Zany, unhinged, groundbreaking and genre bending… these all describe CJLO 1690 AM, the Fantasia Film Festival and I Am a Knife with Legs. Blend these three together, and it’s gonna be a party you won’t soon forget. 

CJLO is proud to present the world premiere of I Am a Knife with Legs, part of the brand new “Fantasia Underground” programming section at the 2014 Fantasia Film Festival! Spotlighting “outrageous indie outsider visions created in the counter-cultural spirit”, this section is a perfect fit for CJLO, Montreal’s underground radio station. I Am a Knife with Legs pushes the boundaries with its absurdist humour, musical numbers, offbeat animation, and a microbudget of $12,000! The CJLO-sponsored screening happens Friday, July 25th at 7pm in the DB Clarke Theatre!

After the film, come to the downstairs bar at Kafein (1429 Bishop) to celebrate 10 years of partnership between the Fantasia Film Festival and CJLO 1690AM, with drinks, snack and CJLO DJs doing what they do best! The party starts at 8:30pm, bring your friends!

Hey, guess what I’ll be doing this Saturday? 

If you guessed DJing ALL THE HAIR METAL YOU CAN HANDLE all night at the Terrasse St-Ambroise (5080 Rue Saint-Ambroise), then you win an awesome screening of DJ XL5’s Spandex Zapping Party, which starts at 9:30pm, Saturday, July 12th! McAuslan and CJLO 1690AM are super proud to present this latest, hairiest DJ XL5 event, which collects film and video clips from the bitchin’est era ever, and you better be there!

What’s not to love? Delicious booze and food under the starry sky, yours truly spinning the sleaziest metal all night long, and an amazing collection of the glammiest, hammiest 80s era visual delights… Once again, the film starts at 9:30, but come early to hear me spin and buy me beers!

Here’s Vidar from Kvelertak reminding you, in Norwegian, to tune in to the BVST Meets Kvelertak special on CJLO 1690AM tonight! Don’t miss my full interview with him, as well as a bunch of amazing Scandinavian music, and of course, a whole bunch of Kvelertak. Tune in, 7pm ET tonight, only on CJLO 1690AM in Montréal, www.cjlo.com around the world, and keep your eyes peeled for the full transcript of the interview in the CJLO magazine in the next couple of days!

It’s no secret that BVST has been preaching the gospel of Norwegian heavy metal geniuses Kvelertak since the release of their debut album. Now, in the wake of their first-ever Canadian tour dates, Angelica from BVST was lucky enough to sit down with Kvelertak guitarist Vidar Landa for a wide ranging chat about Norway, Guns N’ Roses, trolls, and the band’s future plans, set against the roar of other bands soundchecking. Be sure to tune in this Wednesday at 7pm ET only on CJLO 1690AM in Montréal / www.cjlo.com, especially if you like the gritty audio verité styling of poorly recorded in-person interviews! We’ll be playing a lot of Kvelertak and other Scandinavian bands you should know about, as well as nerding out about one of metal’s most up-and-coming bands.

Here’s Andrew & me during the second leg of CJLO’s 24hr radio marathon during BVSTNT, manning the phones and making sweet, sweet radio. We were there with a big gang of CJLOixcans until 9am this morning, and if you missed the last four hours, you missed easily some of Montréal’s best/worst radio ever.
You can still donate to CJLO, and come out to our upcoming events. All the info you need is right here.
