M for Montreal: full 2016 lineup ++ BV showcase (Cindy Lee, New Fries & more)
The 2016 edition of M for Montreal is coming up later this month (November 16 - 19) and the full lineup has been released and includes Spencer Krug’s Moonface, Baauer, Martha Wainwright, Elephant Stone, Nobunny, The Appleseed Cast, Leif Vollebekk, Tasseomancy and more. Full lineup is below and passes are on sale.
BrooklynVegan will once again have a showcase at M, happening November 18 at Casa Del Popolo and it's headlined by Bernardino Femminielli (who is currently on tour with Silver Apples), plus Cindy Lee, New Fries, and Helena Deland.
Cindy Lee, you may remember, is the current project of former Women guitarist/singer Patrick Flegel. You can download the band's two 2015 release for free over at their Geocities site, and stream one song below.
New Fries, meanwhile, hail from Toronto and make fun, post-punky noisepop, heavy on the skronk. The band's new album, More, will be out November 25 via Telephone Explosion and you can check out "Mary Poppins Pockets" below.
Helena Deland hails from Montreal and her dark brand of dreampop should appeal to fans of Mazzy Star. You can stream her Drawing Board EP below.
Tickets for the BV M for Montreal showcase (co-presented by Heavy Trip and CKUT 90.3FM) are on sale now. If you'll be in Montreal, we hope to see you there.
