Total Eclipse Concert Series 2013


Total Eclipse Concert Series 2013

Hi friends,
A former Radio 1190 pal was in town for a visit over the weekend and we had some good adventures traversing around the city by foot, catching a sweet Drainolith/Andy Boay gig and eating plenty of Montreal’s famous bagels. Having houseguests visit always makes me remember how great the city can be — sometimes I need that kick in the ass to go out and do some local exploring.

Here in the music department, we’re real excited about our upcoming Total Eclipse Concert Series. Running Thursday till Saturday, we have three nights of killer jams lined up each curated by a different CKUT music program. If you’re in Montreal, you’re gonna want to be there. All the deets:

Free Kick presents Ylang Ylang, Artsychix, and Pyongyang @ Barfly

New Shit & Passovah present Slight, Nick Kuepfer, Sea Oleena, Year of Glad, and DJ Noah Bick @ the Plant

Beyond the Horizon & Rock n’ Roll Time Machine present EXPWY, Grupo Skip Jensen, and Porn Persons @ La Brique

Want more info? Check out our website, or take a peek at this amazing video put together by CKUT’s own Lou-ease Burns: [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YcnAo6-T5_g]

Shows are $7 each at the door or a three-night pass is $15, available at CKUT. We hope to see you there!

Bon Weekend!

There’s a weekend ahead of us, y’all, and lotsa listening to be had for those who’re looking. What is there, like, almost twenty different music shows to choose from over the next two days? Maybe just leave the radio on. Here are a couple of highlights…

On Sunday we’ve got The Goods on from 2-4pm (check out their video above). The Goods is wrangled by the super hero team of Andy Williams and Scott C who are also les dudes behind the popular monthly DJ night at La Sala Rossa.

Earlier on Sunday from 11-1pm we’ve got Free Kick and they’ll be featuring some bhangra rhythms et plus. Here’s some inspiration:

…And finally, in keeping with our working backwards theme, tune into our metal show Sounds of Steel on Saturday (9-11pm) to check out their mythology themed show. Expect tunes from the likes of Absu, Symphony X, Sabaton, Melechesh, Iron Maiden and Amon Amarth to swell your ears with the might of gods and demons and all the beings in between! Follow the SoS folks on Twitter or call in during the show- they take requests: 514.448.4013.

Ye gods!
