Photo Journal: Pop Montreal From 0 to 6000 in 60 Minutes
The Pop Montreal free show at Place des Arts started about as dead as dead could be. Granted, it started at 5 p.m., and most people are still shuffling papers around their desks in that part of town. A few milled around as the afternoon Masala DJs did their stuff. Rain kept others at bay. Where was everyone? By 9:30, though, when A Tribe Called Red took the stage, the crowd packed the square. Michael Bakouch elbowed his way through a sea of iphones raised high. Soon he too was subsumed by the pulsating crowd and brilliant light show that accompanied them.
Pop Montreal takes place throughout September. For more of Michael Bakouch’s photographic work, check out his website HERE and his blog HERE.
