Five Minutes With: Montréal Multi-Instrumentalist Eve Parker Finley

Eve Parker Finley is a noted Montréal multi-instrumentalist, comedian, and new media artist.

Her work has been featured on CBC, Exclaim!, Xtra, Recording Arts Canada, and other outlets. She is also a rising voice in the Canadian comedy landscape, host and creator of Ten Minute Topline with CBC Music, and Symposium Director at POP Montréal.

Rapid Fire Local Questions:

What is your favourite local restaurant?

At the moment, Pumpui or Vieux Velo

What is your favourite street in your city and why?

St Hubert Plaza baby! It’s pique Montréal culture to me: sex toy stores right beside hip bars right beside cheap prom dress stores, fancy dress stores, and the government-run weed shop. Sorry, can’t get more iconically Montreal than that hilarious combination.

What is your favourite park in your city and why?

Tough call but I think Parc Outremont is the prettiest (but Parc Jarry for fun gatherings)

What is your favourite music venue in your city?


What is your favourite music store in your city?

Phonopolis for records and Archambault for music stuff but like a decade ago before it became basically only a nonsensically a puzzle and home goods store.
