…So the fifth annual Polaris Music Prize is a wrap, and a what a celebration of Canadian music it was, bringing together rock ‘n’ roll, pop hip hop, electronic, stoner fuzz, and singer-songwriters all onto one stage for another historic broadcast on CBC Radio 3 and MuchMusic. Congratulations to winning band Karkwa from Montreal, and to all nine other nominees. My favourite performance was Tegan and Sara, my favourite moment was Tegan’s speech after their songs. Thanks for all the warm words, tweets, and emails. It was a blast and an honour to be a part of what Steve Jordan created five years ago. It just keeps getting bigger and better! Sleepy time now! Oh, and watch the MuchMusic re-airing of the show on Saturday September 25 at 9pm!
