KRISTA’S EURO TOUR! From clubs in Athens to a sweet shop on the island of Syros!

16 days on the road thus far and I’ve already played seven shows in France, Spain, Greece, worked in a sweet shop on the island of Syros, sat in on a jam session with a Greek band and eaten many delicious things! I’m getting ready for the journey from Ermoupoli to Athens as tonight I’m playing my last gig in Greece at a chouette place in the city center called Aperitif.

We begin back in Toulouse at the Persimmon House. Here is where it gets it’s name…

POST POP – EURO TOUR AHOY!

I had an amazing time at Pop Montreal last weekend. Got to check out some great bands – Dominique Young Unique, Moonface, Les Canailles – as well as attend the Pop Symposium. The Music Supervisor panel created by Jon Bartlett featured three very different but equally inspiring music supervisors who were on hand to talk about their work placing music for film/tv. I had the pleasure of talking to Michael Hill after the panel and he told me of his work with Musicians On Call. Basically music therapists are teamed up with musicians who go from room to room performing for patients in the hospitals – the healing power of music is indeed great and I’m hoping to pursue this work in the future!

Thanks to all of you who came out to see us perform at the Ukrainian Federation Hall. Here we are hanging backstage avant le spectacle…

Now I’m busy prepping as I fly to Toulouse via London tonight! Trying to see how I can possibly fit costumes, instruments, clothes and presents into one suitcase under 25kilo…The art of extreme tetris begins…You can check out the updated tour schedule on the shows page. I’ll be performing in Toulouse – Barcelona – Athens – Paris – Brussels – Pau – Bayonne – Engomer – Bordeaux. Hope to see some of you there! And for the time being you can enjoy this amazing remix of “Between Atoms” by Pierre Crube de Numero.

HAPPY 10th BIRTHDAY POP MONTREAL!

You know what is crazy? I just got off a micro tour and I don’t have a single photo to share. This is what happens when you are completely wrapped up in the shows and have no pizzarazzi to speak of. I promise the upcoming PopMontreal showcase this Saturday will be photographed, videographed – even cellographed! (?) And I will post the images and video right here on this blog. Saturday’s show will be stellar as I’ll be performing with Lederhosen Lucil veterans Shane Watt (bass, vox) and Spencer Warren (drums) + special surprise guests. There will be costumes, lights, cameras, and definitely ACTION! Oh, and music of course…

It’s strange to think that a decade ago my alter ego Lederhosen Lucil performed at the first ever PopMontreal festival at the now defunct “Le Swimming” club. I still sometimes wonder where the entire roll of brand new black & silver Lederhosen Lucil stickers went (someone stole em’ from the curb as we were loading into a cab after the show!). It has since grown to epic proportions inspired, no doubt, by Austin’s SXSW as Pop now boasts Artpop, Filmpop, Symposiumpop, free BBQs and so much more. You can read about some of the highlights here: Hour Community & visit the official website here: POP MONTREAL.

Saturday, September 24th – Ukrainian Federation Hall – Doors 19h30 / Krista Muir at 20h (sharp! if you come late you will miss our part of the show…) / 21h Les Canailles / 22h Marie-Jo Therio –  Tickets $20/24 or with Pop wristband

After the show many of us will be heading over to Cinema L’Amour to see and hear special guest Gary Lucas speak about his life and times with the legendary artist Don Van Vliet (Captain Beefheart) –  00h00 $12/15 or with Pop wristband
