the Muscadettes

One of the better up-and-coming acts at the 2014 Pop Montreal festival were duo The Muscadettes. Comprised of twin sisters Chantal and Kathleen Ambridge (plus a drummer live), they make super-catchy, riffy rock with shouty choruses and hooks a'plenty. The band currently have a five-song EP out and will release their debut album next year. NYC can catch them next week when they play CMJ with four shows scheduled at present:

October 24 @ Lit Lounge (8:15 PM) | PaperCup showcase
October 24 @ Arlenes Grocery (2:45 AM [yikes]) | M for Montreal
October 25 @ The Shop (1 PM) | PaperCup CMJ day showcase
October 25 @ Fat Baby (12:30 AM)

Full lineups for their shows, show flyers and the EP stream, below...
