City Guide
Underground City
Directly under the heart of the city, 19 miles long, the Underground City is probably the most famous aspect of shopping in Montreal. It is a web constantly growing, linking many major buildings and multi-level shopping malls in the area, and a shopper's paradise in any season.

Thousands of boutiques, major hotels, restaurants, universities, dozens of office buildings and attractions are all linked together by brightly lit, scrupulously clean passageways. The "city" is definitely the Montréal of Montrealers offering to more than 500,000 people every day a connection to work, shopping, dining or entertainment.

One major section is reached via Peel and McGill metro stations on the green line, and another via Bonaventure station on the orange line. Safe and sheltered from the elements, the Underground City offers a huge range of goods and services as well as a handy way to get from place to place without weather or traffic problems.

In September 2010, Esther (vocals / guitar) and Stephane (guitar / vocals) merged their respective artistic universes to create a dozen melancholy pop songs tinged with ambient rock: Bright September was born.

Early on, the duo performed on various stages across the city to test their compositions. The attention to acoustic guitars, powerful melodies and the haunting voice of Esther immediately seduced the audience.

Based on this experience, they included additional musicians who further enriches their music.

For a wise mix of intimate moods and pure energy look for their live shows in the city. And in the meantime … the band just released its first EP which is now available online (Amazon, Facebook, Spotify, Record Union …).

For more information on this band take a look at their myspace profile

Enjoy the music!
