Thankfully, because Pop Montreal shows are usually punctual, the fest pocket guide is fairly accurate, and the all-new Pop app updates on the fly, show hopping is easy! Really! Maybe!

CONCERTS IN MONTREAL: JUNE

The arrival of June means that very soon most of the music in Montreal will come in festival form. But that doesn’t meant that the month of June doesn’t boast some great stand-alone concerts.

And if last year’s sold out show was any indication of the potential that Misstress Barbara has to rock out sans “hiding-in-a-DJ-booth,” then we have much to look forward to this second time through.
