Grade : 4/5

Setlist :

Comments : Although I was unfamiliar with his work I am really glad I took a chance on tonight's concert. A short set running just over 30 minutes : one long track performed in low light, very intense, very powerful and unique. A really great performance.

Weasel Walter / Peter Evans / Mary Halvorson - Sala Rossa - April 29th 2013

Venue : Sala Rossa
Town (country) : Montreal, QC (Canada)
Date : April 29th 2013
Grade : 1/5

Setlist :

n/a

Comments : I usually enjoy improvised and experimental music a lot, but I found this one a complete waste of time. The three musicians were playing at the same time on stage yet not together at all. The guitar sounded interesting, but the drummer looked like he had no clue of what he was doing. I just sat there, waiting for the shapeless performance to end.

Comments : Last time I saw a show at Café Campus was 2007 and I have no complaints about it: welcoming staff, early show over by 10:30pm and the sound was better than the last Killing Joke show at Le Cabaret. I was actually more excited to see them touring to support a "best of" album rather than a new one as I knew we were going to get a solid setlist. After 20 years or so of seeing Killing Joke in concert, I finally got to see them play Love Like Blood ! What more can one ask for ?

Comments : This show really made me happy all around ! I was really glad that last year's "final" tour was not actually the last one. I was also quite happy that Acid Mothers Temple were playing at Sala Rosa instead of Il Motore and to see Tabata Mitsuru part of the line-up again: I really enjoyed seeing them as a 5 piece band last time. Tonight was probably one of the best AMT shows I have seen: a really great one indeed with a killer version of Pink Lady Lemonade and great merch ! See you guys next year !
