Michael Alvarez of Flub & I have a conversation about how he coped with 2020, the soundtrack to his youth, his 1st shows, playing Montreal, being Sober, his last brew, how he was managed to stay Sober, where he has found support, his 1st Sober tour, taking the stage Sober, his advice for anyone who is struggling, how he has been filling the void & what the best part of the pandemic has been for him.
Throughout this interview, Michael was drinking Signature SELECT Water Seltzer & I was drinking Ras L'Bock's "Matinée - Extra Light". This non-alcoholic IPA poured out with a slightly milky yellowish veil, snapped ripe oranges on the nose, slammed a mild hoppy bite with a tangerine finish & was an excellent brew!!! I strongly suggest this non-alcoholic option to anyone that is looking for a Hoppy booze free alternative!
This is a Heavy Montreal presents Vox&Hops episode! Heavy Montreal is Montreal's premier metal promoter. They host one of North America's best Metal Festivals & present countless amazing events during the rest of the year. I am truly honored & extremely excited to have them involved in the podcast.
This week's Vox&Hops Underrated Gem is Monsters Around Us. I am super stoked to be able to shine some light on them by playing their track "VirusEternus" in the intro of this episode.
Make sure to check out Vox&Hops' Brewtal Awakenings Playlist which has been curated by the Metal Architect Jerry Monk himself on either Spotify or Apple Music. This playlist is packed with all the freshest, sickest & most extreme albums each week!!!
