M for Montreal was born in 2006. Martin Elbourne (Glastonbury and The Great Escape festivals, UK) suggested to Avalanche Productions that they create a big event in Montreal for European festival bookers, international bookers, journalists and other influential members of the music industry.

The M for Montreal 3rd edition happened this year from November 20th to 22nd. The organizers selected 21 bands - 16 from Montreal, 5 from Toronto -, the most export-ready acts from the area and showcased them over three nights at four venues in the heart : the Cabaret & Studio Just for Laughs and Foufounes Électriques, it will feature a big closing event at the Metropolis.

During each of the three nights, bands played in alternating sets of 25 minutes. International delegates and public move back and forth from venue to venue to witness the talent. No two bands play at once, and the size of the event ensures that all bands are seen by everyone.

I interviewed few bands that impressed me the most from the festival. Part 1 consists of two Montreal bands: We Are Wolves and Winter Gloves
