Applications are now closed for the 2016 Spring Edition of the Puces POP Fair.
The second session in the Greville Tapes Music Club series will bring together East Coast songstress Julie Doiron (Sackville), and Montreal lo-fi pop-rockers Nancy Pants. They’re meeting for the first time in the Quarantine, a farmhouse studio in Port Greville, Nova Scotia, on January 31st, 2016. Under the care and tutelage of Quarantine head honchos Colleen Collins and Dave Trenaman (who together form duo Construction & Destruction), the two groups will work for four days to create a collaborative recording. Each artist brings two original compositions to the table, and over the course of four days will write, rewrite, and record the tracks, having the process documented by a New Brunswick based filmmaker.
The tour dates are:
- January 28th – Sackville, NB, at Thunder & Lightning Ltd.
- January 29th – Halifax, NS, at Gus’ Pub
- January 30th – Fredericton, NB, at the Capital Bar
- January 31st – Moncton, NB, at Plan B Lounge
- February 4th – Toronto, ON, at the Cave at Lee’s Palace
- February 5th – Toronto, ON, In-Store at Sonic Boom
- February 6th – Montreal, QC, at Bar Le Ritz

Through Monopolized Records (Saint John, NB), all original content generated will be available as 12” vinyl releases, digital, and film versions over the course of the year (and cassettes, of course!). Content will also be available through traditional online outlets (Youtube, iTunes, Bandcamp, Spotify) and record shops. With a concerted effort to promote each individual session, band and brand, the common thread of beautiful Port Greville and the spirit of collaboration will stitch the Greville Tapes Music Club together.
As more content and sessions unfold, new guest producers, videographers, and visual artists will be incorporated, expanding the concept and reach of the project. As each contributing artist dives in, we look forward to seeing new love bloom and unique Canadian content created.
