Montreal’s Pouzza Fest takes place later this week from May 19-21, and we’re happy that we’ve had the chance to count down to this festival with you. We have been chatting with a number of the Canadian lineup to get everyone ready for the big event, and we are having a blast doing so. Today, we are are focused on Montreal’s own, BOIDS.
First off, care to introduce yourself to the Canadian Beats readers?
I’m Andy from Boids.
Pouzza Fest is in May, which is really the beginning of the summer festival season, how to prepare for the festival season?
Festival season in Montreal? Buy a six pack and set your car on fire.
Have you taken part in Pouzza Fest before? If so, what is your favourite memory?
This will be Pouzza numbero quatre. One year we had hundreds of contraband bottle rockets. There is now a ban on all fireworks at the Stomp Records office.
There’s quite a big line-up at Pouzza Fest, who are you most excited to check out at the festival?
There’s way too many bands to say, but I wanna check out Great Apes and it’l be cool to see The Flatliners again, also the Real McKenzies.
Are you performing at any other festivals this summer that you’d like to tell us about?
Describe your live show in 5 words, and GO!
Freaky deakies need love too.
If you were asked to give an up and coming artist some advice, what would that advice be?
Practice, don’t be boring, practice not being boring.
What’s up next for you?
We are constantly writing new songs, playing a bunch of shows, heading to Europe in August and down to the Fest in Gainesville in October. Plus whatever else happens whenever it happens. Cheers!
