“We were having too much fun, basically.” In-studio interview with hotshotcasino, August 4th.

The University of Ottawa deserves a little more credit.

No, I’m not talking about the administration, or campus politics, or academics. I’m talking about some of the best talent in the city — and trust me, there’s a lot of it in this city — because apparently, this campus has become an indie rock goldmine, a pop-rocker’s paradise. Don’t believe me? Think back to the now-disbanded For The Mathematics. Check out the recently-transplanted-to-Toronto trio The Balconies. And you sure as hell had better give hotshotcasino a listen.

One half of the hometown rock quartet, Pascal Huot and Julien Dussault, dropped by the CHUO studios on August 4th to chat about their new single (available through their website), their upcoming fall tour (their first!) and YouTube videos made in hot tubs.

Be sure to give “This City” a spin — and we’ll definitely be keeping you posted on what these guys are up to.
