Art Fest to Hold Annual Info Party, Launch New Website
Entering its 11th year, Art Matters, Montreal’s student-run multidisciplinary art festival, is back. Get ready.
The Men Leave Home to Conquer
With dirty distortion, spacey jamming and Stooge-esque ferocity, The Men somehow manage to sound like punk’s roots and its future at the same time.
They bang through rough, rocking numbers and intense verging-on-hardcore passages, bringing together elements of krautrock and shoegaze for a record that’s as brilliant as it is varied.

Angus Balbernie on Direction, Dance Ecology & Studio 303
“People ask me to describe my work and, wickedly, I tend to just write what I want for fun—you’re allowed to at my age. When I write about my workshops and pieces, I’m a bit naughty,” says Angus Balbernie.
