The Career Girl's Guide to POP Montreal

POP Montreal 2016 - #CJLOgoesPOP

Contrary to popular misconception, many of us "older" ladies out there who work full time Monday through Friday love music too. In fact, we can rock out harder than most of you slackers, and there's absolutely no way we're going to miss POP Montreal just because we have to wake up at 6:00 AM so we can be alert at our desks by 9:00.


Gallant + Eryn Allen Kane + Bibi Bourelly @ Theatre Fairmount

Presented by Greenland Productions

The first time R&B singer Gallant came on my radar was when one of the bartenders asked me to play "Weight in Gold" while I was DJing one evening. I played the track and had to get the album. After listening to Ology, I immediately became a fan and was super excited to see the show at Théâtre Fairmount, one of my favourite intimate venues in Montreal and walking distance from my home!


Haken + Thank You Scientist @ Club Soda - September 2, 2016

"Affinitour 2.0"

The night started off a little slow waiting in line since I arrived there around 5:00, and no one was really there as of yet since the doors only opened at 7:00. Luckily I had a spot secured in line so I could be at the front. I met a couple of people who we're really friendly and were excited to see Haken and Thank You Scientist. There were also a few people from the Facebook group Prog Snob that recognized me, which I find was pretty cool.


The Submissives - Do You Really Love Me?

Do You Really Love Me? is the latest release by Montreal's The Submissives, a project led by bedroom producer Deb Edison, who writes and produces these love yearning songs. The album has a DIY sensibility and aesthetic; a Sunday bedroom rock at work. The album strolls through a collection of 15 songs inspired by early rock 'n' roll, elements of surf and garage rock with themes dedicated to relationships, hopeless romantics, and heartbreak, but mostly just heartbreak.


Pokemon Sun and Moon: A Journey into the Seventh Generation

It's only fair to issue a tsunami warning for the amount of information about to be covered: August flooded fans with a massive amount of updates for Pokémon Sun and Moon. So much so, that it was almost too much to handle. Rather than try and run the last month chronologically, we'll run through it feature by feature, starting with the newly-revealed Pokémon.


Tavis E. Triance & the Natural Way + Birds of Paradise @ Divan Orange

Tavis E. Triance & the Natural Way + Birds of Paradise @ Divan Orange - August 17, 2016 - Presented by Greenland Productions


Boris Performing Pink @ Bar Le Ritz PDB

Presented by Blue Skies Turn Black

On a muggy Wednesday night in August, C H R I S T and Boris played a sold out show at Bar Le Ritz PDB to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Boris' classic album, Pink.


THE PERVERT'S GUIDE TO OTAKUTHON 2016

I had the pleasure of spending last weekend at this year's Otakuthon! Held from August 5th to 7th, Otakuthon is Quebec's largest anime convention, celebrating Japanese cartoons, video games and culture! This year's Otakuthon was the most popular one up to date, with more than 21 000 people in attendance!


Hillside Music Festival 2016

For several years I've had the pleasure to attend the Hillside Music Festival, and this year's edition proved once again to be a highlight of the summer. Located on the scenic Guelph Lake Island, one would be hard-pressed to find a nicer location to kick back and listen to some tunes. Featuring The Milk Carton Kids, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, and Buffy Sainte-Marie to name but a few artists, there was certainly something for all musical tastes. From folk to funk and some electronic heaviness thrown in for the young and the young at heart.


At the Movies Fantasia Recap - Week 3!

The Final Lap

On the last day of the 20th edition of the Fantasia Film Festival, I knew that it was time to hustle as many films in as possible. Even though I am in the rookie number of films viewed this year, I am content with every film the festival has bestowed upon my eyes. I hoped to participate in four screenings on the last day.
