We are finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel as the summer is finally taking its place in our wonderful city. The Habs just entered the east conference final. Today, we're sure that everyone in the city woke up to the sunshine with a huge smile on their faces. On top of that it's long week-end. Do you need more reasons to come party with us! Here is what’s going down this week-end;
Thursday, May 15th
To start the weekend, how about a 5 à 7 Retro - Throwback Thursday at Le Kiyomi Centropolis? Go listen to your favourite hits from the 70's to 90's and play your favourite games.
There's The Franklin Electric - This is How I Let You Down album Launch at Le Cabaret du Mile End. This will be a cool relax night.
"Girls just wanna have fun" and there's Quattre Filles, Un Punch at Clébard. This will be perfect to start a girls night out.
For a dance-all-night-long type of night Deep Jeudi with DJ PatBoogie at Time Supper CLub is the place for you. There's a terrace which is perfect for the good weather we'll have.

Do you love punk rock? There’s the Pouzza Festival happening. A bunch of bands will be performing throughout the weekend in different venues. We recommend The Hold Steady at Foufounes Électriques.

For us, Fridays mean FUNKtastique Fridays at La Porte Rouge. This is our weekly spot and if it wasn’t guaranteed to have fun there, we wouldn’t suggest it here.
A wild, sexy and rowdy night will be going down and you might not want to miss it. It’s Sex Music at Blue Dog. Don’t believe us? Go and check the photos of previous editions of this event on our photos section or just go see for yourself.

Before anything, you have to watch the 1st east conference final game Habs vs Rangers. Location: Bell Center or every TV there is in Montreal!
There is another show you shouldn’t miss for the Pouzza Festival. It’s the Mad Caddies at Club Soda.
For a funky night full of good vibes, you should check out Enter the Village at Backstage Bar. They will be officially opening their terrace, that can only be a good thing, right?
