Listen to the Philharmonia Mundi Montreal perform Dvorak's 9th

On December 7th, CJLO walked ALL the way over to the Oscar Peterson Concert Hall where the Orchestra Philharmonia Mundi Montreal was holding a concert where they would play Dvorak's 9th symphony (New World Symphony) along with various other selections.  We did a live broadcast and thought it would be good to put it up for any of you that may have missed it.  The full concert program is:

Julian Casablancas

Julian Casablancas + The Voidz delivered an awesome performance in a filled Corona Theatre on November 22, 2014. The openers, punk metal band Cerebral Ballzy, and hip hop duo Shabazz Palaces, set a good mood for the audience. Shabazz Palaces even performed "Father Electricity" with The Voidz, which was a great mix of hip-rock! The many fans that lined up for the snow earlier that night were ecstatic when Julian took the stage around 10:15. The band opened with "Xerox" off their album Tyranny, released last September on Cult Records.

We Just Wanna Have Some Fun, Down At The Rock And Roll Club

As Mother Nature transforms our lovely city into a winter wonderland, you can either piss and moan about the snow and cold, or embrace the beauty of a Quebec winter and enjoy all that it has to offer. Go tobogganing on Mont-Royal, have a hot mug of cocoa with a dash of something stronger, build a snowman, but most important of all, join all your fellow music lovers inside any number of cozy bars all over town and enjoy some live music. Here are a few options Prince Palu thought you might like.

'Dear White People' is worth seeing

Dear White People takes place at a fictional Ivy-League university, and focuses mainly on four charaters: student activist Sam White (Tessa Thompson) who has a controversial radio show called “Dear White People”, Troy Fairbanks (Brandon P. Bell), whose father is the Dean of the University, Lionel Higgins (Tyler James Williams) who is an awkward uncomfortable budding writer, and Colandrea “Coco” Conners (Teyoneh Parris), perhaps the most ambitious of the bunch.
