Everyone knows that winter in Montreal is the biggest and best time to do the craziest partying, partying and after-partying. Right when you were just dreaming of getting out of that winter blues and drinking January away, here come a couple of amazing shows that you will want to see with your own eyes! (Don’t save all the fun for the weekend!)

Slim Twig gets on stage Wednesday January 21st along with fellow Torontonians U.S. Girls and extra special local sweetheart guests Nancy Pants at Bar le Ritz PDB. Tickets are available here for 7$ in advance or 10$ at the door.

On Thursday January 22nd, POP and Passovah bring you the launch of James Irwin‘s long-awaited new album Unreal (which is now streaming via Exclaim!), with Alden Penner and Caro Diaro (who is Maica Armata of Maica Mia) at Bar le Ritz PDB. Get tickets here!

Have fun! Be safe!

On December 18th, POP Montreal is going to throw the party of the year, and there is so much to celebrate! It’s the 100th anniversary of the Cinema L’Amour theatre, the 10th anniversary of uRockaoke (live band Karaoke), the middle of Hannukah and a few days before Christmas. POP Montreal will be lighting the candles, singing “I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus” and celebrating it all on one special night in the beautiful old hall that was built for Yiddish theatre and that still screens old school porn. So come out of curiosity, come to sing your favourite songs, come to drink and dance and MEGAPARTY in full on next level style!

UROCK L’AMOUR, Party des fêtes
Thursday, December 18th, 2014

We were totally overwhelmed by the the quantity (over 500!) and quality of the applications and it made choosing our participants quite a difficult task. We tried to shake it up this time to bring some BRAND NEW vendors that we think are doing some exciting work. All vendors have been notified at this point, best of luck in the Spring if your application wasn’t chosen this time. We had to turn down a lot of fantastic work!! We’ll be sharing the complete list later this week :)
