L’Envers needs support

Having hosted over 500 shows since opening in June 2008, l’Envers is unquestionably one of Montreal’s most important artist-run venues. Founded by musicians Ellwood Epps, Philippe Battikha, Etienne Lebel and Sam Vipond as a combination living, practice and concert space, it has hosted international stars such as Sun Ra’s Marshall Allen, bassist Henry Grimes and European improvisers like Xavier Charles, Axel Dörner and Christian Wallumrød. It has also been a home to local acts like Michel F. Côté, John Heward and Nic Caloia’s Ratchet Orchestra, and has held multimedia events including CKUT’s Art’s Birthday and the Magic Soundbox.
