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:
THURSDAY APRIL 11
Free Kick presents Ylang Ylang, Artsychix, and Pyongyang @ Barfly
FRIDAY APRIL 12
New Shit & Passovah present Slight, Nick Kuepfer, Sea Oleena, Year of Glad, and DJ Noah Bick @ the Plant
SATURDAY APRIL 13
Beyond the Horizon & Rock n’ Roll Time Machine present EXPWY, Grupo Skip Jensen, and Porn Persons @ La Brique
