If you can’t make it to the Chromeo show, no excuses for missing this one; you have to make it to the Official Chromeo after party at 3643 St.Laurent Apt. 200. Dj Simahlak will have you groving and dancing all night long! View event>

You should already know how it goes down at La Porte Rouge on Fridays, it's FUNKtastique Fridays. Every week, beautiful peeps ready to party are there to have some drinks, dance and basically just have fun. We always have good times at FUNKtastique Fridays. Isn't that what Fridays are for?!

Are you a party animal? There is a big party called Release the Beast at Apollon. This will definitely be bananas so you might want to go there and let the beast in you out. Sounds will be by DJ Tizi and DJ Sharky. Remember, don’t be shy. You can totally go cray cray! View event>

If you’re into indie/rock, you want to go see We Are Wolves at Metropolis. This is just one more great band straight out of the five one foh! We weren't joking when we said Montreal knows what’s up musically. View event>

There’s a Cinco De Mayo Party at Mad Hatters but let’s be honest here; we all know it’s just an excuse to drink tequila, tequila and more tequila! Get your sombrero and go party like you were in Mexico sippin' tequila like it was water. View event>

For years, the BUST A MOVE festival has been bringing together all types of different people who share one same passion, dance. After watching BAM in the Montreal Metro’s demonstration, we can say BAM 2014 at La TOHU will definitely be off the hook. You certainly do not want to miss out on this event. View event>

Yes, M.I.A. performing at Metropolis, again! She will be in our city for the Matangi album tour and we can already tell this show will be beyond amazing. All we can say is, once she gets on stage, you will not stop moving wether your dancing or jumping or whatever. She knows how to make the crowd go nuts! View event>
