There’s the press conference for the Unveiling of the 2014 International MURAL Festival Program at Cinemas Excentris.

Obviously, you cannot miss the hockey game so why not watch it before getting your swing on? It'll be a Swing & Hockey night as the game will be showcased in the second room and The Lost Finger & Sweet Life Society will perform in the main room of Le Belmont, after the game. So if the Habs win, stay and celebrate. If they lose, swing the pain away! GO HABS GO!
