Pacha - Casa Del Popolo - February 22nd 2013












Band : Pacha
Venue : Casa Del Popolo
Town (country) : Montreal, QC (Canada)
Date : February 22nd 2013
Grade : 3/5

Setlist :

n/a

Comments : I own a copy of Pacha's album on Constellation as part of the Musique Fragile Vol 2 boxed set. (I must confess I only purchased a copy for the Hangedup & Tony Conrad collaboration). I have never played the record or really listened to Pacha before tonight, but it was interesting to see the band live. The show was good and quite varied, perhaps a tad long. I was surprised to see the sold out sign on the door. Maybe it is time to listen to the record ?

Matmos - Il Motore - February 13th 2013












Band : Matmos
Venue : Il Motore
Town (country) : Montreal, QC (Canada)
Date : February 13th 2013
Grade : 3/5

Setlist :

n/a

Comments : Last time I saw Matmos back in 2001, they were opening for Bjork, but I have not really kept up with their discography since. I was expecting something more abstract and experimental tonight but I had a good time and the first couple of tracks (Very Large Green Triangles and the cover of the Buzzcock's ESP) were actually pretty good.
