Buffy Saint-Marie @ Corona Theatre, Feb 16 2019

It’s very seldom that you see a performer arrive to more admiration and praise than 77 year-old singer-songwriter Buffy Sainte-Marie received last week at Corona Theatre. While the show was not quite sold out, the energy in the room could have filled a football field. This concert showed that even though Buffy has been touring for half a century, she can still be trusted to put on a great show.

On February 7, Andy Shauf brought his month long North American tour to Montreal’s Rialto Theatre. That Thursday night saw a brief respite from the bitter winter, with temperatures creeping above zero for what felt like the first time in ages.

When listening to Histoire naturelle, the excellent debut album by Jonathan Personne, alias of Corridor singer and guitarist Jonathan Robert, one gets a sense that the breezy project was composed in a matter of days, such is the cohesiveness of the project.

Every weekend in Montreal is filled with plenty of opportunities to experience music, art, film, and theatre, as well as just a good time. At CJLO, we want to help you find the best events in town, and perhaps introduce you to some new artists or venues. So, here is a list of events happening this coming weekend, February 15-17, to get you excited and give you some ideas.


Dan Mangan at Fairmount Theatre, Jan 28 2019

Outside the venue, a large tour bus with a trailer is parked on the street. It’s unusual to see one outside of Fairmount Theatre. Dan Mangan doesn’t strike one as a tour bus artist. The indie rock outfit doesn’t seem like it would need much. I guess after a decade and a half in the business, one might splurge for extra comforts.

“You guys are ready to fucking yee-haw!”

It wasn’t a lie when Kacey Musgraves made that exclamation near the beginning of her show at MTELUS over the weekend.  Despite bitter-cold temperatures (a situation Musgraves also colourfully expressed concern and sympathy over), it couldn’t keep down the palpable excitement of an audience hungry to hear their country queen.
