Last Friday I went to go the Festival Atmosph’air that was happening here in Montreal near the Jean Talon Market. It was a street festival with stalls and food carts plus live bands all weekend long. My favourite local band, We are Wolves happened to be playing so I headed down there for a few hours to watch them play and see what was going on. I managed to take some photos of them preforming that I thought I’d share. It was a great show and it was so fun just to dance in the evening breeze before heading downtown for sushi. It’s so fun watching them play as they get so into the music and the newish drummer Pierre-Luc just goes apeshit which I love to watch.
We are Wolves played at the Cinémathèque Québécoise in celebration of Nuit Blanche last last weekend and I had my Nikon camera with me so I managed to get a few photos when I wasn`t dancing around. It was a really good show and they played a lot of their newer songs from their album La Mort Pop Club that I reviewed last year (here). They always have so much theatrics and this show was no different, the only downside was having to wait for an hour and a half from them to start. Me and Victor had a lot of fun despite that, although every time I sang along he gave a bit of the eye – it`s not my fault I know all the lyrics and like to sing along. Lol. Cannot wait to see more We are Wolves shows this year, the benefit of living in the same city as your favourite band I guess.
Nuit Blanche is a super fun festival we have in Montreal where for 1 winter day and night you can go around to the city to all these museums, café’s, art galleries and more to see artwork, participate in activities, see bands and so much more. I love it even though the last few years I haven’t put much effort into finding activities to do for the whole night up until the 3am cut-off. We actually spent more time checking the Montreal en Lumiere festival that we hadn’t had a chance to see yet instead of seeing art….
I’ve never done the Milk Run but I’ve always wanted to. The line was too huge though, same for the ferris wheel which I go on every year. The next day we wanted to go back as the Montreal en Lumiere festival had one more day left but we were way too tired and lazy.
My favorite band, We Are Wolves was playing for free though at the Cinémathèque Québécoise so I dragged him there after checking out the festival area. They room had amazing ballooons attached to the ceiling.
Victor is a little pissed at me because he wanted to go to the Belgo building which we went to on our first Nuit Blanche years ago that had 4 levels of art studios to check out (we were actually a block away from the Belgo building earlier) and they ended up playing at 12am instead of their supposed time. We ended up waiting around for an hour and a half and they played a full hour set. I looked online while we were waiting and it said the other events will go on to 3am but by the time the concert was over and we had walked there…there was literally no art studios open. :( Let’s just say we were a little bummed about it.
Ps. This was actually posted on Friday night at 11pm because I hadn’t finished it by Wednesday night and then I got really drunk with my co-workers have an extra shitty shift at work and was too hung over all of Thursday for blogging)
