Music Scene?

I have to say that the music scene in this city is as bad as it has ever been. Terrible really. I am not interested in listening to some pretentious indy jam band do "originals" nor am I interested in going to downtown bars to hear another crappy cover band play Brown Eyed Girl or Sweet Caroline. I was in Montreal in August and in one night, saw a great jazz 3 piece, an alt-country band (doing a great combo of originals and covers), and a cover band rousing the crowd with everything from Mumford and Sons to Bon Jovi. Oh, and lets look at some of the upcoming concerts, the Irish Rovers and Chicago. Really??? I blame mostly the bar owners who take zero chances on anything different. Same musicians at the same venues every weekend. Pathetic —Need Good Music Variety
