Club Report: New City Gas (Montreal)

Tomorrow on the Blog we'll have the latest pics from Pleasure Island but for today we have one last club report from Montreal. Ended my clubbing in the YUL at New City Gas.
This projection on the club building is what you see on approach!
Alternating with this one for this past weekend's Prodktworld EDM festival!
Upstairs in the main club resident DJ Stefagostino (CDN) had already started when I arrived.
And the crowd was already beginning to populate this huge room that reminded me a lot of Sound Academy in Toronto where I saw Above & Beyond (GB) last year.
Much younger crowd overall than other Montreal venues visited this weekend. The drinking age in Quebec is 18.
He began his set with Downtempo but as he played on and the floor filled-up, he became progressively faster and louder!
He opened last month for Benny Benassi (I) at Marquee in Las Vegas; this night he was opening for DJ Dyro (NL) who would come on at 1:30AM!
At the other room in this huge venue, arrived in time to see the opening DJ switch over to the headliner!
DJ Mark Knight (GB) taking over at midnight!
The section, called the DSTRiKT is outdoors and mostly uncovered!
Delivering a House / Tech House set!
Much smaller than the main room upstairs, it was just as crowded on a per square meter basis!
Had seen Mark Knight play at Tier Nightclub in Orlando this past April!
Dancing on the landing!
I threw-in the towel relatively early though as I was EDM'd out!  An amazing time in Montreal which I have to highly recommend to you as a weekend getaway.  Allegiant Air flies nonstop from Orlando Sanford International to Plattsburgh International with many bargain fares available and it's only an hour drive from there.  Passport required.  A good time was had by all!
