On the train from Toronto to Montreal and, what do you know, there’s Wi-Fi onboard. I just turned on the Mac and, to quote Tag Team, whoop there it is. Wonder will Irish Rail get the memo? Beats that mobile broadband yoke I was using in Ireland for a bit earlier in the month to see if it was worth the bother (I’m sure some techie folks will argue with me about this, but I didn’t think it was much cop).

Anyway, I’ve said goodbye to T.O. and moved onto Montreal. I reckon there were some people back there glad to see the back of me! I’m hooking with some good folks in MTL with a view to finding out if there are more banging francophone bands like Malajube I should know about (I keep hearing great things about Les Breastfeeders). There are gigs in the city in the next few days from Beirut (the new album “The Flying Club Cup” is immense), Bat For Lashes and Fujiya & Miyagi.

I hope some of the local bands are playing as well and not preserving their energies for Pop Montreal next weekend, which I will miss.

So more Canuck adventures next week. Have a smashing weekend – and if you’re Hard Working Class Hero-worshipping in Dublin this weekend, check out You’re Only Massive, Super Extra Bonus Party, Oh No Ono and Leanbh. Oh and the photo exhibition too.
