After the show at The Supermarket on April 15, Jay drove us all to Toronto Pearson Airport around 6 in the morning. We got on the plane at 7.30 and took off at 8am.
We arrived to Montreal at 10 in the morning and went straight to our lodging at La Casa Del Popolo, a mythological spot in Montreal underground scene, in which we had two nights for ourselves due to our participation at Malasartes Festival, “a festival for the mad people”, organized by Damián Nisenson, an argentine musician currently living in Montreal.
The “pensione” is a tremendous place, filled with sun.
The pensione is next to the bar and concert room of La Casa Del Popolo, over Saint Laurent Street, and in front of La Sala Rossa, another Montreal mythological place, on which we played that same night, at the Festival closing act, along with Damián Nisenson’s group, called NoZen, in which he featured the musician So Called as a guest.
The owner of La Casa Del Popolo and La Sala Rossa, as it seems, is a crazy italian, who organizes a festival of his own called Un Suoni Per il Popolo, on which artists such as Amiri Baraka or D’bi Young have participated. The posters from Un Suoni Per il Popolo are tremendous. As I understood, they are all made by an artist who lives near and works with serigraphy.
The pensione has been the place for my best sleep until now.
There was something in the light.
