POP Montréal dans la ruelle is a series of pop-up hybrid concerts (IRL and streamed) beginning April 9 on the rooftop balcony behind the POP Montréal office and Ursa (the alley north of St-Viateur east of Parc ave).
The first concert will feature the lovely Martha Wainwright who was the patron saint of our balcony series in 2020. She will be performing songs from her upcoming album that she will be releasing in the fall of 2021. We will also welcome the very special Tony Ezzy, the eccentric and outlandish artist who was recently renovicted and forced to leave the Mile End.
Tony’s story is all too common. In addition to the talented performers, a spokesperson from Mile End Ensemble, the group that helped save SW Welch’s, will discuss these important issues and how you can help push back against developers like Shiller Lavy. We hope this upcoming series highlights what makes Mile End so special and the need to keep the community, including its talented artists, vibrant and safe.
