September 21 – 24, 2011
2pm – 6pm daily
Join geriatric dandy Peanut Brittle as he returns to Dépanneur le Pick Up for his latest engagement – a low-power radio show broadcasting directly to your picnic table. During Pop Montreal Peanut will host WEZY from DLPU’s psychedelic ice-fishing hut, airing a selection of fine music, rambling monologues about the good old days, and plenty of innuendo. It’s like Quentin Crisp meets Finkleman’s 45s. Come by for your usual DLPU delights and get a side-serving of old time radio.
Peanut Brittle, the alter-ego of Toronto performance artist Lex Vaughn, has been charming the ladies and making the gents blush since the mid-Noughties. Early adopters of DLPU may recall him serving up a Tex-Mex brunch in 2009, haranguing customers and getting salsa all over his polyester pants. Don’t miss this latest incarnation of everyone’s favourite codger-about-town.
