Midnight Poutine in CBC Radio 3's Searchlight Contest

Karkwa CBC Radio Montreal Music Arcade FireYou might or might not know about CBC Radio 3, but if you live in Canada and are interested in music, it's a good site to get to know -- you'll learn about the latest and greatest bands, hear about what shows you might want to go see... wait a minute, that sort of sounds like good ol' Midnight Poutine.

We here at MP headquarters (location: somewhere under a few feet of snow) were pleased to learn that we've been nominated for this year's CBC Radio 3 Searchlight contest. In past years, they've picked the Best Independent Record Store and the Best Live Venue in Canada. This year, they're looking for the Best Canadian Music Website. The catch? It's up to your vote to say which Canadian music website is indeed the best. Not that we're trying to twist your arm or anything -- we're hoping that you sort of like what we do and will want to vote for us (after all, you are reading the site right now!)

CBC Radio 3 Searchlight Midnight Poutine montreal musicIt goes without saying that we don't hold a candle to the epic nature of types like Narduwar, nor have we sold as many albums as other contenders Arcade Fire and Tegan and Sara. But we like to think that our scope goes a bit wider than just one type of music (or one band, for that matter). We're clearly into Montreal-centric music-making, and as it happens, Montreal is one of the main hubs of indie music in Canada. Our dear Said the Blank friends (Said the Whale and Said the Gramophone, to name a couple) are also in the running, and we're not going to tell you who to vote for. We'll just say you should vote. Period. If you're really keen, you can vote once daily!

Thanks to Sylvain Dumais for the photo of Karkwa's keyboard.

I've just finished one about letting my four kids go off to grow up Text Me, Love Mom Parenting the Flights from the Nest' and now have to do the job of finding a publisher. Tonight I carved the pumpkin, with their dad snoring in front of the tea missing them all.
