Written by on

This week’s Apt613 Live is all about the music.  This weekend there are a lot of great folks visiting the capital to rock your socks off (and toques and mittens and never-going-to-return-to-storage winter coats). We chat with Chris Milligan, one third of the folk-rock band Sea Perry a group of “nice guys” who are taking the stage at Avant-Garde to sample some music from their upcoming album this Saturday.

This week on Apt613 Live we’ve got an interview with Julie Gauthier from Covet &Co.  Officially the boutique’s grand opening is in May, but in the meantime they’re introducing themselves and their love for paper-based salutations (remember the world pre-texting?) by offering Letterpress workshops each weekend in March.  We sat down and chatted about the boutique, the lost art of the handwritten letter and the benefit of rolling up your sleeves and learning to do some things for yourself. Music from Jon Hynes, John Jacob Magistery, The Tourist Company and... | Continue reading article

Hey kids! In case you haven’t checked your calendars this weekend will be ushered in by one of my favourite special days: Friday 13th!  I don’t normally sidestep ladders, avoid cracks in the sidewalk or throw salt over my shoulder to scare away the devil.  But there’s something delightful about indulging in these little rituals on a day punctuated by superstitious possibilities… This week on the show we’ve got Patrick Gauthier: Curator of the upcoming Undercurrents independent-theatre festival.  We talk a bit about what the 2015 program has to offer... | Continue reading article
