Comments : Another Cloudscapes show at Le Cagibi. Well, it has been over a year since Etienne last played here, but I really think his music fits perfectly with the venue. The beginning of his set made me think of the movie 2001. Really enjoyable as usual.

Date : August 5th 2011
Grade : 3/5

Setlist :

All Women Are Crazy

When You're Evil

Comments : Once again, there is a weird organisation in Fantasia festival: people who bought their tickets in advance had to wait in line outside while people without tickets could go straight in. Go figure. Anyways I still managed to make my way up front for my goth evening of the year (I was probably the only one wearing shorts here). The evening started with a 45-minute introduction by Voltaire, followed by a projection of his animated shorts for maybe 15 minutes total (including the world premiere of Odokuro, narrated by Gary Numan). It ended with a 75-minute live performance. The animated shorts (most of them being ads for MTV and Sci-Fi Channel) did not really impress me, although I quite enjoyed the musical performance.
