The Karnival party a couple weeks ago was a darned fun part of Montreal’s Nuit Blanche. Bonjay killed it from early on (watch out for these two, as their indie-cum-soul-cum-dancehall takes parties by storm), and then Mr. Ghislain Poirier and friends took the opportunity to make a video for “Arena”–a big big tune that’s on the new Crookers record, Tons of Friends, released about a week ago. If you missed the stylings of Face T in Blazin’, here’s your opportunity to get caught up. The fellow is wicked on this track, and he looks mighty sharp in that blazer. Video directed by Mtl’s Colin Beaudry, btw.
Oh, and if you happen to be in Austin next week, you too can check out Poirier and Bonjay at the Pop Montreal showcase on March 20. Gotta big up the Canucks.
