To celebrate the launch of Chosen Family, Tranna Wintour and Thomas Leblanc will curate a not-to-be missed party on Saturday August 19th at the Phi Centre, with some of the duo’s favorite Montreal musicians: three-piece dark wave act Ghost Love, post-punk sensation Rose Bush, and bedroom electronic chanteuse AWWFUL. The event, happening on the eve of Montréal’s Fierté parade, promises to be an unforgettable celebration of LGBTQ+ chosen families, in the arts and beyond.
Ghost Love is behind Chosen Family’s musical signature. The band’s first EP will launch on August 18th, just in time for their unique performance at the Phi Centre. The video for single One Lands has been directed by Chosen Family co-host Thomas Leblanc.
Rose Bush is a Montreal-based all-female quartet that’s been playing non-stop since the beginning of 2017. Their debut song, Bellow, is a testament to the band’s exciting blend of punk and lo-fi pop.
A pop-obsessed DJ and promising producer/chanteuse, AWWFUL is a fixture on Montreal’s queer club circuit. Their songs BB and Malibu are a refreshing DIY take on new wave.
