Published Apr 24, 2012Pop Montreal has become an musical institution over the years since starting up in 2002, but truthfully not everyone can make their way to out to the Quebec-area music festival next fall. Luckily, organizers have decided to once again do the next best thing and bring a bit of the fest to the rest of the country for the Pop Off tour.
This year's travelling portion of Pop Montreal will run June 15 to 29 between Ontario and Alberta. Representing Montreal proper will be indie pop act Parlovr, who will also be out on the road promoting their new album Kook Soul. As previously reported, the album arrives May 15 through Dine Alone.
Montreal's Goose Hut will also appear on the bill, as will Toronto's Hooded Fang.
The trip kicks off June 15 at Toronto's Silver Dollar club as part of NXNE, and will hit up Sled Island and the Saskatchewan Jazz Festival along the way. You can see the details down below.
