Nine bands you need to see at M for Montreal

M for Montreal’s seventh edition runs today and through Saturday, and although the showcases happening tonight and tomorrow night are sold out, there’s plenty to see in the afternoon and on the weekend. Here’ a list of M 2012 bands that our music team is losing bodily fluids to. Bring a change of underwear, seriously.

Today’s Sounds: Young Rival

Stay Young, the new record by Hamilton’s Young Rival, is out Oct. 23 but available now straight from the source. Also, a new Ty Segall track from an upcoming various-artists release marking the 45th anniversary of one of the most important records of all time, and a video feat. Montreal’s own A-Trak.
