Join us and the whole Montreal indie world at Passovah Summer Fest!

Posted by Greg / July 22, 2013

20130722-NoahMoon.jpgOn August 9th, 10th & 11th, Passovah Productions will hold its second annual Summer Music Festival, with approximately a gazillion artists playing Il Motore and The Plant. It's without a doubt the best place to sample Montreal's newest and best indie acts, while catching up with a few mainstays, like Miracle Fortress and Jeremy Gara of Arcade Fire. The best part is that it's all pay-what-you-can and proceeds will go to the Immigrant Workers Center. We at Midnight Poutine are thrilled to be collaborating on the event with Noah Bick & the Passovah crew and will be offering lots of coverage and special stuff over the coming weeks. Take a look at the schedule below and find more info here.

Come to the Midnight Poutine 300th Podcast Celebration BBQ this Saturday

Posted by Greg / June 12, 2013

20130612-PoutineBday.jpgWe're releasing our 300th Weekend Playlist Podcast this week and thought that was a good enough reason for a party.

Join our writers and podcast co-hosts for a celebratory BBQ in the park. The whole thing will be a casual community affair: we'll plant ourselves near the southeast corner Jeanne-Mance park (near Duluth and Esplanade) at around 3pm and stay there into the mid/late evening. Come join at any point and enjoy some food and drink in the sun.

There will be sausages, tortilla chips, salsa, and fruit provided by Chez Latina, buns by Boulangerie Guillaume, and waffles (including one stuffed with POUTINE) by Engaufrez-vous. Get more event details here and here.

Read a profile of our podcast series in the Montreal Gazette here and check out the BBQ event page here.

We've been so happy covering the Montreal music scene since 2006 and hope to keep it going for many, many years into the future.

And yes, you read correctly. Poutine-stuffed waffles.

Exclusive Premiere: Listen to Marble Lion's Clothing EP

Posted by Greg / May 15, 2013

20130515-MarbleLion.jpgOne late night about a year ago, I got an e-mail from a band I hadn't heard of asking me to check out one of their songs. The band was Marble Lion and the song was "Foliage" -- a dark and heavy track with an uplifting melody that shined through the smoke, as if they had written an anthem just for my 3am solitude.

Like what we do? Vote us "best website" and "best podcast" in The Cult's Best of MTL!

Posted by Greg / May 6, 2013

20130506-CultMTL.jpgOne of the many tough things to swallow about The Mirror's demise last year was the disappearance of their annual Best of Montreal Poll. It always fell somewhere between a high school popularity contest and genuine roundup of our city's best offerings, but either way, it was something Montrealers enjoyed, even rallied around, and certainly debated over once it dropped in newsstands. Anyone who has lived here more than a year has fond memories of picking up a copy and weeding through the list to see if their friend's band made it, if any burger joints finally beat McDonald's, and/or if anyone had found out about their favourite place to have sex in public.
