The 9th Nuit émergente : Face A

Opening night at La Nuit émergente is an impressive double bill of polished contemporary songcraft. Sudbury’s own McLean, followed by Étienne Fletcher, who hails from Saskatchewan, are both masters of musical ambiance, with richly modulated compositions that create moments to be inhabited. McLean delivers an impressive performance with just a classical guitar and a backing singer. Fletcher’s four-piece outfit responds with something heftier. Their concert event will take you places.

In addition to this show, there will be performances by Aurel, artist in residence at La Slague and Philippe Mathieu, who will launch his album, “Salut Philippe”.

Stay tuned, we will share all the details of this first night very soon.

For now, we can tell you to come early! We have a little surprise in store for you at the Bistro starting at 5 PM!

Crank your turntables and place the needle ; it’s time for The 9th Nuit émergente : Face A.

The 9th Nuit émergente : Face B

A dozen artists playing musical hide-and-seek all over the building. At every turn, you just might find the next big thing, or your new favourite band. A free-form festival where you choose your own adventure, and where there are no bad choices. Wherever you end up is exactly where you’re meant to be. La Nuit Émergente has been creating memorable musical encounters in unconventional spaces for nearly 10 years now.

Crank your turntables and place the needle, here’s the line-up: Joly, Marc-André Labelle, Martine Fortin, Cayenne, Kimya, McLean and Rosie Valland! 

The party ends at the Townehouse Tavern’s “Aft’heure” starting at 11pm with Montreal’s feminist and anti-capitalist queer rapper Calamine, the return of Rouge Pompier, two guys in a two-piece rock band, and DJ Deux Bums, two delinquents behind the turntables with a passion for obscure and rhythmic tunes !
