THIS WEEKEND IN MONTREAL (February 4-6)

Posted on February 4th, 2011 by .


From February 4-6, Montreal is all over the entertainment map: from tap dancing to tobogganing, from local theatre to something called the Super Bowl…

[Family Fun] La fête des Neiges is only around for one more weekend, so if you’ve got kids, or, are the type of adult who likes things like hockey, sleigh rides, zip lines or tobogganing down something called the “Superglisse” (!!!), then get yourself out to Parc Jean-Drapeau ASAP.

[Dance] Tap dance virtuoso Savion Glover, alongside several of his protégés, a flamenco artist and a live band, performs in Montreal for the first time on Sunday at the Salle Wilfred-Pelletier. Want a sneak peak?

[Indie Rocks] At Cabaret du Mile End on Saturday, you’ll find some of the biggest names in indie rock (well, “surf rock”, “noise pop” and “shoegaze” technically), when Best Coast, Wavves and Montreal/LA duo No Joy hit the stage.

[Theatre] Tableau D’Hôte Theatre presents Daniel MacIvor’s “Humans”, which uses choreography, live music and storytelling to explore the human condition. All weekend at the Segal Centre.

[Super Bowl] You’re probably in one of two camps for this one: either you’re not even totally sure what it is or you’ve been planning for weeks what to do during the biggest football game of the year. If you somehow fall between the cracks, check out this list of sports-friendly bars that will take a one-day vacation from broadcasting Montreal Canadiens games.

[Concerts] We’re a little music-heavy this TWIM, but this one is important: Heart, the two sisters responsible for bestowing epic power rock songs like Barracuda on the world, are going to blow the roof off of Salle Wilfred-Pelletier on Saturday.
