Pierre's picks: 5 don't-miss events in Montreal this weekend
Kraftwerk, Louise Lecavalier, 4,000 Miles, Earth Hour Concert and The Beatles in Montreal this weekend
Every Friday, CBC Montreal’s Homerun arts reporter Pierre Landry brings you the top five things to see and do in Montreal this weekend.
Here are Pierre's picks for March 28, 29 and 30.
1. Germany's Kraftwerk are the architects of avant-garde electronic music. In the early 1970s, they trailblazed a movement now known as krautrock. Their shows are as impressive sonically and visually. This time, Kraftwerk are using 3-D technology for their stage projections. Catch the show at Metropolis (57 Ste-Catherine E.) on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. & 10:15 p.m.
2. It's been a big week for dancer Louise Lecavalier. She was awarded the Grand Prix du Conseil des Arts de Montréal and the Governor General's Performing Arts Award for lifetime achievement. Not one to rest on her laurels, Lecavalier presents her latest creation So Blue at Usine C (1345 Lalonde Ave.) on Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m.
3. Amy Herzog's smash 2011 Off-Broadway play 4,000 Miles rolls into Old Montreal. Roy Surette directs the Canadian Premiere of this story about a 21-year-old cyclist who moves in with his 91-year-old grandmother. The play's at Centaur Theatre (453 St. François-Xavier) until April 20.
4. The first annual Earth Hour Concert brings together 3 choirs (Choeur des enfants de Montréal, EMSB Senior Chorale, and McGill conservatory Youth Choir) who will present a program on the theme of light and hope. The concert's at Christ Church Cathedral (635 Ste-Catherine W) on Saturday at 8:15 p.m.
