Jr. Mintz - unknown

Once again Tim McCready turned his home into the city's coolest venue for a day, transforming living room, basement and backyard into performance spaces for a chill day-long party. A backyard stage under an arch of trees at the very far end of the lot made the show feel even more like it was taking place off in some friendly forest. The programming, thanks once again to an alliance with M for Montréal and an association with a large local corporate rock festival, mixed a few mostly-Montréal out-of-towners with local faces.

This project from Noah Mintz (known these days as a mastering engineer extraordinaire and formerly of hHead and Noah's Arkweld) very much had the feel of a bunch of friends heading out to the backyard after jamming out in the basement. Joined by Andrew DeVillers (of Mad Ones) on bass and Rob Balon on drums, this was both a first show and — as Mintz kept joking/threatening — the band's last. Not sure if that's a fact, but it seems undoubtable that this crew will still be making music in the future, even if they keep adjusting their pun-based band name on a regular basis while they're jamming somewhere.

* Does anyone know the title to this one? Please leave a comment!
