Pop Montreal 2012 free shows! + What I am doing!

Here is a guide to all the FREE Pop Montreal 2012 music shows! In bold are some shows I will probably check out.

I think I have the vast majority if not all, but if I missed something, I would not be surprised! There is also plenty of other free stuff, including symposiums (one with Guy Picciotto of Rites of Spring/Fugazi!), films, record fair and plenty more!

Check out Pop Montreal‘s official site for everything, including a revamped schedule this year!

Sean over at Said the Gramophone also put together a nice guide to the festival! And I copy him at the end by pointing out specifically what I am doing! Some are duplicates, as I may see whomever twice, or not sure which set to attend yet. Also, I added bonus Pop Montreal preview links at the bottom!

I may edit revise this post, as there are a few shows a little confusing/conflicting, like Citizen Vintage on Thursday or if Sydney Wayser is playing Place de Pasteur Friday (Pop Montreal and Audio Blood conflict). If I do, I will just strike the original text. Leave a comment (or tweet me!) if I have something wrong or needs updating. It should be okay, but of course check the official sites to be sure (bla bla bla!). And I may keep adding some artist bandcamp pages!
