A virtual sea of people crammed into the downtown core on Wednesday night to catch the free Montreal Jazz Fest kick-off show, as part of the Sessions 375 project, presenting free shows by local artists in celebration of Montreal’s 375th anniversary.

The giant show featured Half Moon Run, The Franklin Electric, Coeur de pirate, Plants and Animals and Milk & Bone, with a late-night after-party headlined by Black Tiger Sex Machine. Below you can check out photos from the party by Eva Blue, including the fireworks that capped off Half Moon Run’s set.
