Best of Montreal: Vote

Alright, so we’re back from Sherbrooke, and spending the long weekend away from each other. A much needed rest, I must say. Encore une fois, merci Guillaume, Jessie et Annie chez CFLX, thank you Sheila at CJMQ, et merci André Laroche pour la critique dans La Tribune (click here to read a portion of it).

Best of Montreal – It’s time to vote

It’s time once again to vote for the best of what Montreal has to offer in… everything: City life, Media, Nightlife, Food, Drink, and of course Music.

I’m going to borrow a line from our old friend Gern f of the former United Steel Workers of Montreal and ask you, before you fill in the answer form with big names like “McDonald’s” for best late-night eats, or “HMV” for best record store, to think about the little guys, the independents who work tirelessly to make their restaurants and shops special.

Same thing with music. There are many outstanding bands and talented songwriters in this city who’s music you won’t hear on the radio, and who have yet to play at Metropolis. If somebody has blown your socks off at Barfly, why not vote for them? I know I did.

How I Wish I Was in Sherbrooke Now

That’s all the Stan Rogers you’ll get out of us. Ever. I’m not even going to tag his name in this post.

All I wanted to do was point out that we’ll be in Sherbrooke Thursday night, playing at Bar Le Magog. Please tell your friends and family in the townships that we’ll be there. And if things go as planned, they should be reading about us in The Record and La Tribune when they wake up Thursday morning.

A special thank you to our friend Trish Davidson (@trishfoto) for all of her help promoting this show – and for taking the photo that’s appeared on every poster we’ve made in the past month and a half…

Sharing the stage with us is the wonderfully gritty and trashy country punk band, Les Chevettes. Check ’em out:

Enjoy the long weekend, everybody!
