Jude Law plays DOM HEMINGWAY, a larger-than-life safecracker with a cocky swagger who is witty, unhinged and full of piss and vinegar.  After twelve years in prison, he sets off with his partner in crime Dickie (Richard E. Grant) looking to collect what he's owed for keeping his mouth shut and protecting his boss Mr. Fontaine (Demian Bichir). After a near death experience, Dom tries to re-connect with his estranged daughter (Emilia Clarke), but is soon drawn back into the only world he knows, looking to settle the ultimate debt. 




Spazztic Ear Honey, in association with CJLO, are proud to present, the 4th Edition of the ever popular THIRD BASS

Spring is peeking somewhere on the horizon, we can all feel it. Undeniably, the best way to celebrate its imminent arrival is to dance like your life depended on it. 

You agree? Good, 'cause, ladies and gents, here comes the 4th edition of THIRD BASS.

Come get your fix of low frequencies with your fellow bass heads, as our duo of VJs turn the Playhouse into a beautifully chaotic melting pot of sheer visual mayhem.

For this edition, one of Artbeat Montreal's (PIU PIU) founders is paying us a visit. Fun times ahead.


- MARK THE MAGNANIMOUS (hip hop & midtempo bass / banging, funky, eclectic, piu piu)

- FREDY INk (electro & hip hop / pumping, soulful, thick, fervent)

- YELLOW SHADES (glitch hop, ghetto funk, DnB / explosive, funky, badass, crazy)



For ten years, Trigger Effect has been a staple of the Montreal Punk Rock “n” Roll scene. They are a touring managers best friend and worse nightmare, running around the world and exposing everyone to their radioactive brand of music.

          Tonight, Trigger Effect will end their reign. Nick Babeu, Trigger Effect's lead singer passed away this past November, and the band decided that without Babeu, Trigger Effect should not exist, save for one, last, show.

          Tonight, Friday, April 4th, Trigger Effect will take the stage at Foufounes to say goodbye to the band, and they will take the stage to mark their tenth anniversary and blow the roof off of Foufounes.

The evening will be host to three opening bands. One secret act, as well as Montreal's Hashed Out, and Dig It Up.

      Guest vocalists will be stepping in to pay homage to Babeu, but as his range was so wide, Trigger Effect needed to get a lot of people to step up. Among them, Mikey HeppnerPaul Ablaze, Wade MacNeil, Alex CartierAlyssa MoscaHugo MudieKev KeegMichael RokosCameron TurinJean BelangerNick OaksNick RazAlex Kaluza, Taylor Freund and Ian Blurton.

Mike Rokos (of Dig It Up! and Dumb Adults) and Alex Cartier (Hashed Out and Prevenge) will also be contributing special guest vocals to Trigger Effect's set.

“I looked up to Nick Babau, and Trigger Effect for a long time,” said Rokos “how they did it on their own, they were the epitome of DIY.”

“Trigger Effect is a band that taught me how to be in a band,” explained Cartier. “To be asked to sit in as one of the many, amazing, guest vocalists makes me feel super honoured and also extremely nervous, but I'm super happy that they decided to do this, it's the best possible way to send off Trigger Effect.”

Originally scheduled at Turbo Haus, the location quickly moved to Foufounes as the 300 person capacity was out of tickets in under three hours. As Trigger Effect has a long history with Foufounes, it made perfect sense to move it there for the blowout.

This is quite simply going to be a show that you can't afford to miss. It does not matter what style of music you listen to, the types of people you hang out with, none of that matters. Tonight will be the last chance to see a landmark for the city of Montreal.

“If you haven't been privy to the scene, and there is one band that you need to be a part of, it's Trigger Effect,” said Rokos. “You need to see this. This is a self made band that put on an amazing show, and this is your last chance to be part of something undeniably iconic.”

If you are unfamiliar with Trigger Effect, it's not too late. The band has released their full set list, with a subsequent download so you can learn the words, and come sing along.


Get yourself down to Foufounes (87 Ste-Catherines e.) tonight. This is an event that will go down in Montreal infamy as one of the craziest last hurrah’s ever seen, where we will say our final goodbyes, and send out these icon's the way they deserve... with blood and tears.
