POP MTL Preview Podcast #1 - Sep. 21, 2011
Let the Pop Montreal madness begin. We're a day away from the start of this city's most wonderfully curated and home-grown music festival, and we couldn't be more excited (as you can probably tell from the flurry of Pop posts). On top of the regular musical goodness Pop usually brings to town, this year marks the festival's 10th year anniversary so they are celebrating in style. Whether it's the giant free show featuring the newly annointed Polaris Prize winners, The Arcade Fire, or influential blasts from the past, like The Raincoats or the Velvellettes, there's a lot of talented folks floating around the city over the next 5 days.
As in years past, we've foolishly decided to offer up a podcast previewing each day of the festival, to help you in making your musical decisions throughout the week. It's a bit of a marathon, for us and anyone who dares to listen to all 5 shows. But hopefully they help bring a bit of sanity to the musical chaos that is Pop Montreal.
