Since you have already, no doubt, planned the optimal trick-or-treating route for Halloween (based on a formula that predicts a path with the largest concentration of residences with a high candy-to-healthystupidapples ratio), why don’t I just skip ahead to telling you where the best Halloween parties in Montreal are this year…
This weekend’s Black & Blue party will celebrate 20 years of incredible electronic music. Headlining the “House” room is the divine, award-winning, Paris-based DJ Paulette. We caught up with DJ Paulette to chat about house music, Montreal and the projects she is working on.
We’ve talked about the music and the, uh, not-music of Pop Montreal. 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. In the years I’ve been covering music in Montreal, “Dad” Seligman has been a constant presence, quick with a quip but, more importantly, a person whose passion for music has been imbued into the festival that he helped start.

The second annual Montreal Burlesque Festival promises to be bigger and better, with more nipple pasties and sexy stripteases than one could ever dream.
Our fiery photo this week captures a scene from local circus company, Tohu. “Inside and out, La TOHU (short for “tohu-bohu”, a French expression to describe urban hustle and bustle) is host to a year-round line-up of fun and excitement that spans a wide array of circus art forms, cultural celebrations and eco-responsible fairs. Home to state-of-the-art, purpose-built circus facilities as well as those of the National Circus School, the centre is a hub of cultural and economic life for the city and the Saint-Michel neighbourhood, with a mission to promote environmental design and stewardship. So come and run away to the circus in Montreal!” Thanks to Pierre Versailles for his photo! He’s our first contributor to have two photos featured! —————————————————————————————————————— Submit your Montréal pictures to our MONTRÉAL BUZZ FLICKR GROUP.

Given how incredibly hard Osheaga rocked, I’d understand if you thought that music in Montreal might take a break during August. But you’d be wrong, because Montreal doesn’t stop when it comes to music. Here, then, are some shows that you shouldn’t miss…
Emilie Simon, the French songstress that is taking the american indie music scene by storm is back in town. Before her Jazz Fest show on Saturday, June 26 as part of the fest’s late night series (show starts at 11:59 PM), I spoke to Emilie Simon, who has a musical background as eclectic and intriguing as her live show …
There are some events in Montreal, like for example the F-1, that locals often avoid. But when it comes to this week-end’s “Main Madness”, when all of St-Laurent is closed off to traffic, even the most cynical of Montrealers can usually find something to do… In my opinion this is because Main Madness, also known as the Street Sale, can be an entirely different experience depending on where you are on St-Laurent. If you want champagne and snootily gorgeous waitresses, head to the area just above Sherbrooke for the terrasses that extend out from spots like Buona Notte and the nearby oyster bars set up on the street. If you want DJs and a slight wilder scene, head to the area outside bars like Korova and spots like Laika .
