Had a super busy but great weekend – CKUT celebrated its 25th anniversary on the FM dial with a party for the ages (complete with a community orcHERstra playing a percussion-heavy, punked-out version of a cult fave Italian opera jam), had a great visit with a lovely former CKUT intern from Germany + her bff as they cruised through Montreal, and was wowed by the tales of a few colleagues at a real nice short story reading/performance series on Friday evening. The whole while I’ve been trying to amp up my immune system as I fend off a wicked cold and prepping for a show tonight with CKUT pals AJ Cornell & Eyle of Pine (y’all remember AJ, right?) – both excited and nervous to share a stage with those two.
Gonna be in NYC over the weekend so if you’re around and wanna hang, give me a shout.

Lots of weirdness in the studio today as we segued metal into noise into musique concrete into dance into a killer set from Montreal’s raucous and irresistible Public Transit (who are playing a show at Casa on Tuesday alongside avant garde stalwarts AJ Cornell and Enfant Magique)
