- Western Canada
not being a fan I can't vouch for those scenes however Montreal never did have many venues for local bands to play in. Perhaps a few on St. Lawrence Blvd and Foufones Electric.
Have things changed that much?
I'm not sure of your age... but in my earlier touring days (the 80's) I remember the downtown core was happening. You could catch many bands within walking distance. I played two rooms in those days... the Moustache (near the old Forum), and another that I believe was called "The Maples". It was just past the airport, and close to the water. There was no shortage of fun in that room.
Of course, I don't expect any of those rooms to still exist, and if they did I doubt they're the same as they were. I just remember a time when live music appeared to be alive and well in Montreal.
