POP MONTREAL Show Guide

In Canada, Celebrate Your Scene, Features, Gigs, Montréal, Worldwide on September 27, 2010 at 5:30 am

This year’s Pop Montreal is lookin’ like one for the books. The ever-so-good Said the Gramophone wrote up an excellent guide for this year’s Pop Montreal. Basing this post off that and the POP MONTREAL site, I’m gonna go through what would be a pretty ideal long weekend of music and then we’ll see how close I come to accomplishing it.

Pop Montreal starts Wednesday, September 29th and the fun doesn’t stop until Sunday, October 3rd.

*Underlined shows/events are ones I will foreseeably be going to. Sometimes, there are overlaps (Thursday’s a mess, in the best way possible) so I will end up choosing one. Here’s a little guide of the best of this year’s POP MONTREAL.
