The Local With Hollerado's Menno Versteeg and Annie Murphy of Schitt's Creek

Last week in The Local, we heard from Lucky Bromhead -- the talented personal makeup artist for Catherine O'Hara and Annie Murphy from the hit comedy Schitt's Creek, so this week we though we'd hit up Annie and her husband, Menno Versteeg -- singer of the rock band Hollerado and owner of the indie label, Royal Mountain Records -- to hear what they had to say about their favourite things around TO.

Where do you guys live?

The Local With Promoter DL Jones

DL Jones is a true man about town. A renowned (and practically omnipresent) promoter, host and event planner in Montreal, he started out flyering for an afterhours spot in 2003 and worked his way up from there. Now, whether he's organizing one of the Naive Melody events, a creation of Arcade Fire's Win Butler and Régine Chassagne, Herve K and himself, or acting as the MTL ambassador for Diplo's Mad Decent parties, he's been a rock in the Montreal nightlife scene for well over a decade.

The Encyclopedia Hearsay was founded on four principles: misinformation, rumours, half-remembered conversations and outright lies. Anyone can contribute so long as articles are written with no research whatsoever. If you are citing The Land Before Time as a source or abusing footnotes like David Foster Wallace, you are on the right track.
