We’ll Be Dancing in the Street
Get your comfy shoes ready for this weekend’s annual downtown sidewalk sale on Ste-Catherine between Jeanne Mance and St-Marc.
As part of the Ste. Catherine Street Celebrates events, Q92 will be presenting free live concerts on the Dumoulin stage outside the HMV megastore (corner Ste Catherine & Peel):
Pascale Picard – Saturday at 1PM
David Usher – Saturday at 4PM
Hayley Sales – Sunday at 1PM
Sass Jordan – Sunday at 3PM
Hoping for some great walking, shopping and rocking weather!
Update: The David Usher concert on Saturday afternoon was awesome! Sorry I didn’t get any photos but I didn’t have my camera with me. The set lasted about 40 minutes and he performed some of his more popular songs. Even though it started to rain, many people still stayed to watch. He was rocking it out all over the stage. At one point towards the end of the show, he stopped singing and asked a lady in the crowd to put down her umbrella so that a little girl could see. Then he came down into the street and I think he was singing to the little girl. He got everyone around him to sit on the ground while he was crouched down and singing. So there was a whole crowd of people towards the front of the stage who were sitting in the middle of Ste Catherine street as he sang his last song. There was an autograph session outside the HMV afterwards but I didn’t stick around for that.
If you’re planning to go to today’s concerts, I hope they are just as good. But there should be a little bit more crowd control for people who are trying to move past the concert stage area. Things got a little pushy at one point towards the sides and I’d hate to see a fight break out with that many people around.
