 I have been reading through the numerous Montreal threads, and am now looking for special events happening during the week of my visit. I am especially looking for good concerts to check out (local bands or otherwise) in addition to the Jazz Fest which will be wrapping up that weekend. Pretty much any genre is up for grabs (especially indie rock, folk, hip hop). I follow Saidthegramophone, and am always jealous of the great shows he describes going to. Also, who else has good event listings besides Cult Montreal?
 What are the best bars in the city? Upscale or dive, doesn't matter, but bonus points for great cocktails or dance parties. I will be staying a bit north of McGill if that helps narrow things down.
 Speaking of, I would also love any recommendations for cafes or brunch places in the Plateau.
