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. 

1. The Centaur Theatre opens its new season with Steve Galluccio's latest play, The St. Leonard Chronicles. A Sunday brunch quickly turns into a heated discussion in this fast-paced comedy about a young Italian couple that wants to move to Beaconsfield. Until November 3rd.

2. Blue Man Group is taking over Place des Arts this weekend with its one-of-a-kind theatrics, music and blue make-up! Until Sunday at SalleWilfrid-Pelletier.

3. Quebec singer-songwriter Pierre Lapointe is known to give heartfelt performances splashed with good humour. His tour makes a stop at Le Club in QuartierDix30 in Brossard. Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m.

The Montreal band is on at l'Oblique on Rivard Street.
4. Montreal band The Franklin Electric is one to keep a very close eye on. With the band's introspective lyrics and honest melodies, it's only a matter of time before the group becomes a household name. Catch them at l'Oblique on Rivard Street. Saturday at 8 p.m.


5. Need a good laugh? You're likely to find it at Yuk Yuk's, a newly opened comedy club in the basement of the Rialto Theatre in Mile End. This weekend, Dave Foley of Kids in the Hall is there.
