Old Montreal's multidisciplinary art centre Phi Centre—and one of the best galleries and museums in Montreal—is opened an all-new rooftop stage this evening for live music, and admission is free to see today's acts.
From June 26 to August 27, the rooftop terrasse will host a new live music series called Sonication, "a hybrid experience, halfway between a film set and a festive happening," reads the art centre's website. The area is intended to act as a space where musicians are able to perform, while visitors can watch from screens placed throughout the insides of the building's fourth floor with sets "rich in artistic promise, between discovery, playful indulgence and relaxation."
There's also an ongoing promotion for the Phi Centre right now:
