Every Friday, CBC Montreal’s Homerun arts reporter Pierre Landry brings you the top five things to see and do in Montreal over the weekend.
Here are Pierre's picks for July 5, 6 and 7.
It is the final weekend of the Jazz Fest. But fear not, there are other festivals to keep you busy!
1. Montreal-based Leif Vollebekk is one of the city's best singer-songwriters. His three-night stand at the Musée d'Art Contemporain starts Friday at 8 p.m.
2. Nikki Yanofsky made her Jazz Fest debut in 2006 when she was just 12-years-old. Now she's all grown up and working with the legendary Quincy Jones. Catch her at Théâtre du Nouveau Monde on Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m.
3. Circus performers from all parts of the world are in town for Montréal Complètement Cirque. If you walk downtown this weekend, chances are you will come face-to-face with a clown or a circus artist.
4. It's a Zoofest out there! Yes, this festival can be spicy and raunchy, but that's a good thing. Music, theatre, and art... oh my! Until July 28.
5. Justin Townes Earle is the son of singer-songwriter Steve Earle. He was named after Townes Van Zandt. That's a lot to live up to. And he does. Brilliantly! Sunday at 8 p.m. at Café Campus.
