Drake with Migos Concert

Drake stopped by the Bell Centre last night for a sold-out show and he’s back at it tonight as part of his ‘Aubrey and The Three Amigos Tour.’

The Toronto native will be performing with Offset, Quavo and Takeoff of Migos fame and you can be sure the Bell Centre will be bumping.

The Comedy Lab

The Comedy Nest is hosting their Comedy Lab tonight.

It’s a chance to check out pros and semi-pros experimenting in a research centre for new jokes. All comedians are given a common theme and they have to write an original joke about it on the spot. At the end of the show, a comedian is crowned a winner as voted by the audience.

Plus, free popcorn. Never turn down free popcorn.

When: Wednesday, September 5
Time: 8 pm – 10 pm
Where: 2313 Rue Saint Catherine (third floor of the Montreal Forum)

Shane Murphy at Honey Martin Pub 

Shane Murphy is one of the best musicians in Montreal. He’s fresh off an appearance at this year’s Jazz Fest and is performing tonight at the cozy Honey Martin Pub in NDG.

He’s silky smooth on the guitar and has a soothing and hip voice. He plays both covers and original pieces, if you’re in the mood for some tunes but Drake and the boys are too costly, Mr. Murphy is a welcomed alternative.
