Singing and dancing before the big night

La Veillée de l’avant-veille

December 30, 8 p.m.

Make sure your hat’s on tight – you won’t want to lose it as you jig and bounce your way through these great traditional tunes! Three groups will crank up the heat: La bottine souriante – celebrating their 40th anniversary – Le Vent du Nord and De Temps Antan.

Mononc’ Serge and Anonymus

Club Soda
December 30, 9 p.m.

It’s already been six years since Mononc’ Serge last shared the stage with metal band Anonymus. As anyone who saw their last show together will tell you, it was one for the ages. This reunion is sure to be just as memorable. Opening act Carotté combines punk and traditional sounds, the perfect warm-up for a chilly winter night!
