Michael Gira - Sala Rossa - May 5th 2007











Band : Michael Gira
Venue : Sala Rossa
Town (country) : Montreal, QC (Canada)
Date : May 5th 2007
Grade : 5/5

Setlist :
n/a

Comments : With The Swans being one of the best bands I have seen live, and with Michale Gira being one of my favorite artists for a long time, that was definitely a show I was really excited about. The promoter had the brillian idea to make a double bill with Daniel Johnston that night. Daniel Johnston being the "cool" thing to see at the moment, I almost did not get a ticket and the venue was sold out. After suffering an extremely bad opening act by Brian Seeger, Michael Gira's show was brilliant. Much more powerful than list time I had seen with Akron Family as Angels Of Light. I remember that kid who asked Michael at the end of the show what his name was and Michael answered that his name was Joseph Stalin...

Band : The Psychic Paramount

Date : May 1st 2007
Grade : 3/5

Setlist :

Comments : It looks like I am starting a habit to go to see shows for the opening act. I had no real interest to see Trans Am, but I was quite excited to see Psychic Paramount again after the memorable show they gave in Lyon a few years back. Tonight they played a quite nice set, although much less chaotic.
