M is For Montreal Showcase at CMJ, 24 October 2014, NYC


Photo Gallery from the M is for Montreal showcase at Arlene’s Grocery during the CMJ Music Marathon in New York City on Friday, 24 October 2014.

Though I did not partake in the poutin, I did partake in the performance.  I was only able to stay for a few sets though.

Energy, wit, talent…Lisa LeBlanc.  The banjo-wielding songstress and crew performed with the enthusiasm you wished all bands would.  Fast-paced and fun in pair of cowboy boots, is the only way to describe LeBlanc’s performance.  I loved the exaggeraated Frenglish accent, a bit self-deprecating, but hilarious as well.

Duo Solids were loud and louder.  I’m not sure if I was into the music, but the drumming was hypnotic to watch.  When the guys did harmonize, it was pretty beautiful.  Yes, beautiful!

Opening up for the night was Heat.
