The 26-year-old English singer-songwriter is at the Bell Centre today. He’s on tour promoting his newest album The Thrill of It All and he’s sure to play a few of his classics as well. Tickets are a bit pricey but come on, it’s Sam Smith.
When: Monday, June 19
Time: 7 pm – 11 pm
Where: Centre Bell, 1909 Avenue des Canadiens de Montreal
Price: $63.50 – $149.75, available online
Cafe Shaika hosts the “Shaika Shakeup” every Tuesday in the summer. The Shakeup is an open mic comedy show that features up and coming comedians and seasoned vets working on new bits or old jokes.

Plus they have carrot cake.

Mad Hatters is hosting a Batman-themed quiz night. From Adam West to Kevin Conroy, Ben Affleck to Christian Bale and who knows, maybe even George Clooney. Head to Mad Hatters and see if you know Alfred’s last name.
