. All that said, please be patient with me if I’m slow on tracking or other email follow-up this week as my hours are kinda zany this week…
