GOTYE: AMBIANCE FESTIVE À MONTRÉAL!

GOTYE: AMBIANCE FESTIVE À MONTRÉAL!

| September 22, 2012 | Comments (249)

Le métropolis de Montréal accueillait ce soir Zammuto, le groupe pop-électro Chairlift, ainsi que l’auteur-compositeur-interprète et musicien Gotye et ses quatre musiciens. Dès le départ, j’ai été agréablement surprise de constater la polyvalence des musiciens, dont Gotye qui sait non seulement utiliser sa voix à merveille, mais qui sait également faire une multitude de percussions [...]

HOT WATER MUSIC, THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM, AND RISE AGAINST: PUNK’S NOT DEAD YET

On Wednesday night, the Bell Centre played host to three beloved punk bands of our generation – Hot Water Music, The Gaslight Anthem, and Rise Against. Hot Water Music opened the show, with a high energy performance; although because the stadium was not even at half capacity, the sound was lacking, making it very difficult [...]

Cali punk rockers The Offspring have been on tour promoting their new album “Days Go By” which came out in June.

It was a [...]

I caught up with Classified just before his set at Osheaga.  He was bringing around a new artist that he’s been working with for the past little while, Kayo.  A fellow East Coaster (I’m from Newfoundland), Classified was super easy to talk to and so was Kayo.  Check out the interview below, and keep an [...]

I met with Tim D’Eon, who plays both guitars and keyboards for Wintersleep, during the Osheaga Festival.  The band has just released their new album, Hello Hum in June, and it’s been receiving top notch reviews.  I met with Tim just after half the band played a short acoustic set where they were busking for [...]

Day two of Heavy MTL was just as excellent as day one, but this time, with sun!  After the rain on Saturday, it was nice to get a bit of sun on Sunday.  The Jagermeister stage and the Heavy MTL stage switched places, which was probably nice for the people who paid extra for bleacher [...]

    My second weekend in a row spent in Parc Jean Drapeau was for Heavy MTL.  A vast departure from my previous weekend, spent at Osheaga, it was still a very pleasant weekend.  Even though pleasant is the least metal word that I could use to describe a weekend of metal.  This weekend, the [...]

Osheaga kicked off its second day of the 2012 festival with temperatures even hotter than on Friday (if possible)!  Saturday was not sold out at the beginning of the day, so the crowds were a lot less when I first arrived for Portugal, the Man on Virgin Mobile’s River Stage.  These guys played a wild [...]

I knew before my arrival to Jean Drapeau Park for Osheaga 2012, it was going to be a crazy time.  Everyone I knew was talking about it, and it was pretty easy to see the Montreal’s population density slowly increase from all the out-of-towners coming in for the weekend.  With one of the largest lineups [...]

During a hot summer sunday night in beautiful Montreal, United Kingdom trio The xx stopped by for a quick visit to a sold-out crowd at the Metropolis. People there were highly excited to hear this very humble performance for a straight ahead 70 minutes playing sixteeen songs. The entire show contained six new songs from [...]
