Pop Montreal @ SXSW 2012 (1 day party, 1 official showcase)
Just like we’ll do for Hardly Art on SXSW Wednesday & Thursday, BrooklynVegan will hand over Hotel Vegas (aka “Hotel Vegan” during the day) to Pop Montreal Friday night, for their official SXSW showcase.
We’ll be there until around 6pm that day, but after that, Pop Montreal will host their showcase featuring artists Blackie, UN, Jef Barbara, Motzart’s Sister, Duzheknew, Jennifer Castle, Cousins, and Tops.
Pop Montreal, the SXSW of Montreal, will also be hosting a day party on Thursday, at a venue that has yet to be announced. Of this, they said in a press release
At SXSW, POP Montreal wants to let you know that POP is Serious. Thursday, March 15th, POP will host a dayparty with FREE drinks for the first 150 people who show up.
We don’t know where it is, but the event will include artists Trust, Doldroms, Speech Debelle, Jef Barbara, Tops, Zammuto, Adam & The Amethysts, Leif Vollebekk, and Cousins.
Toronto duo Trust, aside from SXSW, are playing two shows in New York in March, and one in Chicago in April, and have their LP, TRST coming out Tuesday, Feb. 28th. The record being released via Arts & Crafts, is Trust’s debut LP. The tracklist, and video for “Bulbform” are available at BrooklynVegan.
Speech Debelle‘s LP Freedom of Speech is out today (2/21) in the U.S. via Big Dada.
