With just over one week to go before the unveiling of its entire programming, POP Montreal is thrilled to announce an entire day of FREE events, taking place on Saturday, September 16th, as part of Sessions 375, official programming of Montreal 375th anniversary. All the action will take place at both POP Montreal's daytime and nighttime headquarters, at l'ancienne École des beaux-arts, a.k.a. POP Quarters, (3450 St-Urbain) and the Rialto Complex (5723-5719 Ave. du Parc).
This free day of programming is the fourth and last event of the Sessions 375 series, unique experiences created to celebrate Montréal, which has already held three major events this summer. For this last Sessions 375 organized by POP Montreal, events will start in the afternoon, with a music BBQ. For the first time, the Record Fair will move out of the Mile-End and into the POP Quarters School Yard at the ancienne École des beaux-arts, where it will happen amidst live music, food trucks, a new lounge and family activities. Performances will include music by Orkestar Kriminal, Klô Pelgag, Aba & Preach, Bonjay, Lunice and Kid Koala’s Vinyl Vaudeville.
When the night falls, the action will move up to the Rialto Complex, where 5 venues will open its doors for a night of more FREE shows. From RZA: Live from the 36th Chamber of Shaolin (RSVP necessary, see show listing for details), to Aldous Harding, Lido Pimienta, Laura Sauvage and Think About Life, the public will be welcome to venture through the 4 floor complex and discover new art and sounds from 7pm to 3am!
