Pop d'Époque: Ohara + Hua Li @ Société des arts technologiques

PARTY LIKE IT'S 1699, BUT IN THE FUTURE OF ITS PAST!

OHara and Hua Li at the SATosphere for Le Pop D'époque's Party Like It's 1699, and M for Montreal, November 19th, 2014

This night was a full sensory experience. If you have never been to the dome at the SAT, that is step one in the sensory immersion. It is as it sounds, a giant domed room at the top of the SAT building. It is outfitted by teams of projectors and a top notch surround sound system. This performance utilized every inch of the space, in an almost overwhelming, yet fully-engaging feast at every level.


What's Happening?

We Just Wanna Have Some Fun, Down at the Rock and Roll Club

For the past 10 years, Prince Palu and his trusted comrade Oncle Ian have been trying to steer people towards the shows that they thought would enrich the soul and shake the booty. Some listened, some didn't know they were talking. Then someone told Prince Palu that the pen was mightier than the sword, so he decided to write down these suggestions and voilà! 'What's Happening?' was born. Obviously these are not all of the shows happening, but hopefully it will be a solid listing that will either keep you from missing a band you love or help you discover a new band to love.


Anamai Live @ CJLO

Anamai dropped by The Oven Studio @ CJLO 1690AM to play an intimate set with some of her Toronto pals who were also in town for Pop Montreal Festival. Performing with Anamai was David (AKA Egyptrixx), and Allie of DOOMSQUAD. Despite two thirds of the band being under the weather and having already played and/or anticipating playing over 4 different gigs and parties, all within a day or two, they pulled off a beautiful set with ease.

With each passing year Expozine seems to grow and grow, fuelled by the unending enthusiasm of both artists and patrons.

Lisa LeBlanc - Highways, Heartaches and Time Well Wasted

Highways, Heartaches and Time Well Wasted is the newest release by musician Lisa LeBlanc. According to LeBlanc, this six track EP was inspired by her travels through the U.S. in the beat generation tradition. It consists of five original tracks and her take on the American folk song "Katie Cruel". This EP surges ahead with a raw and at times grungy musical aesthetic, which is propelled by Lisa's powerful and pleading vocals.
