bouncin' le gros

sorry i won't be able to join the arty party in NL this week. among other good reasons for having to stay stateside, i've got jury duty tomorrow--in lowell of all places.



still, i was fortunate enough to make it up to MTL this past weekend to catch a special beat-research- / boston-bounce-bolstered incarnation of bounce le gros, the mongrel monthly thrown by upnorth beatsmith ghislain poirier--who, as truck would have it, happens to be one of curator/rupture's guests at the fest in amsty.



zoobizarre was truly bizarre: a dungeonous little club on the second floor of a middle-class french-side-of-town shopping district that managed to attract a relatively diverse, relatively rockin' crowd--and on the coldest night in recent memory--to bounce along to the baaaaassss that ghislain seems to prize above all else, to his credit. flack and c were down with that strategy too, of course.



thanks for the vibes, all. (big up to etienne and erin.)
