Q Comes to Montreal

Posted by Sarah / June 24, 2008

ghomeshi-jianLike most of us here at Midnight Poutine, I have a day job. I spend about 40 hours a week sitting in an office, answering phones. It's a pretty boring job to tell you the truth, but the thing that really makes my job bearable is the fact that I'm in a position where I can listen to CBC Radio One all day. The highlight of my workday is Jian Ghomeshi's show, Q. Well, this coming Thursday, Q is coming to Montreal covering a variety of events, and while they're at it they'll also be recording a show with a live audience.

Q is my personal "daily dose of arts, culture and entertainment" as the show's tag line clearly states it. Along with Craig Norris, Amanda Putz, Sook Yin Lee and George Stroumboulopoulos, Jian is one of my favorite CBC hosts. In my dream-heaven projected picture, I'm sitting on a cloud, hanging out with all these guys.

Along with a variety of generally arts oriented guests, Ghomeshi often has some pretty awesome musical guests on his show. In the past few weeks alone, he has welcomed great artists (whose shows we also happened to cover here at Midnight Poutine) like Hey Rosetta!, Los Campesinos!, Martha Wainwright and so on. They often have some pretty pertinent things to say and I really love Jian's interviewing style and the way it leads into interesting insights on the guests' art and themselves as individuals.

Thursday, June 26th, the Q team will be setting up in The Société des Arts Technologiques at 1195 Saint-Laurent boulevard and welcoming fans like me into the "studio" for the recording of the show. The free tickets are already sold out, with hundreds still on the waiting list to attend, I was lucky enough to get a couple of them and will be reporting the outcome to you later on this week.
