Recap: The A.V. Club’s guide to the 8 best things we saw in Montreal last week
With its charming buildings and diverse neighborhoods, Montreal is a lovely and unique town, a little quasi-European outpost about 45 minutes from the U.S. border. Its music scene isn’t bad either, with the city hosting three major rock festivals—Pop Montreal, M For Montreal, and Osheaga—every year. This year, the fine people at Tourism Montreal were kind enough to send The A.V. Club up to one of those—Pop Montreal—plus send us on a bit of a Montreal-centric adventure, complete with lovely meals and all manner of walking tours. And though we went to Montreal a few years ago in November for M For Montreal, visiting in the late summer helped us see Montreal in a whole new way. Below are the eight best things we saw in Montreal last week, both musically and as a tourist.
