Montreal was given a real treat last week when the legendary Michael Hurley made a stop here along with opener Glenn Jones; that, combined with Wolf Eyes a few days earlier, made for a pretty inspiring week of music. You seen anything especially good lately?

Hope you had a great long weekend. I managed to check a lot of things off the spring to-do list with that magical extra day off (feels so good, doesn’t it?): took my bike in for a tune-up, planted a whole bunch of seedlings, and purged a ton of old junk that was collecting dust in my apartment. Somehow I managed to go the entire weekend without seeing any live music, but that’s all gonna change with the Wolf Eyes/Drainolith/Gashrat show tonight — been looking forward to this one for a while, should be a doozy.
:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT:::
Local DIY publisher L’Oie de Cravan is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year with a stacked celebration, and CKUT is thrilled to be both covering and supporting the festivities. Tune into Montreal Sound Arkthis Friday from 3-5pm for a special episode featuring live readings by legendary music critic & poet Byron Coley, and possibly a couple other surprise appearances from artists gracing this fine weekend-long bill. Highly recommended!
