M for Montreal / M for Midnightpoutine

Posted by Valerie / November 18, 2008

For its third consecutive year, M for Montreal went for many local crème de la crème musicians to put together four eclectic showcases between November 20 and November 22. Merged into this Montreal music celebration will be a T for Toronto section, introducing some of Toronto’s finest emerging artists as well.
Here’s what you can find at M for Montreal:

November 20
Alternating between Cabaret Juste Pour Rire and the next door Studio.

10h15 pm: Pas Chic Chic (sophisticated French indie-pop)

10 pm: Karkwa (French indie-rockstars)
10:45 pm: We Are Wolves (highly danceable electro-rock)
11:30 pm: Pierre Lapointe (theatrical French singer)

It’s important to remember that several music industry executives from all over the world will be attending these shows, and they take crowd response to bands into consideration when deciding which artists they want to eventually deal with. This is why our duty as Montreal citizens and music-lovers is to go and encourage the acts we are proud of.

If all these shows seem too interesting to miss out, 3-day passes are available to purchase for the reasonable price of $40.
Stay tuned to Midnight Poutine for more on this very exciting edition of M for Montreal!

Are you going to be covering this Val?
If so, I'm SOOOOOO jealous. I wish I had the time to go.
