About Some Party

Some Party is a newsletter discussing Canadian music. It's written and curated independently by Adam White, who you may know from 20-odd years as a Punknews.org contributor or as a member of the Polaris Music Prize jury. The newsletter's written and delivered every Sunday evening (or as close to that as I can get). If you're so inclined, in 2020 I sat down for a fairly in-depth interview on what motivates the project with the folks at Pentagon Black.

This project couldn't have been launched without the support of these folks.

Back in 2011 and 2012 a nascent version of this project emerged as a short-lived podcast. It may be that again someday. You are actively encouraged to ignore it.

You can find me on Twitter, Instagram, and through email at [email protected].

Some Party's named after a Constantines song from their first album. Steven said it was ok.

Some Party is based in Niagara Falls, Ontario within the lands addressed in Treaty 381.


Some Party's been published more-or-less weekly since May of 2017. You can explore yearly archives for:
