Montreal: Suoni Per Il Popolo
Despite the chilly weather, summer’s here and we’re getting ready to inaugurate the season in style! First, we’re booking a pass for Suoni Per Il Popolo (June 3 to 30, suoniperilpopolo.org), Montreal’s coolest avant-garde music festival. Soul-rock lovers will flock to TV on the Radio’s concert tomorrow, free-jazz aficionados are dying to get a ticket for Dave Burrell (June 6), and French pop freaks are heading to Pas Chic Chic (June 5).
Tired after all the long nights out? Ask for the Massage Mystique at Espace Nomad (4650 St-Laurent Blvd., 514-842-7279, espacenomad.ca), a lovely Mile-End massage spa. Using warm essential oils, the therapist massages your head, neck and face, then the whole body, for a blissful and rejuvenating experience.
