Cultural activities: what to do this weekend

Here are some suggestions for cultural activities to do this weekend.

The first event scheduled at the Videotron Center to suffer the repercussions of COVID-19 in March 2020, the return to Quebec City of Pearl Jam will finally materialize on September 1. Pearl Jam being Pearl Jam, the musical menu promises to be extensive. For the impatient, it requires an aperitif. Luckily, Amazon Prime has for some time hosted a recording of a concert given by the group at Seattle's Safeco Field in 2018: more than thirty titles, mixing classic Pearl Jam songs with inspired covers, for three hours of music. The best preparation there is before finding them in the flesh.

After a few years of White Card Evenings, the Just for Laughs festival has decided to bring back its good old galas for its 40th edition. To end the round of galas this evening, at the Théâtre Maisonneuve, we have entrusted the animation to Rosalie Vaillancourt. The comedian will be a bit in his slippers, she who had already hosted her first Just for Laughs galas last year. Newly mother, Rosalie will be accompanied by four other animators on stage: Anne-Marie Cadieux, Élise Guilbault, Maude Landry and Suzie Bouchard. Among the guests of the two galas are Katherine Levac, Adib Alkhalidey, Guillaume Wagner and Les Pic-Bois.

► Where: Théâtre Maisonneuve, tonight at 6 p.m. and 9 p.m.

Written in I and in a language reminiscent of that of one of her avowed favorite authors, Michel Tremblay, Mélanie Michaud offers a first work that we understand very personal and that touches the heart. By the cruelly frank reflections of its young heroine in particular, living in a very lucid way in poverty and violence. A little Mélanie who steals the books that are refused to her at home, sleeps with a blade under her pillow, likes to invent a loving family and no longer knows how to be accepted. If the theme may seem dark, it happens not to be in this semi-comic semi-bitter novel, whose short chapters invite you to read everything in one go. A touching, funny and moving read, born in the filthy alleys of the Burgundy district of the 1980s.
