Hi My Quiet Tsar - Le Cagibi - December 29th 2011











Band : Hi My Quiet Tsar
Venue : Le Cagibi
Town (country) : Montreal, QC (Canada)
Date : December 29th 2011
Grade : 3/5

Setlist :
n/a

Comments : It has been a while since I heard a synth set by Eric and there couldn't have been a better way to conclude both this year of concerts and this evening amongst friends. Again, the soundboard took away from fully appreciating the improvised set, which seemed a bit longer than the others.

Alexandre St-Onge - Le Cagibi - December 29th 2011











Band : Alexandre St-Onge
Venue : Le Cagibi
Town (country) : Montreal, QC (Canada)
Date : December 29th 2011
Grade : 3/5

Setlist :
n/a

Comments : A true avant-garde set. I kind of preferred the first part of the show to the second one, but I am probably being a bit picky here. Extremely enjoyable as usual.

Cloudscapes - Le Cagibi - December 29th 2011











Band : Cloudscapes
Venue : Le Cagibi
Town (country) : Montreal, QC (Canada)
Date : December 29th 2011
Grade : 3/5

Setlist :
n/a

Comments : A really good one by Etienne, with a cool video this time ! I really enjoyed his show despite the really annoying sound glitches coming from Le Cagibi’s dying soundboard. (I really wish they would invest in a new one for 2012.) I hope to hear the material performed tonight soon on a much better sound system. It certainly deserves it!

Exhaust - Casa Del Popolo - December 16th 2011











Band : Exhaust
Venue : Casa Del Popolo
Town (country) : Montreal, QC (Canada)
Date : December 16th 2011
Grade : 4/5

Setlist :
n/a

Comments : The Casa was packed when Exhaust started their show. A really nice set by one of my long-time favourite bands off Constellation Records. Tonight was the release party of their first album since 2002, although not on Constellation... A great general atmosphere and a great evening ! I know they don't play often, but I hope to see them again soon. For those who didn’t make it tonight, you missed a great show.

Comments : Another very nice show by Eric, as expected. A good setlist, including my all-time favourite "Warchitects". Maybe a little bit too long towards the end, but still really enjoyable.
