Howdy, Apartment613 Live fans! Interested in buying a bookstore? Taking in a beer-themed lecture? Or simply hanging out at a local coffeeshop with one of Canada’s top singer-songwriters? Then you’ll definitely want to check out this week’s podcast.

We kick things off with a preview of today’s Creative Mornings lecture — despite the name, this one’s actually taking place at noon — featuring Steve Beauchesne and all the creative goings-on at Vankleek Hill microbrewery Beau’s. Later on, we send intrepid Apartment613 editor Jared Davidson over to the Collected Works bookstore to find out why the owners are selling their shop for a mere loonie. And we close the show with part one of a two-part interview with Montreal-based singer-songwriter Royal Wood, who’ll be bringing his sweet sounds to the National Arts Centre in early January.

There’s also tunes aplenty, including brand new stuff from Julie Doiron and Hollerado — whose hot air balloon-themed video you can watch here.


  • Julie Doiron, “Can’t Take It No More”
  • Yamantaka/Sonic Titan, “Queens”
  • Glorious MoonRockets, “Sharp Ends”
  • The Clientele, “Bookshop Casanova”
  • Royal Wood, “The Thick of It”
