Dodos / Braids @ Pop Montreal 9/26/2013

Pop Montreal Day 2

With the first day of POP Montreal always being a lighter day, Thursday (9/26) started things rolling toward the weekend and busier schedules with way too much to see in way too many parts of the city.

I freed up the early part of my evening by jumping at the chance to photograph the Patrick Watson and Braids soundchecks at L'Olympia ahead of their live broadcast performances and interviews with Jian Ghomeshi later that night for Q music. The restrictions for shooting the actual broadcast left little opportunity to get anything decent so, having shot both bands before, I found myself at a very empty O'Lympia in the middle of the afternoon.

After a brief stop at the POP Quarters for the media mixer it was off to the Montreal Museum of Contemporary Art to see Suuns who I had last seen open for The Antlers at Webster Hall a couple years back. The sold out show featured projections of the band in duplicate. It took a song or so to realize that what we were watching wasn't live video but previously recorded live takes that were synced with each song and slightly off. The band sounded great and the extended back end of "Edie's Dream" was pulsingly hypnotic.

I left after that and made my way up Saint Laurent to catch The Dodos at Sala Rossa. When I arrived the venue was already on a one in, one out policy as Cousins finished up their set. The Dodos played a bunch of songs from their new album, Carrier, as well as a few older songs. The house lights came up after the first encore but with the crowd shouting for one more song the band obliged. "When you put it like that," said drummer Logan Kroeber, before the band launched into "The Season" to close out the set.

I also caught Viet Cong, the new band from some of the members of the defunct Women, and more on that soon. Pics from Day 1 are here. More pics from Day 2 below...

I wish I was there. As a canadian K-pop fan, it's very rare to see a kpop concert in our country, particularly in Quebec. Hope this concert will bring more K-pop artists here ♥
