As POP Montreal stretches the definition of pop to its outer limits (not to mention the Jazz Fest’s approach to jazz, haha), Distorsion Psych Fest presents a broad spectrum of psychedelic sounds, from shoegaze to post-punk to experimental dance music to garage rock. This year’s roster includes exceptional local bands like Suuns, Crabe, Elephant Stone, Petra Glynt, Bleu Nuit and les Breastfeeders, with a handful of acts from the U.S., Mexico and the ROC. Tonight’s opening events include a vernissage and a show by Elephant Stone. Various locations, four-day passes $55 or $200 (special package)
