This weekend in Montreal will be bustling with activity. The city’s favorite indie music festival, Pop Montreal, will be rocking locals and visitors with the hippest of chord progressions.

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.

MONTREAL HAS THE BLUES

As you may well have noticed, most of Montreal’s festivals take place in and around the Quartier Des Spectacles. Therefore, when a fest like Festiblues (August 11th-15th) sets up shop outside of the downtown core, the story about it is almost as much about the area it’s being held as it is about what its got going on. The FestiBlues International de Montreal is entering its 13th year, a feat that’s entirely impressive on its own in this fest-crazy city.
