Canadian Eminem fans rejoice, your idol will be coming to Montreal on July 31st this year, to headline the Osheaga Music and Arts Festival.
Joining Em on the lineup will be acts such as Death Cab For Cutie, Elvis Costello, The Flaming Lips, The Tragically Hip, Bright Eyes and others.
It’s been over a decade since Em last went to Canada and I’m pretty sure the last time he tried entering they were protesting the very sight of him, courtesy of The Marshall Mathers LP. What times ey?
What’s bizarre is, you would think that kind of extreme political madness would of extended back no further than the 70s or something but, just ten years ago? 2001?… that’s pretty bizarre indeed. Think of that, just ten years ago they were treating Eminem like a CRIMINAL! – treating a lyricist like a rapist. Strange, strange people. Politicians… leave art, the fuck, alone. Please, for all our sakes.
Anyway, July 31st is that date once again, just in case you needed reminding or would rather it rewritten to save yourself the enormous energy of going back and rereading what I wrote. Just imagine that effort. Actually, don’t, you may strain something.
