Feb 2 2018, 10:36 pm

Let’s be honest; unless you have a soft spot for Valentine’s Day (ugh), there’s nothing particularly great about the depressingly dark and inhumanely cold days of February.

But if there is ever a reason to emerge from the depths of a perpetual Netflix binge and change out of your well-worn sweats, it’s for a concert.

Here are 7 Montreal concerts to check out in February.

If you’d rather swap the Super Bowl for a little goth metal performed by a band once called “the most controversial band in the universe,” hit Mtelus for a show by L.A.’s Black Veil Brides.

When: Sunday, February 4 at 6 pm
Where: Mtelus
Tickets:  Available online at $58 to $84

Machine Head
