Montreal Must-See Shows To Kick Off November 2013

Missing these shows would be a crime.
Montreal Must-See Shows To Kick Off November 2013

Every week in Montreal there are dozens of musicians making their way through, waiting to play their tunes to eager fans in the city. There's never a shortage of new bands to discover & great acts to check out every night! This week though? Our city is going all out.

Check out the picks for the week right this way >

1. You Won’t

Date: November 5th

Place: Le Divan Orange

Genre: They have yet to really classify themselves, but they've shared a stage with The Lumineers, The Joy Formidable, and Josh Ritter just to name a few.

Why you're going to the show: They have a reputation for very dynamic and unorthodox shows that have not only gotten them opening spots with the big names mentioned above, but kudos from SPIN, NPR, and The New York Times.

Listen to ‘Ten Years Old’

Tickets: Presented by Evenko

2. Jessie Ware

Date: November 5th

Place: Virgin Mobile Corona Theatre

Genre: Electro/RnB

Why you're going to the show: This girl may be known as a rising pop star with great hair, but she's also got a voice that somehow mixes Whitney Houston, Sade, and British electronic music. And it works!

Listen to ‘Wildest Moments’

Tickets: Presented by Evenko

3.  Shad

Date: November 6th

Place: Virgin Mobile Corona Theatre

Genre: hip-hop

Why you're going to the show: Besides the fact that he has two killer opening acts (Hannah Georgas/We Are The City) this guy knows how to make hip-hop music fun. You'll be dancing your Wednesday night away to Shad's quick witted lyrics!

Listen to ‘Stylin (featuring Saukrates)’

4. Twin Forks

Date: November 7th

Place: Cabaret du Mile-End

Genre: Acoustic/Indie/Pop

Why you're going to the show: If you're like me, half the reason is because you used to scream the lyrics to Dashboard Confessional in the shower as a teenager, and you're really excited Chris Carraba is back with something new. Also, Twin Forks has managed to cross the emo music you've always loved with pop beats you just can't shake!

Listen to 'Cross My Mind'
