While December boasts far fewer shows than the rest of the year, it makes up for it for the quality of the acts coming into town. This month sees the return of Death From Above 1979 on Montreal soil (no, that gig in Laval doesn’t count) and the fabulous Cold Specks play an intimate show at La Sala Rossa. Time to get your Music Fix for December!
