For nearly 2 decades, Montreal's Cabaret Underworld as hosted some of the city's most intimate and exhilarating shows. The venue has hosted everyone from hometown heroes like Kaytranada and Tommy Kruise to worldwide legends like members of the Wu-Tang Clan and even a then unknown Blink-182 back in 1996: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gc_6q-u8BpE

The venue also holds an especially big place in my heart, as it is where I conducted my very first Mr. Wavvy interview in September 2013 with Jurassic 5's Chali 2na:

Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. Earlier this week, Cabaret Underworld left this post on their Facebook page:

No word as to who will take ownership of the legendary venue, we can only hope it's someone with just as much good intentions to provide epic shows to the city of Montreal. Thanks to the Underworld team for everything they have done for us, we highly appreciate it.
