Wyrd MTL :: Realities Emerge on Monday June 20, 2011!

We’re proud to officially announce the eastern expansion of the Wyrd cosmos. Thanks to the exceptionally hard-work of Jesse Locke, Gabriel de Jasmin, and Suoni Per Il Popolo, Wyrd MTL will invade Montreal on Monday June 20, 2011. The format and philosophy remain pure; a double-stage frenzy of fringe adjectives will blaze through an evening stacked with over ten performers. With a secondary stage built specifically for Wyrd MTL, the folks at La Sala Rossa have gone the extra-extra mile and are housing a “MEGA BAZARR” of merch featuring visual art, purveyors of printed matter and Canada’s finest record labels. There is also tell of a taco truck hitting the pavement at 7pm. Full line-up and set-times below! For further information, visit here.
