Montreal Hit List: Sigur Rós, Strip Spelling Bee, Bad Religion and more!

WEDNESDAY MARCH 27

7pm. Gabrielle Papillon + Laurent Bourque + Ria Mae @ Upstairs Jazz Bar, 1254 MacKay. Montreal-Halifax Indie songstress Gabrielle Papillion will win your heart if she hasn’t already. Accompanied by Laurent Bourque and Halifax folk musician Ria Mae. $15.

8pm. Sigur Rós @ Bell Centre, 1909 avenue des Canadiens-de-Montreal. Icelandic post-rock group Sigur Rós bring themselves, in all their odd-glory, to Montreal for the first time since like, ever (2008?). Montreal electronic musician Tim Hecker will open the show. Tickets are $52/$72, buy them quick!

9pm. Montreal Strip Spelling Bee @ Theatre St-Catherine, 264 St-Catherine East. Well, it’s exactly what it sounds like. Spelling and striptease skills count, alike. Rules are extensive, but there is a chance that you could wind up naked. Just sayin’. Check out all the details here. Sign up is at 8:30pm. $10.

THURSDAY MARCH 28 TO MONDAY APRIL 1

Mile End Poets’ Festival @ several St-Laurent and Parc venues. Mile End-based poets and jazz musicians join forces for a five-day uniquely borough-specific spring festival. Expect a great line-up of performers at all of our favourite Mile End venues! Details here. Ticket prices vary.

FRIDAY MARCH 29

8:30pm. Boats + J.M Farr + Dagan Harding @ Le Cagibi, 5490 St-Laurent. Winnipeg’s own Boats take the stage at Cagibi, accompanied by rural Quebec-born, Toronto-based James Farr (from Honeyman and Brothers Farr fame) and Montreal’s Dagan Harding. $7. Advance tickets can be purchased here.

SATURDAY MARCH 30

8pm. Bad Religion @ Metropolis, 59 St-Catherine. No explanation needed. Bad Religion is in town and if you’re not at this show then you’re doing your Saturday night all wrong! Tickets here.

SUNDAY MARCH 31

4pm. Bad Uncle + La cabane à sucre @ L’Escogriffe, 4467 St-Denis. L’Escogriffe celebrates its 13th anniversary with a late afternoon cabane à sucre-inspired party, featuring alleged Jager Bacon bombs, maple Jamieson, and more goodies!
