In the cold they sit and in the cold they wait. Montreal's homeless never have it easy as the city streets they live on are notorious for having brutal winters, with temperatures well below zero. For that reason, year after year, Montreal's music community comes together to help keep warm. Blankfest Quebec is proud to announce its annual return for its 4th year in support of one of Canada's oldest and largest homeless shelters, the Old Brewery Mission.
Vancouver’s Kill Matilda gets personal in this audio-visual slideshow presentation extravaganza. Dusty (vocals, guitar) and Mykel (bass) talk homelessness, playing Blankfest Quebec 3, their move out East, relationships and much more. So what in the heck are you waiting for? Press PLAY (and tell everyone you know to do so too), already!
The Rock and Roll Report is excited to be a small part of the upcoming Blankfest Quebec charity show here in Montreal on February 21st, 2009. Last week’s Rock and Roll Report Radio was a Blankfest special edition and I want you to read the press release and try and help us if you can….
ADMISSION IS A BLANKET – BLANKFEST QUEBEC HELPS HOMELESS IN MONTREAL GET WARM – BLANKETS DONATED TO OLD MISSION BREWERY
