Once again, Montreal's music scene delivers throughout the whole month of March. From newer bands just breaking out to classic faves, the city has got your covered.

Miley Cyrus

Date: March 29th

Place: Bell Center

Genre: Pop?

Why you're going to the show: .....we've all heard the stories and seen the pictures. Now, Montreal, we get to see Miley in all her glory; riding a giant hot dog, imitating sexual acts on stage, barely wearing any clothes and, of course, singing our favorite songs. Parents all over the world are outraged over her new tour which, let's be honest, just makes you want to see it even more.

Riff Raff

Date: March 6th

Place: Cabaret Underworld

Genre: Hip Hop

Why you're going to the show: If you know who Riff Raff is, then you know you're going to this show. If you don't know who he is, then we're here to tell you that you need to be at this show. Cornrows, tattoos (including the BET and MTV logos), weirdly catchy songs - it's hard to tell if Riff Raff takes himself seriously. His live shows usually tread the line between exciting and slightly off-putting; why wouldn't you go see it?

Hedley

Date: March 28th

Place: Bell Center

Genre: Pop-Rock

Why you're going to the show: It's Hedley - we all know and love them. Their latest album, Wild Life, blew us away once again and their show will not disappoint. High energy, amazing sound, and just so much fun - get your tickets before they sell out!

Borgore + Cazzette

Date: March 8th

Place: New City Gas

Genre: Dubstep/Electronica

Why you're going to the show: Borgore, often billed alongside Skrillex and Calvin Harris, belongs to that group of DJs who made dubstep an arena sound. Head-banging, eardrum-blasting sets, intermixed with his hilarious rapping, Borgore takes the genre to a whole new, unexplored territory. Cazzette, the Swedish duo (seriously, Sweden is ace at cheap furniture and house DJs - not so good at hockey), are making huge waves ever since they remixed our beloved "Sweet Dreams" a few years ago. With the support of huge names like Tiesto and David Guetta, we have no doubt that Cazzette's will continue to grow.

Cheap Trick

Date: March 15th

Place: Metropolis

Genre: Rock

Why you're going to the show: Nostalgia is awesome, which is why this is a must-see show. Just watching them perform "I Want You To Want Me" live is reason enough to go but beyond that, they're classic. They've been making music together for decades and  age has only made their art more refined.

The Strypes

Date: March 21st

Place: La Sala Rossa

Genre: Rock and Roll, Blues

Why you're going to the show: The Strypes are young - between 16 and 18 years old - but they seriously know how to rock. Originally from a small town in Ireland, they've been steadily building a fan base that consists of, surprisingly for their age, a more mature crowd - you won't find any preteen screaming fan girls at their shows. These guys are crazy-skilled on their instruments, always suited up and ready to have a good time.

The Neighbourhood

Date: March 21st

Place: Metropolis

Genre: Alternative Rock

Why you're going to the show: Another young band, The Neighbourhood is currently enjoying the success of their debut album I Love You. They appeared on the internet quietly a few years ago and we still don't know too much about them, besides the fact that we love their sound. An interesting mix of rock instruments with a hip hop sound, their songs are often dark and very emotionally-charged. Their popularity is just going to keep growing and we want to be a part of it from the beginning.

Young the Giant

Date: March 6th

Place: Metropolis

Genre: Indie Rock

Why you're going to the show: On stage, Young the Giant's presence is modest and makes the audience feel as though they're watching a few friends jam together. They're true musicians; you can clearly see the passion that they have for their art while they perform. Don't be surprised if they play something new or cover a familiar song during their show - they've always had a knack for delivering a unique performance to every audience.

Imagine Dragons

Date: March 3rd

Place: Bell Centre

Genre: Alternative Rock

Why you're going to the show: Imagine Dragons have quietly crept up on us in the last little while and we're so grateful. Their track "Radioactive" recently broke a Billboard record after entering its 77th week on the Hot 100 list - you know you can't turn the radio on without hearing it. Their shows are often chock-full of emotion and the band's electrifying energy will keep you on your feet all night.
