SMAQ announces Les Soirées SMAQ shows and #SupportYourVenues campaign

Indie Montreal‘s IMTL Press is excited to announce Les Soirées SMAQ, in collaboration with Coup de cœur francophone and with the financial support of Musicaction. On November 4, 6 & 7, Les Scènes de musique alternative du Québec (SMAQ) will present three hybrid concerts at two of its member venues – Ausgang Plaza and Cabaret Lion d’Or – with staging by Pestacle.

As part of the Coup de coeur francophone festival, which presents francophone artists, Les SMAQ will showcase 6 acts while highlighting the hard-hit independent venues still suffering from the pandemic.

This series will mark the official launch of the Les SMAQ’s crowdfunding campaign #SoutenezVosScènes (#SupportYourVenues) which will run via the platform La Ruche.
