The first ever "M for Movember" fundraising concert at Montreal's Club Soda on Nov. 17 will feature some high-profile local musicians, including Tim from the Stills and Yann Perreau,  along with a number of comics.

The movement to raise money in November for prostate cancer research and awareness is spreading among Montreal artists.

For Harold de Varennes, it has become a source of artistic inspiration.

"It's the curves. It's the possibility," de Varennes said, the funny, sexy, manly side."

De Varennes has another reason to support the Movember movement.

"It's also the health aspect for men," he said.  "I think often of my father, because I lost him to cancer when I was eight."
