Disquiet Junto & friends meet up in Montréal

Over on the Disquiet Junto Slack the idea of meeting up in this summer sprang into life. Then Montréal resident @studiodc came up with a venue, and now it’s happening.

On Sunday, June 23rd, Junto members are meeting up at an event space in Montréal. During the day we thought we’d show each other what we’re up to, discuss music making, play a bit for each other, and with each other. In the evening, for those that want to, we’ll play a line up of sets, open to the public. There might be some impromptu hastily-led improv as well.

So far, we number about a half dozen. Most are coming in a day or two before - so there will be some park walking, cafes, and food to get to know each other on Saturday. Who knows - maybe even work on that week’s Junto…

We’re excited to meet each other outside of cyberspace, connecting socially and musically.

If you’re interested in joining us, we’d love to have you! If you decide to come, please let us know so we can plan better - and keep you abreast of details as the firm up: DM me (@mzero): name & e-mail & dates you’ll be there (even if approx.).

Bump: We are just about two months out from this event. Things are shaping up nicely, we have a core group confirmed, and beginning to do some planning.

It’s is open to the whole llllllll.co community - and anyone who’d like to spend a day or two meeting face to face with other musicians. If you’d like to join us, please DM me.

That’s usually a pretty crazy week in Montreal (St-Jean Baptiste, etcetera) and we were planning to hide out in the Townships for a bit, but I’m going to do my level-headed best to be around. :pray:

For anyone still thinking of joining: I have an extra space in an AirBnB I rented for a number of us to share. PM me for more info.

Massive respect appreciation to everyone and especially Mark and Daniel for facilitating, managing, and cat-herding.

Next time I’ll bring a MIDI controller or something so I can actually jam instead of just letting Marbles barf out quantized voltages which, to be fair, is not the most sociable way of approaching a group show. :blush:

Alright Montreal, what are we doing next?
