Indie Guides Montreal (Free)
Montreal loves art and its artists love it right back. You’ll find more musicians and performers per mile here than in many other big cities. Creativity is everywhere: not only in the cafés and performance spaces, the self-owned and managed galleries, the party lofts and warehouse events, but also in the many bars, boutiques, and restaurants run by artists here.
