Keynote Presentation by Lydia Lunch Presentation, Friday, October 3, 5pm to 7pm Will be held at Main Hall, co-presented by Pop Montreal and La Centrale Galerie Powerhouse Lydia Lunch is a fucking legend. Perhaps best known as the former lead singer for Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, but she is also known for her provocative performances that have served to inspire other generations of powerful women musicians. She often engages with subject matter related to violence and sexuality. Her body of work has included various recording projects with bands such as the Birthday Party, Einstürzende Neubauten, and Sonic Youth. This No-Wave pioneer, singer, and poet will present excerpts from her recent work Ghosts of Spain, followed by an open Q&A session.

I'm a lady, I'm not a man, MC is my ambition: The Herstory of Hip Hop with Sister Nancy (reggae pioneer) Roxanne Arsenault (aka Donzelle, Montreal) Eternia (MC, Toronto) Tali (Nomadic Massive) Round-table, Saturday, October 4., 3h30 to 5pm Will be held at Green Room, co-presented by Pop Montreal and La Centrale Galerie Powerhouse If hip-hop represents a historic voice against oppression, then why are women within this culture subject to insult, hyper-sexualization, and exclusion? What are the real and creative implications of this? What role do larger socio-economic factors play? And where is the line drawn between exploitation and marketing within the music industry and media? Most importantly, this discussion will delve into the proud tradition of MCing that many women have pioneered and continue to champion.
