In case you didn't know, it's NHL opening night and the Canadiens are at home. You can't even imagine what's going on here. There's a huge plaza in the middle of Rue Ste. Catherine with an open air concert space, which is featuring a free Kings of Leon Concert and 150 booths selling beer and booze. I mean it is absolutely bugfucking insane. I hung out with it for a while then it was just too much.

Believe me, Boston would never try this for opening night of baseball or football. You'd have a guaranteed riot with overturned and torched cars, serial sexual assaults, and mass tazerings and rubber bullets. Here, it's loud for sure, but non-violent. They can do it. We can't.
