Got to catch a stunning show on Friday featuring Lee Ranaldo, Steve Gunn, and Meg Baird just before succumbing to the winter cold that’s been making its way around Montreal… despite the preliminary throat-tickle that was creeping in, the night really stood out and proved to be one of the most memorable gigs in quite some time.
Hope you’re all staying healthy & warm out there!
:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT:::
This January Anastasia (of The Submissives fame) will be making a weekly pilgrimage down to CKUT to host If You Got Ears. They’ll be playing a mix of gnarly (and saccharine) pop music, leg-bouncing electronic jams, and abject synthpop: exploring the intersections where mainstream meets experimenta. Lucky listeners will experience the sonic equivalent of sitting under a vitamin D lamp. Expect guest appearances and live sets from weird and wonderful friends (and strangers), and the occasional sniffling/sneezing on-air as they attempt to survive flu season.
