~Don’t Be The Cloud/THE JON COHEN EXPERIMENTAL
yes, outta MONTREAL . . . have a listen !! – bet addiction will hit you, too.
while we were in Montreal last May 2010 – we came across this great little music venue called CASA del POPOLO – on St. Laurent – or St. Lawrence as we used to call it – back in the day – before the French language rights issue – cast it’s chilly spell. that was like the hood – like exactement – the Lower East Side – of Montreal.
for your two buck coin – or tooney – as Canadians call their 2 dollar coins . . . they only have bills starting at the $5 denomination . . .
(singles, or $1 coins are called ‘looneys’ . . . get it: looney and twoonies. Looney tunes – I swear to god.)
(ya gotta know what Looney tunes are, right ? you know Bugs Bunny. Elmer Fudge ? T.V. before reality shows ?)
you can choose a limited edition handmade artist zine – or even some artist produced buttons !!
yes, check these guys, out: distroboto
anyways – CASA del POPOLO, in keeping with its Montreal location – seemed to be more of a European bar/coffeehouse than the kind of more down-to-earthy coffee shop with cupcakes and muffins that our CAKE SHOP is – but just like our NYC Lower East Side – Cake Shop – their music venue was also in the deep dark basement . . . with its own bar downstairs, too.

this guy was just an amazing fireball of intensity – Montreal spawns a few of these every now and then – even back in the day – when my crew ruled the streets and cafes.
