Michou

The pop-folk band from Ontario gives Halifax some love.

“I got kicked out of music lessons when I was a kid because I wasn’t learning anything, I was just writing my own stuff,” says Mike Hargreaves, vocalist for Michou, a pop-folk band from Windsor, Ontario. He can laugh at that now: Having just opened for Dashboard Confessional (an artist Hargreaves says is one of the reasons he plays music), digitally released Michou’s second album, Cardona, and started another tour around the east coast, getting kicked out of music lessons didn’t affect him much. Michou’s heading out east because Hargreaves and his bandmates, Stefan Cvetkovic, Ryan Frith and Sasha Appler, love the music scene out here. Give Michou some genuine Halifax love on Friday or Saturday, the Seahorse or The Pavilion.
