Comments : And now for something different. I went to the show by accident after Madame played one of her records at home. Am I glad I went! A very nice show split in 2 sets, although the 30 minutes break in between felt a tad long. The acoustic duo managed to put more ambiance and energy in the sold out theatre than the wall of amps in last night's show (Boris). A very enjoyable performance for me. The duo seemed really happy to be playing Montreal for the first time and truly touched by the crowd's roaring reception. They played for almost 2 hours and came back for 3 encores, including a cover of Johnny Cash's "Jackson".
