Last night I worked the door for The Human Rights, at Bobards in Montreal, a really talented reggae band from Toronto. They knew how to engage their audience (note worthy because alot of bands don't know how to do this, or come across as pretentious or fake) as much as express their music. Their music is positive, intentional, aware and intelligent. Now I wish I had taken some photos since I spontaneously decided to mention them in my blog but this video will have to suffice. If they come to your neighborhood, they are absolutely worth the money to go see live.
Happening MapI was recently contacted by HappeningMap, a new website artist directory intended to target visitors to Montreal whom are looking for an accessible way to tap into local culture & underground talent. Whether you are looking for an artistic adventure such as what I can offer (body painting in your hotel room for your photoshoot or night out at a special event) or original paintings to take home, this new website is destined to become a great resource for anyone looking to tap into the underground creative culture hub that Montreal is. Often visitors will come to Montreal unsure of how to find the cool events or hidden artists and often end up at the very mainstream, well promoted events or bars that don't really demonstrate what makes Montreal unique, so this is now one resource to help bridge the gap. HappeningMap is still in it's infancy and is looking for more artists (apply here: http://happeningmap.com/about) to represent as well as is looking for more Hosts to regularly receive & promote HappeningMap's newsletter & website.
