This year I was very excited to be taking part in my first ever Nuit Blanche celebrations. I know I’m more than a little late to the game, but better late then never right? Of course we all know when you’re with a large group of people, especially a group with an anarchist spirit like Forget the Box, plans of where and what you’re going to do never quite works out the way you wanted it to. But I had a lovely evening none the less, and who’s to say we don’t all need a little more spontaneity in our lives?

So that’s why this Saturday FTBers will be out in full force all night long (which honestly isn’t that much of a stretch for most of us) reporting on the annual Nuit Blanche, aka the closing night of the Montreal en Lumiere festival. Beginning in Paris in 1984 the idea of turning a city into an all night art gallery has since spread to 34 cities, Montreal being one of three in Canada…

So much going on, so much to do, what’s a boy to do? Well here are some suggestions. There’s a lot going on in Montreal this evening a lot of big things. It’s Nuit Blanche, as well as the MONTRÉAL EN LUMIÈRE festival, Smoke N’ Mirrors, The 13TH FLOOR with Daniel Bell, the WAWA show… and the list goes on. Every year I try to go out and check out some of the most exciting & interesting…
