An interview with Charles Spearin: TONIGHT at Il Motore

Posted by Sarah / March 13, 2009

charles_spearin.jpgEarlier tonight, I had the immense pleasure of interviewing one of my personal musical heroes, Mr. Charles Spearin. This gentleman is known for his work with Broken Social Scene and also, one of my favorite bands of all time, Do Make Say Think. Last month Spearin released a brand new solo album called The Happiness Project where he interviewed some of his neighbours on the general subject of happiness and put the sound of their voices to music.

It’s an absolutely fantastic album that is superbly interesting. Their launch mini-tour included two dates in Toronto, one in New York City, and TONIGHT they are playing at Il Motore in Montreal (on Jean-Talon). As if we weren’t lucky enough to be one of the lucky cities to have this act on one of our stages, tonight’s show will also be featuring Andrew Whiteman and Julian Brown of Apostle of Hustle. There aren’t many dates to this tour, I know, but Spearin is a busy man. If you can't make it to one of the shows, do yourself a favor and pick up the record.

Listen to the interview after the jump to hear the lovely conversation I had about the musical influences, the neighbourhood, and a few mustache upkeeping tips of the brilliant musician.

Please forgive the background noise and the nervous laughter. There was nothing I could do about that.

Playing tonight at Il Motore (179 rue Jean-Talon Ouest - corner of Waverly).
Word on the street is the music starts at 10PM. Don’t miss it!

Booturtle: Don't worry, I had the same duh moment when I first staertd using them, too. It even starts with the same five letters you'd think that'd give us a clue.
