2009 “Under The Snow” Music Festival

Posted on February 24, 2009 |

One of my favorites (of the many) music festivals we have here in Montreal
is back for it’s 5th edition. I speak of “Under The Snow” which will be
in full effect for 4 glorious days starting March 11th and ending on the 14th.

This festival specializes in presenting the latest shoegaze, electro and post
bands outthere. International bands are showcased with our own local talent
to give you a taste of what’s new and poppin’ fresh.

Over the years, thanks to UTS, I got to see bands like Sianspheric,
A Northern Chorus, Dirty On Purpose and Aberdeen City do their thing.

One of this year’s headliners, Caspian, are without a doubt, of my favorite post
rockers in the game today. So this is definitely a show not to be missed.

All this will go down at the Casa Del Popolo / La Sala Rossa venues
which are across the street from each other so you’ll be able to check
as many bands as possible with much ease.

For more information on how to obtain tickets and/or a festival pass, check out
their official website: www.underthesnow.ca

Here’s the full schedule (w/ MySpace links) to sample each performers on their
respective night.


Casa Del Popolo lost their liquor license so without their license, no live shows
can go on so all Popolo shows have either been moved to Il Motore or Le Divan

    hey man, thanks for this.

    unfortunately, you may have heard about casa shutting down the shows due to licensing problems. the caspian/thisquietarmy has been moved to Divan Orange, and yellow6/apillow has been moved to Il Motore. we are still trying to move the other 2 Casa shows.

    to be continued…
