Alex Soria Memorial Concert being held in Montreal on March 11th, 2005

Alex_soria_1 Last December I wrote of the tragic death of Alex Soria, frontman and the mastermind behind one of the greatest rock and roll bands that Montreal, indeed Canada has ever produced, the Nils. Well a memorial concert will be held this March 11th in Montreal at the Main Hall. The show will feature John Kastner, Chris Spedding, Ian Blurton, Mack Mackenzie, Idees Noires, Chris Page, Jerk Appeal, members of the Nils, Chino and Los Patos, and other special guests. Admission is $10.00 with the proceeds going to Mimi’s Alex Soria Fountains Award for most promising local songwriter and to the Portage Program for drug dependencies. It all kicks off at 8:30 PM. If you are not familiar with the work of Alex Soria then you should read Remembering Alex Soria by Chris Barry. (photo from the Montreal Mirror).
