Battle of the Sunglasses at Night Cover Bands

Tourisme Montreal & POP Montreal will post the eight videos created by the "Battle of the Bands" contest semi-finalists. But there was an unusual twist...Each semi-finalist had to create a cover video / reinterpretation of Montréal-native Corey Hart's 80s classic "Sunglasses at Night."

Facebook votes will narrow down the competition until only two finalists remain and POP Montréal will then select and announce the winner on Wednesday, September 5. The winning band gets to play two sets of their own original music during POP Montréal International Music Festival, which takes place September 19-23, 2012.

Other musicians making their way around Montréal's Mile End this year for POP 2012 include Grimes, Purity Ring, David Byrne with St Vincent, Gotye, Change of Heart, Cadence Weapon and many more!

To view the videos and vote online (starting Aug. 26), visit the app on Montréal's Facebook page here.
