Wow, Montreal, you have outdone yourself: saw Peter Brotzmann, the Ratchet Orchestra, the French-American Peace Ensemble, Nu Sensae, Babysitter + JLK, Mikal Cronin, EXPWY and more in the past week alone∑ still reeling a bit and catching my breath over here in the music dept.

Enough blathering, back to work – here are some charts.

Till next week,
Joni

PS – CKUT is hiring! Montrealers, check it out: http://ckut.ca/c/en/node/315

June 10, 2013: CKUT TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS

Quebec City

Hi friends,

You’re getting these charts a day early since I won’t be in the office tomorrow – I’ve been taking some time off to hang with my parents, who made a stop in Montreal in the middle of an enviously long roadtrip they embarked on a while back. We spent the weekend camping near Quebec City, exploring the old town and the rural farmland of the St. Lawrence. Pretty dreamy.

Back on the local front, Suoni Per Il Popolo is in full swing so there’s even more great music than usual seeping into the ears of Montrealers; I was lucky enough to catch Lee Ranaldo & Steve Shelley a few days ago and Peter Brotzmann plays here ce soir. Later this week, we will be broadcasting live from the Ratchet Orchestra show (Wednesday 20-22h EST) and the French-American Peace Ensemble (Thursday 21-23h) so tune in if you want to experience some of the audio magic live via the CKUT airwaves.

Loud chart returns next week.
