Alphred Galère et les muses éphémères

From the coldest depths of a Montreal winter was forged a band composed of a most varied musical background: Alfred Galere et les Muses Ephemeres! An infant of not even a year old, yet growing in style and assurance, the seven member ensemble brings to the listener a fine blend of folk and gypsy grooves, with lyrics in French and English that are sure to make one ponder the outer reaches of the human psyche, melodies of both a sorrowful and colourful nature, and rhythms to sway slowly or dance without worry to. Simple but complex, organized yet chaotic and at times wonderfully unexpected, Alphred Galere looks forward to seeing you on the dance floor at this year’s infringement festival and beyond!

Bilingual, Saturday, June 19th at 7pm at 3 Minots, 3812 boul St-Laurent, PAY-WHAT-YOU-CAN

Bruno Normandin


Bruno est un tripeux de guitare, la musique l’inspire et le calme. Dans cette optique, l’organisation des sons précède le plus souvent les mots. Il écrit selon les différents univers où la musique l’emmène. Ainsi s’amorce un voyage dans les tourments et ce qui les apaise. Sur scène, il est accompagné de la charmante voix de France Levasseur.

In French, Saturday, June 19th w/Rachel Marcoux,show starts at 9pm at Bistro Mousse Café, 2522 rue Beaubien Est, pay-what-you-can

Louis-André Bourque

Native of Saint-Georges-de-Beauce, Louis-André has been based in Montreal for a few years.  A singer-songwriter, he has chosen chanson as the language he is privileged to use to communicate with his contemporaries.  Some have compared him to Brassens, an influence he is far from denying.  His texts are as much instantaneous as delirious and  they travel through our society raised by an amusing sarcasm.  He will be accompanied by two musicians overflowing with talent and energy: Jean-Philippe Gilbert on guitar and Pierre-Olivier Ouellet on accordeon.  This is a team that knows how to electrify a room.

Martin Robichaud

Triple laureate in the Ma Première Place des Arts contest in 1999, he has accumulated experiences on stage for more than 15 years, singing and playing percussion in styles ranging from progressive rock to traditional Québécoise and Celtic, passing through (more “current”) chanson française. He dreams of a « Québecadie » or an « Acadibec », a found francophonie, from Louisianna to Cape Breton. The craftsman advances at his rhythm and hopes to find a team that will shoulder him while respecting his step.

Psyn Langwage

PsynLangwage is a revolution in the Montreal Hip-Hop scene.

STORY: Three brothers (DaDestroya, Negrosapien and HemmRage) fed up with the direction that Hip-Hop music was taking, decided to band together and destroy everything in their path.

When people hear about Hip-Hop, they come to expect talk of jewelery, guns and other cheap tricks. PsynLangwage is here to change that. They mix Comedy, Crowd Participation and Paper Bag Heads to bring performing back to the art form.

Tired of bling-music? Do you want Change? Ready to put that bag over your head?

We think you’re ready to PSYN UP!


Saturday, June 19th, 4pm, 3 Minots, 3812 boul St-Laurent and Friday, June 25th w/Sunshine, Blood Ballet Cabaret, All Tales Tall and more at Barfly, 4062A boul St-Laurent, show starts at 9pm, PAY-WHAT-YOU-CAN

Rachel Marcoux


Je suis une chanson qui a été « gossée » à même l’écorce d’une épinette.
Je suis un instrument de musique fabriqué à partir du même bois,
celui qu’on peut retrouver dans la grande forêt de Chapais.
J’étais celle qui se cachait par crainte de se « planter ».
Je suis celle qui a quand même osé sortir du bois.
Je suis l’artisane de cette chanson que je travaille à rendre
de plus en plus mélodieuse et harmonieuse,
afin que l’on puisse entendre qui je suis dans ces airs que je respire.
Je suis une chanson. Je suis un instrument. Je suis là!
Sur les planches d’une scène provenant probablement du même bois que le mien.
