Stereo Total - La Tulipe - August 27th 2007

Band : Stereo Total
Venue : La Tulipe
Town (country) : Montreal, QC (Canada)
Date : August 27th 2007
Grade : 3/5

Setlist :

Comments : This is one of these shows you want to see, but where no one wants to come with you. If I hadn't bought my ticket in advance I would have probably stayed home that night. I waited till the last minute to get to the venue, avoiding the 3 or 4 opening bands and finaly it was worth the trip. A nice show, worth seeing.

Vive La Fête - Festival Divers Cité - August 4th 2007

Band : Vive La Fête
Venue : Festival Divers Cité
Town (country) : Montreal, QC (Canada)
Date : August 4th 2007
Grade : 3/5

Setlist :

Comments : Divers Cité is the name of the yearly "gay & lesbian" festival in Montreal. Thanks to that I managed to see Nina Hagen in a small club back a few years ago. This time Vive La Fête is playing in a big avenue outside. A stage is here, in the middle of the street where traffic has been closed. VLF is not really my kind of bands, but I have to admit I quite enjoyed those free 70 minutes of Belgium electro music.

Whilst - Casa Del Popolo - August 1st 2007

Band : Whilst
Venue : Casa Del Popolo
Town (country) : Montreal, QC (Canada)
Date : August 1st 2007
Grade : 3/5

Setlist :

Comments : Whilst is the new musical project of Fluffy & Michel (from l'Oblique). With Fluffy in the band I already had an idea of what to expect musically, and after the french pop of Pas Chic Chic, that was exactly what I needed today. A really nice show indeed.

Pas Chic Chic - Francofolies De Montreal - August 1st 2007

Band : Pas Chic Chic
Venue : Francofolies De Montreal
Town (country) : Montreal, QC (Canada)
Date : August 1st 2007
Grade : 2/5

Aude Aux Ondes
Tes Clichés Déclenchés
Se Mirer Mare
Blindé D'attentions
Mille Mille
Section Instrumentale
Briser Méprise

Vous Comprenez Pourquoi

Comments : Well, well, well... a tough one to talk about. This is the 2nd time I see Pas Chic Chic at an open-air street festival in a few weeks. I have to admit that the main reason I went to see them the first time is because Roger was a member of Fly Pan Am and Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Despite no similarities of his previous musical projects, I found it "entertaining" the first time and rather boring this time. Definitely not my kind of stuff.
