Passovah Productions turned four this winter. Noah Bick launched the company with Lukas Glickman (who’s since stepped out of the picture) as a booster for their friends’ bands. They favoured quasi-legal venues like Friendship Cove, where there was no rental fee and no carding — Bick was 17 at the time. He was already an employee at Pop Montreal when Passovah launched, and about a year later, he began working for a company that you’d think would be his primary rival: Blue Skies Turn Black.
