Hello Canadian dudes, 

 

I know we've had our laffs about how you guys pay your bills in Maple Syrup and half hockey pucks, but I enjoy your country. So much so, I've leapt at the opportunity to come to Montreal for the upcoming M for Montreal festival. I will be up there from Nov 17-21, and if any of y'all want to come up (or down, I'm not aware of Canadian geography) it'd be cool/weird to interact with you in a non-Internet context. So, if y'all are interested, let's talk. Just don't tell Banger. It's probably a short drive from Ohio (again, not aware of Canadian geography). 

 

-Love, Andross.

Oh shit,  Andross does la belle province!

 

Toronto is 5 hours away... but a weekend in Montreal is always good times, I might be up for this.

They're going to announce the lineup tomorrow, but I know Priestess, PS I Love You, Dears and a couple bands are on for sure.

Dude, if you're scared to meet me, just say so. Just kidding, whatevz, dude.  

 

Some questions about Montreal/Canada:

 

1. Can I pay for stuff in American dollars? Or do I need to convert to Canadian/Hockey equipment?

2. Is Montreal as awesome as everyone says it is (specifically the strip clubs?)?

3. Just how cold is it going to be?

4. Can I catch an Expos game?

5. Anything I need to do to get the Montreal experience?

i might try and meet up with the andross too. i don't think my gf will let me go to the land of the strip clubs solo though so she'd probably be going with me.

No. I had to work, and tickets were going for like $100 on Craigslist. The Schoenrocks and I live like five minutes from downtown and it was fucking bonkers afterwards, even out where we live. 

 

Daba- You should definitely come up. It'll be crazy.

1. Cheaper to convert to Canadian. Try getting a used Jofa.
2. Yes (specifically yes).
3. Sweater. Bring a light jacket.
4. No. The latest they ever played was October 19... in 1981.
5. Schwartz's.

/\ Everytime I go the lineup for Schwartz's is too long to wait out.

Sorry if I seem like Opie, but can I convert to Canadian in Canada, or do I need to do it at O'Hare, or something? 

 

Also, Al, if Daba comes up, you should definitely come. It always sounds like the nights you dudes party together end in some epic shit.

Change your money before you come up.

 

Ive only partied with daba once. But I helped him land his future wife... so I guess it was pretty epic.

whoa, thats where Daba met his lady? I needs to party with Al before I die. Or before I'm too old to be found desirable. Which is pretty soon.

I'm at a conference in San Diego that week... but that is going to be pretty damn r.0, Montreal is the best...

 

Also, Al you ever tried the reuben at Corned Beef House on Adelaide? Shit made me think the lineup at Schwartz's isn't necessarily worth it...
