Had the chance to see some great shows this week/weekend.
Wednesday night at Casa Del Popollo was Share, Lost in the Trees, and amazing talanted singer Conor O'Brien of Villagers.
Share apparently changes their performers often when playing live shows giving it an exciting new sound each time. I am very excited to check out their duo sound of Coco et Co! Lost in Trees performance was...wow! Think Arcade Fire meets classical orchestra. Each member, extremely talented playing more than one instrument (accordian, violin, cello, tuba, bass, etc...) adding a classical turn to an indie sound. Conor J. O'Brien's acoustic sounds was both eerie and entrancing. The Irish native came to Montreal sans band and still managed to blow the crowd away!
Friday night consisted of Zola Jesus, Warpaint and The XX. All three bands amazing in their own way. The gothic-rock sound of Zola Jesus, the girl punkrock band of Warpaint and the 90's electronic and mellow sound of The XX made for an incredible experience.
