Motorcycle-obsessed, red sofa sitting, hockey fanatic, and former MuchMusic VJ, George Stroumboulopoulos and Apple Music have launched a brand new concert series, House Of Strombo. The intimate show is recorded directly from George’s downtown Toronto home, a 10-episode venture alongside some of the coolest and most diverse bands and musicians around. A spinoff of Stroumboulopoulos’s Sunday-night radio broadcast The Strombo Show, the House of Strombo kicked off last week with a living-room set from A Tribe Called Red.
Viewers will instantly notice the thoughtful commentary provided in Strombo’s show opener, which harkens back to his hosting duties with MuchMusic and The Hour. The 30 minute merges both a live concert recording with an interview, an all inclusive in-depth peek into musician’s lives and performances in a grungy black & white demeanour. It’s safe to say that George is back curating the kind of content longtime listeners and viewers want most. Watch Friday’s episode below.
