So it's November. I know, the July events seemed to breed a little more excitement and anticipation but don't judge November too quickly cause we've got pre-holiday fun, the finest in French film on schedule, and you'll be pleased to know there are still a few events and shopping locations devoid of Christmas jingles. For now.
Montreal concerts this November 2012 feature a who's who of vintage, big ticket rock, from Neil Young to Bob Dylan to Journey to Pat Benatar to even The Who.

From a freakishly summer-esque day to a bone-chilling arctic experience, anything can happen in Montreal in November. But it's not as bad as it sounds.

And bring out those gloves and scarves. You'll need them.
