Hope you all enjoyed your long weekend. A bunch of pals celebrated birthdays this weekend so there were some nice festivities, plus I got to see the always-wonderful Dorothea Paas grace the stage of our beloved Drones Club – highly recommend catching Doro if she rolls through your town. I was also lucky enough to inherit an accordion from a friend who recently left town, so I’m trying to learn the ropes of it without pissing off the neighbours too much… keep an ear out for some drone-y squeeze box recordings very soon.
:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT:::
Montreal feminist powerhouse crew Slut Island is back for another excellent round of their festival this July, and we couldn’t be happier to have them as our next artist-in-residence for the Montreal Sessions. They’ll be treating your lucky ears to all sorts of fierce, beautiful, and inspiring music every Tuesday from 3-5pm. Get psyched for plenty of interviews, floor-shaking live performances, and a sneak peek into the city’s best feminist/queer/radical scene. We recommend playing it as loud as your speakers will go.
