The fall concert schedule in Montreal is always dense, as many artists hit the road in advance of the holidays and hibernation, and this year is no exception.

Hungry music gourmandizers, therefore, will want to take note that Prince, The Wailers, Jay-Z & Kanye, Feist, Judas Priest, Bon Iver, the New York Philharmonic and many more represent the best of what’s left in 2011…
