Happy Ending
Montreal -> Bklyn

Pop Wrap (with pics)


I won't say my first trip to Pop Montreal came off without a hitch: the walks between venues were long, the weather was cold and rainy, and my hotel room reeked of smoke. Not to mention one measly day and night weren't nearly enough to survey the festival's full breadth and scope. But, I had fun at what I did see, and even if I didn't make any great new discoveries, it's always a kick to see the Canadians in their music-loving element. Salut Pop. A la prochaine...(More festival pics below.)
