M for Montreal, who we presented the Wednesday of our Lost Weekend 2 day parties in partnership with, had a SXSW showcase of their own, too. Along with Exclaim!, and with support from Musicaction and SODEC, M for Montreal's showcase on Swan Dive's patio started with a cocktail party (presented by Québec Creates and POP Montréal) with Corridor, and continued with sets from ANEMONE, Milk & Bone, FRIGS, Lisa LeBlanc, Partner, and Le Couleur. We caught '90s alt-rock loving Partner and disco Francophones Le Couleur, who started a dance party on the patio. Find pictures of both bands in the gallery above.

Between sets, we also stepped inside Swan Dive to catch Lido Pimienta at the Pop Montreal showcase that was happening at the same time.
