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
Cinéma L’amour (4015 St-Laurent)

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 :)

THANK YOU FOR COMING OUT!

WE DID IT!! We time traveled to 2003 and saw The Unicorns play live, witnessed the triumph of POP over Jock, danced all night as commanded by the queen of calypso, survived a robbery and came out stronger, fell in love with Ronnie Spector, heard Richard Reed Parry‘s heartbeat, dined with Steve Albini, got serenaded at Twin Shadow, and watched true legends in the making during Ought. There was balcony stage diving at Ty Segall, lap dances given by Turquoise Jeep, a bunch of late night parties, a lot of making out, ridiculous running around, a few too many McAuslans, and you, with us, throughout it all. Who ever said that #13 was unlucky?
See you September 16th to the 20th, 2015. Until then, rest up, stay hydrated and keep believing in unicorns.
