THINGS TO DO IN MONTREAL (MARCH 31-APRIL 3)

April starts off with a day known for practical jokes and outright lies – sort of like “spring” in Montreal. But here at The Buzz, we’d never stoop to fool you, because balmy temperatures or not this weekend, the heat is on: blond-bombshell rock legends Rod Stewart and Stevie Nicks – in one show, believe it!; Bollywood goes live on stage; smoked meat sings from the heart; women be shoppin’; and, as always, this town rocks out on a music-packed weekend…

LESBIAN MONTREAL: APRIL

Spring is in the air, and the city’s April warming trend indicates zero percent chance of boredom with a high of dancing in a t-shirt weather! So dust off those backpacks and get excited about the parties, local dances and fun for gay girls to come…

THIS WEEKEND IN MONTREAL (MARCH 24-27)

The final weekend of March’s madness! Temperatures may have fluctuated wildly this month, but spring is definitely in the air now, even if our fingers still can’t quite feel it… Bring a pair of gloves out just in case, but arty happenings indoors and out will keep the blood flowing, whether ballet’s your bag, film’s your forum, rock n’ roll’s your rock or events of strange and sublime proportions are your, er, thing…

A BEARY FUN WEEKEND: SUGARBEAR

With spring in the air, bears are being roused from their deep hibernation and are in search of something sticky and sweet. No, not honey. These bears are coming to Montreal for something sexier to tickle their taste buds…Maple Syrup!

THIS WEEKEND IN MONTREAL (MARCH 10-13)

Spring is a time of new things, so why not make this weekend a little experimental? The Festival Voix d’Amériques offers up a bevy of strange and fascinating shows (some for free!), while on the other end of the performance spectrum, but perhaps just as strange in its own way, is this weekend’s Montreal Burlesque Festival. All that, plus poetry, dance, art and live music to mellow and/or rock out to…

FREE THINGS IN MONTREAL: MARCH

Let the festivals and their related free events begin! Not that they ever stopped – not even winter can halt the arts in Montreal. But now that it’s March and the days seem to suddenly be brighter and longer (and slightly warmer), our enthusiasm for socializing also sees a considerable jump. We’re on our way to spring, and what better way to celebrate that fact, even if it does snow again, which it will, than by showing our smiling faces in public spaces…

THIS WEEKEND IN MONTREAL (FEBRUARY 17-20)

Despite some recent speculations to the contrary, this weekend’s festivities prove that rock n’ roll will never die – whether in music (Bon Jovi’s still kickin’), provocative theatre and dance, death-defying circus or in the culinary arts, where a rebel yell makes for a flavour sensation…

AWARD-WINNING THEATRE SWOOPS INTO THE SEGAL CENTRE

If you are visiting Montreal and not sure what to do after dinner, this iconic, Governor General’s Award-winning play is a must. Held at the Segal Centre, one of Montreal’s finest English theatres, from February 13 to March 6, Billy Bishop Goes to War is a heart-warming, wartime classic…

SEXY STAGE SHOWS AT LE CENTAUR

In the cold of January Montreal’s premier English-speaking theatre heats things up with their Wildside Festival, a program of risqué and out-there theatre productions culled from the best of the festivals that have graced the city’s theatres over the past year. My personal favourite of these is Neon Nightz, a tour-de-force cabaret show that both titillated and moved me when I saw it at the Edgy Women Festival last summer.
