As some of you know, one of my favorite hobbies is to go to shows.
If there's live music, count me in. (ok, I don't like heavy metal too much though...)
I'm totally looking forward to Spring and Summer in Montreal, since so many shows from bands that I like have been announced. I'm planning to post here about the shows that I attend. I've already started with my Black Lips review, now is the time to talk about the Toro y Moi show that I checked out a few days ago at Sala Rossa.
Chazwick Bundick was in town to support his sophomore relase, "Underneath the Pine" - which I only had time to listen to briefly so far.
I must say that the show was rather short, with minimal interaction with the crowd. I guess Mr. Bundick and his band consider themselves to be musicians rather than showmen. Overall, I just believe that this type of music is not the most suitable for the live format, I'd rather listen to it at home. I don't regret going to the show, I had a good time for a mere 14$... but let's just say that I would not classify this in my most memorable concert moments.
Here's the video for "Talamak" from Toro y Moi's debut "Causers of This". I really like that record's title track as well, but there's not video for it unfortunately.
