POP Montreal is very happy to be working with Win Butler of the Arcade Fire and Dexter John of DJ Sports Club to bring you the first annual Pop vs Jock Charity Basketball Game. All proceeds from this game will go towards DJ Sports Club, a non-profit charity organization in Montreal’s South-West borough that offers programs in sports and education to youth between 7 and 17 years of age.

The game will feature the ferocious Butler brothers leading a team of musicians (team POP) against an all-star team comprised of standout players from the current and graduate McGill Redman and Concordia Stingers (team JOCK). Guests will include NBA veteran Matt Bonner of the San Antonio Spurs and Chris Tomson of Vampire Weekend, as well as many other surprise appearances.

Régine Chassagne will be playing the organ to keep the festive spirit alive and the half time show will feature performances by Kid Koala, along with a world premiere bicycle symphony called DRONES composed by Richard Reed Parry of the Arcade Fire. For tickets and more information, go to popmontreal.com or the McGill Sports Centre information desk.
