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!
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".
Camille McOuat, managed to snap me looking all crazy eyed over the independent creative goodness!
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!

I am going to see Forest City Lovers from Toronto. They are a cute band who eat cute cupcakes.
This photo was found on the Forest City Lover's blog.
All in a days work! Happy popping my friends!
Puces Pop Craft Fair is on Saturday and Sunday from 11 - 6 pm in the church basement on St Urbain and St. Viateur.
The Silly Kissers show at Phonoplis is on Parc between Fairmount and St Viateur. Show start at 2 and goes till about 4.
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!
