Indoors: Reunion with Beyries at Corona

We could see her in September at the opening of the Jazz Festival, radiant on the big outdoor stage. But Beyries, who launched their excellent second album Meet in the fall of 2020, really started their new tour only two months ago. So here is the singer-songwriter making her Montreal premiere at Corona on April 7, for a reunion under the sign of sweetness, joy and sincerity.

The most recent issue of Sequences

The most recent issue (330) of the film magazine Sequences gives a big thumbs up to Quebec short films. The file includes a gallery of portraits of workers (distributors, artistic directors, producers, etc.) who promote the court, the “Unique in its genre” section which reviews 10 outstanding Quebec courts over time, as well as a few reports. An article by Benoit Desjardins, general and artistic director of the Longue vue sur le court festival, illustrates with great frankness the challenges of people working in this field. A must-read issue.

Raphaël Bussières, aka Lucill

Singer-songwriter Lucill released a second album in early March, Snake-eyesin which he always distills a frankly well-made melancholic French-speaking pop. But the opportunities to see the ex-bassist of Heat on stage have become rare since the start of the pandemic, so we can’t wait to see what kind of wood Raphaël Bussières is warming up on stage. He will be at the Plaza Theater on April 9 surrounded by four musicians, including the two ex-Malajube Francis Mineau and Thomas Augustin. It promises.

He will finally go on stage, guitar slung over his shoulder, to present his album His greatest hitsreleased in the fall of 2021. His writing and his melodies, tinged with rap, have conquered a large audience in the past year. The Terrebonne artist formerly known as PL3 should present a first show full of color and emotion.
