This year’s edition of Pop Montreal will feature a conversation between two of music’s most celebrated artists: David Byrne and Win Butler. This rare event, set for September 22nd at The Ukrainian Federation in Montreal, will see the two musicians discussing Byrnes new book, How Music Works, “in the context of their own personal and professional experiences as musicians and music lovers,” according to a press release.
On the music front, this year’s lineup offers Grizzly Bear, Gotye, Hot Snakes, Gang Gang Dance, Dirty Three, Lil B, Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire, and Tim Hecker. Plus, former American Idol contestant Jacob Lusk will perform a set entirely of R. Kelly covers, because he can.
