M For Montreal

Montreal is without a doubt one of the coldest inhabitable places during the North American winter. And heck, it’s still Fall, but it was freezing-ass cold when we hit the town a week ago for the third annual M For Montreal festival. Besides checking out a slew of bands, we chatted with a few locals (and a couple non-locals) to see what they dig about Montreal music (turns out a lotta folks really like Duchess Says) and how they deal with the weather.
