Well hello there!

Welcome back to another Rebel Beat podcast! This week on the show, we bring you a preview of some of the more politically charged events of the incredible Suoni Per Il Popolo festival, running throughout th11206887_689456121159466_1646908265616346016_oe month of June in Montreal.

We had a studio packed full of awesome guests this week. Amy Darwish of the Middle-East solidarity collective Tadamon! came through to tell us about the Artists Against Apartheid compilation launch show happening on June 5, with a whole line-up of talented musicians supporting the Palestinian liberation struggle.

Then, we were joined by two members of the Saturn Returns collective – a new Montreal project dedicated to supporting feminist, queer-positive, anti-capitalist music! We spoke with Shaun of the band loosestrife, as well as Helen from Heathers. Both of those bands, along with Doilies, will be playing a Saturn Returns showcase as part of Suoni on June 7.

Plus we hear some other great music by bands playing the festival, such as The Kids, Proxy, The Ex, and Matana Roberts. And check out some of the videos from our guests this week below!
