THIS WEEKEND IN MONTREAL (NOVEMBER 12 to 14)

Oh Montreal, why can’t you just give me a weekend off? I keep thinking that one of these weekends there will be NOTHING to do, and I’ll be able to get caught up on sleep and pay my bills and floss my teeth and do stuff that people with spare time do. But alas, my dear Montreal, you keep presenting me with so many wonderful temptations. Here are ten fun things to keep you in trouble this weekend.

NOVEMBER CONCERTS ROUNDUP

November (or, Movember as it’s increasingly become known) is an important month for Montreal music lovers, because once we hit December, everything starts coming up all Nutcrackers and Handel’s Messiahs. From legendary DJs to the Biebs, there’s something for almost every concertgoer this November…

A CHAT WITH POP MONTREAL’S DAN SELIGMAN

With the fest now in full swing, it seemed like the perfect time to have a chat with Dan Seligman, the festival’s Creative Director.

FRIDAY NOCTURNES: THE MARVELOUS MARRIAGE OF MUSIC AND MUSEUM

Music and art go together like… well… John and Yoko. Where the cadence of a chord progression ends, the visual stimulus of a painting begins. On the first Friday of each month the Montreal Contemporary Art Museum hosts an event called Friday Nocturnes. They invite a trendy band or musician to perform, while giving visitors the opportunity to engage with contemporary art.

POP MONTREAL – KARKWA

As early as last week, many people outside of Quebec had not heard of Karkwa. But when the Montreal group, who’ve been together for over a decade, won the prestigious Polaris Music Prize in Toronto, that changed almost overnight. Before their Pop Montreal show on September 30th at Metropolis, the Montreal Buzz caught up with guitarist and vocalist Louis-Jean Cormier…
