Alexandre St-Onge / Michel F. Côté / Bernard Falaise / Sam Shalabi - La Vitrola - January 14th 2015












Band : Alexandre St-Onge / Michel F. Côté / Bernard Falaise / Sam Shalabi
Venue : La Vitrola
Town (country) : Montreal, QC (Canada)
Date : January 14th 2015
Grade : 3/5

Setlist :
n/a


Comments : For the last set of the evening, Alexandre and Michel were joined on stage by Sam Salabi and Bernard Falaise. I was a bit scared by the "jazzy" beginning of the show. Gladly, halfway through the performance the improvisation evolved into something less conventional, more abstrast and therefore much more enjoyable according to my personal standards.

Grade : 3/5

Comments : After a short action by Michel F Coté where many copies of his new release Botul À La Campagne were either auctioned or destroyed with an axe, he joined Alexandre for a really interesting improvised set : short and abstract.

Grade : 4/5

Setlist :
Le Sujet Modifiant Le Sujet


Comments : Tonight was the launch of Alexandre's new album called Le Sujet Modifiant Le Sujet. His short set included dry ice, water and fire and was more performance art than an actual concert. No complains about it, it was a really great and very creative performance !

Sam Shalabi & Will Eizlini - Atomic Café - January 10th 2015












Band : Sam Shalabi & Will Eizlini
Venue : Atomic Café
Town (country) : Montreal, QC (Canada)
Date : January 10th 2015
Grade : 3/5

Setlist :
n/a


Comments : A nice way to start a new year of concerts as you definitely can't go wrong with half of Shalabi Effect playing a oud/tabla set. I was also quite happy to go East and to discover a new venue outside of the Mile-End. Sadly the non stop chatter of the audience did not do justice to tonight's great set.
