Be Prepared!



The last couple of weeks have been pretty hectic over at CL HQ on Boulevard St. Laurent in Montréal. The scope of our looming adventure was overshadowed only by the overwhelming nature of preparing for such a voyage. If you’ve ever spent a month living out of a van, travelling thousands of kilometers and counting on the kindness of strangers for couches and floors to sleep on, you’ll know what I mean. Tasks crawled out of the woodwork like bedbugs in a student apartment. Their existence was obvious, but their number impossible to calculate.

Still, one by one and day by day our list was slowly whittled down.
Boxes checked.
I’s dotted.
T’s crossed.

One of the most exciting things we accomplished before leaving town was screen printing a batch of new T-shirts with the help of the kind folks down at Ste. Emilie Skillshare. We had a blast burning screens, pulling ink, and waiting for things to dry with our new friends Tasha and Lia. The space is an incredible resource for independent artists and community groups in Montréal, it’s a real civic treasure!

So many red shirts. So much drying.

Also: PINS!

You’ll be able to see, touch, and even purchase the fruits of our labours at all of our upcoming shows across the Maritimes, Newfoundland, and Ontario.

Warning: They’re going fast.

See you on the road!

Best,
