Even though Montreal may be known for its eventful summers, the fact that the leaves are turning yellow and the chill of northern winds are hitting the streets doesn’t mean that the city is quite ready to throw in the towel. For 10 years now, POP Montreal has been warming up our autumn nights with indie music of every genre. From rock to rap, this local festival takes over venues across the city to bring you a slew of international and local acts. This year they’ve even upped the ante with a massive outdoor Arcade Fire show in the downtown core. Yet even without these Grammy Award-winning giants, the festival still has a lot to offer over its five jam-packed days. Side A focuses on the big names like Grimes, Chromeo and tUnE-yArDs, while Side B brings you some of the lesser known but no-less-worthy artists that will be appearing on this year’s lineup.
