From The R3-30 Fun Club (That’s Canadian for Web Radio): The Dears have this week’s highest debut. We asked Murray of the band about his musical guilty pleasures. We couldn’t fit the whole call into the show, but here you can listen to Murray belting out “Firework” by Katy Perry.
Join author Lorraine Carpenter for the Ottawa book launch of “Lost In The Plot.” The story of us, part one, more or less.
Setlist, from June 30th, 2011.
Thank you to Matthieu Phaneuf for putting together tonight’s Changeover Mix.
Jazz Festival concert Thursday night at Club Soda, Montreal. At 11PM, it is a late show that stretches its legs a fair bit. The set we’ve put together covers a lot of ground with every album being represented with our faves and hopefully yours. See you then.
GO FUV YOURSELF!
