Cheap Thrills Montreal

Cheap Thrills – Classic music shop

Again, one of these places I passed by so many times without noticing until a friend said “what, you don’t know Cheap Thrills?” Well, I do have an excuse, my bike path doesn’t go through that part of that street, and from the top of that street you can barely see the very last two-story building among much bigger buildings. So I went.

Open since 1971, you push the door and you are back in the 70s – or what I think so early in the 70s must have been like –  the narrow curved and crooked stairs, the handrail painted in pink, the mirror in the corner, the trays full of used books, tapes and more.

If it looks chaotic on the outside, it is organised chaos inside, as a cool music shop can be. New and used vinyls of course, a place to buy concert ticket as well, more used books and DVDs… really, it’s the place you want to visit, and re-visit, as you know you will definitely find something.
