Under Pressure Festival, Montreal remembers Sharon Mount-Real w/ DJ Bobbito

Shout out to the crew at Under Pressure for the dedication this year to Sharon, an incredible supporter of music and arts in the city, who passed too early last December 2014.  Sharon's record shop, Noize, on Saint Laurent Blvd, hosted a few of original Heavyweight's early grassroots events. Through her exhibition and event space, The Nest, she supported the launch of HVW8's pop-up installation gallery concept, originating in Montreal, by hosting the HVW8 Art Installation's Political Minded II, "May You Live in Interesting Times" in 2003, as well as the Marques Wyatt/Fred Everything fundraiser event in Montreal where the "Tiger" artwork (created live by Gene Starship & DSTRBO), was produced, later to be featured in the Gravis Footwear Artist series in 2006.

Her dedication to artists brought many together over the years, her passing a tremendous loss for the Montreal family.
