Words and Music – April 20th

This Sunday April 20th the Words & Music Show presents two poets and two bands in one outstanding show.

Up from her home deep in Argentina is Guadelupe Muro, performing and touring Canada with her new project Songs for Runaway Girls.

Songs For Runaway Girls is the original soundtrack composed for Guadelupe’s novel Air Carnation. Lyrics were written by Guadelupe and music is composed and performed by Ana Lopez and Julián Muro, two musicians from Argentina.

On the same evening catch two poets in performance: the wordcraft of Carole H. Leckner joins with a starting new voice in the Throw Poetry community, Halogen. Both these poets appeared in the Mile End Poets’ Festival earlier this month and made enough of an impression that they are back by special invitation.

Closing the show is the absorbing and beautiful work of Planet Beach, a musical collaboration that defies labels.  Living between improv and alternative, the project premiered in Montreal a few months ago for the first time. It features lyrics and vocals by Robin Dann, saxophone by Mike Bjella, guitars and synths by Simon Labbé and percussion by Philippe Melanson.

It all takes place in the performance space at
Casa del Popolo
4873 boul. St-Laurent, Montreal
