All the City's A Stage

All the city's a stage, and all the boys and girls are merely POP-ing.

If you already know what POP Montreal is, you get a POPsicle. In case you don't, here is my explanation: For five days music venues all over the city come alive, showcasing wicked local acts (like Charlotte), small but mighty independent bands, big showstoppers, and a whole slew of fun events revolving around fashion, film, crafty joys and alas, parties. I'm especially excited for tomorrow which seems to be a combination of all of these things!

Saturday morning

After waking up and washing crusty make up off my face from the night before, I'm going to head on over to Puces Pop , Montreals largest "do it yourself festival".
Picture 9Camille McOuat, managed to snap me looking all crazy eyed over the independent creative goodness!

Saturday afternoon

After Puces Pop (which is a free event) I am heading over to Phonopolis Record Store to see Silly Kissers for a FREE show in the basement. FREE FREE FREE GOD I LIVE THIS CITY FREE! Since I live across the street I am having friends over after for beer and australian meat pies after!

Forest City Lovers are playing at Divan Orange. I don't know what time they are playing because the POP Montreal website is very confusing!
