CJLO is very excited to be involved with The One Man Band Festival this year. It all goes down May 15-18 and it will be a one of a kind (oh such pun) event that will bring out the best solo performers from around the world!

Tune in to Revolution 33 1/3 on Monday, May 12, to get a little taste of the Festival when Montreal’s favorite son, Bloodshot Bill, comes into the CJLO studios to wreck havoc.

New Site You Say?

Hi Everyone!

As you may be able to tell, we have a new website!

We are currently under that transitional phase between the old site and the new site, so there may be some issues but we are working diligently to remedy them.

If you find anything that you think we missed, send an email to our super rad web developer Vanessa Reid (

Take a look around the website, we are pretty stoked with this new, sleek look, and we hope that you like it too. 

Eternal Husbands - Eternal Husbands

Matt Leddy and Rick Reid, who call Montreal home, are the musical duo that make up Eternal Husbands. The two musicians have been creating music together for years under various monikers and, once their former and most recent band City Streets called it quits in the spring of 2013, they came together once again and subsequently released the Eternal Husbands EP in August of the same year.

Spazztic Ear Honey + CJLO Present THIRD BASS

Spazztic Ear Honey, in association with CJLO, are proud to present the 4th Edition of the ever popular THIRD BASS!

Spring is peeking somewhere on the horizon, we can all feel it. Undeniably, the best way to celebrate its imminent arrival is to dance like your life depended on it.

You agree? Good, 'cause, ladies and gents, here comes the 4th edition of THIRD BASS.

Come get your fix of low frequencies with your fellow bass heads, as our duo of VJs turn the Playhouse into a beautifully chaotic melting pot of sheer visual mayhem.

Red Mass @ Quai des Brumes

For the past six years, since the demise of his last band CPC Gangbangs, Roy Vucino has been crafting an ongoing music and art project known as Red Mass. With a revolving door membership both on stage and on record, Red Mass has finally evolved into what Vucino had envisioned almost a decade ago. With a core of himself, Hannah Lewis (keyboards/vocals), Jonathan Bigras (drums), and Phillippe Caouette (bass), set to tour this summer and their first full length album, A Hopeless Noise: The Story of Diamond Girl, soon to be released, Red Mass took to the stage at Quai des Brumes on Friday night and showed all in attendance that this band is ready for the next step.

Metal Monday: What Does BABYMETAL Tell Us About The Music Industry?

So I'm late to the game here, because by now everyone has already weighed in on the Japanese blip that is BABYMETAL. In case you don't know, Babymetal can be summed up like this: a group of teenage Japanese girls who have metal songs written for them and they act like they are preforming them. 

The Head and the Heart + Basia Bulat @ Theatre Corona

On a Saturday evening in late March, Basia Bulat played to a sold out crowd at the Corona Theatre in Little Burgundy. Her performance was incredibly pleasurable both audibly and visually. The packed audience was quite a mixed demographic of both older and younger folks. She performed on stage with a bass player and drummer, while she played keyboards. For a three piece they presented an astonishingly powerful, unanticipated sound. They played really well together, kicking out tight grooves, playful rhythms alongside Basia Bulat's almost lofty cloud-like vocals.

Trigger Effect's Grand Finale

For ten years, Trigger Effect has been a staple of the Montreal Punk Rock “n” Roll scene. They are a touring managers best friend and worse nightmare, running around the world and exposing everyone to their radioactive brand of music.

Tonight, Trigger Effect will end their reign. Nick Babeu, Trigger Effect's lead singer passed away this past November, and the band decided that without Babeu, Trigger Effect should not exist, save for one, last, show. Trigger Effect will take the stage at Foufounes to say goodbye to the band, and they will take the stage to mark their tenth anniversary and blow the roof off of Foufounes.

Noah Gundersen + Armon Jay + Cade @ Petit Campus

Armon Jay is a self-described hillbilly originating from Chatanooga, Tennessee. His southern accent is mild and undistinguished in a city like Montreal, but he likes to use it as a conversation pitch. Mixing stereotypes of hillbilly and urban hippy, he gulps down half a "mystique" cider, laughs at the irony of a redneck drinking a cider, then switches voices and advocates for a gluten free diet.

Andrew W.K. + Biblical @ Foufounes Electriques

I have lived in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside and travelled solo through the Middle East, but for some reason, since moving to Montreal four years ago, I have been terrified to set foot in les Foufounes Électriques. I didn't even know it was called Foufounes until the night of the show. I always just thought of it as "that place on St. Catherine's that seems like it's seen a lot of knife fights." That's probably not fair. If you have never been to Foufounes it's actually pretty impressive on the inside, meaning huge. It has that sickly sweet bar smell and gives off an air of stickiness.
