The Residents - Club Soda - March 29th 2011











Band : The Residents
Venue : Club Soda
Town (country) : Montreal, QC (Canada)
Date : March 29th 2010
Grade : 4/5

Setlist :
n/a

Comments : One of last year's highlights, so I was extremely excited to see The Residents again, even if it meant going to the infamous Club Soda (yes, you should all know by now how much I dislike that venue). They performed the Talking Light show again. Surprisingly, tonight was way less crowded than last year and the audience much less attentive. A pretty nice show as expected, but it did not amaze me as it did last year.

Band : Rei Rea
Venue : Piranha Bar
Town (country) : Montreal, QC (Canada)
Date : March 25th 2011
Grade : 3/5

Setlist :
n/a

Comments : It was already late when Rei Rea (once again as a duo with Martin Bahl) started their set in the odd setting of le Piranha Bar (don't ask...). Their set was very interesting once again, and also very different than their last collaboration at Le Cagibi. An enjoyable evening!

Alexandre St-Onge / Alex MacSween - Le Cagibi - March 8th 2011












Band : Alexandre St-Onge / Alex MacSween
Venue : Le Cagibi
Town (country) : Montreal, QC (Canada)
Date : March 8th 2011
Grade : 3/5

Setlist :
n/a

Comments : There is one thing about free improvisation shows : it can either be very interesting or very boring. Tonight was a very interesting one. I heard after the show that Alexandre had already collaborated quite a lot with Alex, so maybe this explains the seamless set we got. Glad I went.

Comments : Release party for their split album. I hadn't seen them play in a long while, their December show in Paris having been cancelled due to venue shutdown. A very different set than their previous concerts and very different musically from their newly released material. A really great show.
