Montreal Pops / Quotas are bad for music

fun show tonight at La Sala Rossa -- and a lot more people in attendance than at the last portastastic show in montreal, largely due seemingly to those irrepressible kids in Tokyo Police Club, who played right after us. when i say "us" i mean myself, playing most of the set solo, and then Jeremy Gara and Mike Snailhouse (Snailhouse were great btw) joined me as a killer rhythm section for the last three songs and nailed it:

Boy From School
Song For A CLock
You Blanks
Noisy Night
Center of the World
Spying on the Spys
Naked Pilseners
San Andreas
I Wanna Know Girls

back at the hotel, i innocently turned on the music video TV stations, obligated of course to play canadian content for a certain % of the day, and this means that the unsuspecting viewer of music videos, might, at 3 am be ambushed by SNOW the white canadian rapper and his terrible horrible song "Informer"...i really REALLY could have gone the rest of my life without hearing that song again....anyway, here's a great blog post (you knew there would be one) about Snow and his terrible music...
