POP MTL Preview Podcast #1 - Sep. 29, 2010

Posted by Jer / September 27, 2010

Villagers The annual musical invasion that is Pop Montreal is less than two days away and, if you hadn't noticed from the last batch of posts on Midnight Poutine, we're pretty excited. It may not be as organized or as polished as other music festivals but, like the rest of this city, that's part of Pop's charm. It's a carefully curated event, one that promises big name shows, hole-in-the-wall venues, music industry networking, late night loft parties, pillow fights, sonic surprises and stuff so secret we can't even write about it cryptically in less than 140 characters on our twitter feed. In its 9 years of dragging music lovers from near and far to Montreal, Pop has become one of the premiere festivals of its kind for sampling new sounds or finding forgotten ones.

Since we know how stifling it can be to look at a program so jam-packed with gigs, art shows, films, symposiums, and flea markets, we've taken it upon ourselves to help you steer your way through the chaos. Once again this year we've produced a marathon series of preview podcasts to accompany your Pop journey. We'll post one show a day for each day of the fest, starting today and ending on Friday (or whenever we pass out). We'll also have on-going coverage of the festival here on the site and near-instantaneous impressions on our twitter page.

For the most comprehensive and up to date info on Pop happenings, be sure to check out the Pop MTL website or their new super techno hip iphone/ipod app. The wise and keen-eared gents over at Said the Gramophone also recently put up their guide to the fest, which is, as always, filled with plenty of insightful suggestions. Enjoy whatever you get out to go see. Just make sure you get out.

Affiliate Marketing can be a real challenge for the beninger and so any help you can give will be greatly appreciated by all. My own view point is that making money online using affiliate programs is one of the easiest ways to get started with a profitable website, however there are many pitfalls and much to learn about advertising in order to turn hopes into reality but the great things is anyone can do it
