TIFF, the Canadian Country Music Association Awards -- loads of fresh CBC shows: all the good stuff happens in September, and that includes what's going on at CBC Radio. Q returns with new episodes September 2, for instance, and there's already an opportunity to be part of a live audience.
September 26, host Jian Ghomeshi is taking the show to the Pop Montreal festival, where he'll be joined by Polaris Music Prize winners -- and Montrealers -- Patrick Watson. And, as announced today, another group of pop experimentalists, Braids, will join them on the show. The interviews and performances will be recorded live from the city's Theatre L'Olympia. (Get your tickets for $25, here.)
While you can find plenty on both Braids and Patrick Watson at CBC Music -- check out their album stream of Braids's latest record, Flourish//Perish, for instance or the 2012 live recording of Patrick Watson's Adventures in Your Own Backyard from the CBC's Glenn Gould Theatre -- Patrick Watson has had a long relationship with Q too, one that's given Canadians, and the Interwebs, a wealth of video highlights.
Check out a few of the band's most memorable visits to Studio Q in the videos below:
