Leif Vollebekk @ Rialto Rooftop - POP Montreal 2016

There are scores of shows at POP Montreal, more rare are the MOMENTS,  when everything is beautiful, everyone is engaged, your throat tightens and you smile to yourself because you know that this is truly special. Leif Vollebekk's Friday night rooftop set was such a moment. Panoramic views over Montreal, gothic rooftops and the Mt Royal cross pushing up into the cloud line, the sun setting golden orange in the Montreal north. On a Persian rug island ringed with electric candelabra, Vollebekk sets up, invites the tiny crowd to pull near. What follows is a deeply intimate hour of music, Vollebekk alternately behind the keyboard and guitar, traffic from Parc Avenue offering the occasional punctuation. 


TONITE @ 11:59pm : dj flugvél og geimskip, HEALTH, Fog @ Piccolo Rialto

Icelandic artist dj flugvél og geimskip first crossed CJLO’s radar during CMJ 2015 in New York City, with a magical performance at the conference’s Iceland Airwaves Showcase. Despite her artist name (which translates to DJ Airplane and Spaceship), she is a fantasy-inspired, electronic musician rather than a conventional DJ. Dj flugvél og geimskip explained to CJLO that in her art she prefers exploring the mythical to the mundane. Her upbeat electronic sound is laced with Icelandic and english lyrics that explore possibilities like cats in space. Her thematic explorations follow the philosophy that it is better to sing about what might be going on throughout the universe than earthly relationships.

L.A. Witch @ Metropolis - POP Montreal 2016

Presented by Evenko and POP Montreal

The music of L.A. Witch has a prowling, expansive, and gorgeously atmospheric quality that grabs the attention and enters your dreams. One can hear the influence of bands like Mazzy Star, or The Dream Syndicate and Opal from the '80s paisley underground scene in Los Angeles, but L.A. Witch's vibe is stripped down to the bare bones and sexier, with a more intimate grindhouse rocker vibe.

POP Montreal 2016 - #CJLOgoesPOP

Contrary to popular misconception, many of us "older" ladies out there who work full time Monday through Friday love music too. In fact, we can rock out harder than most of you slackers, and there's absolutely no way we're going to miss POP Montreal just because we have to wake up at 6:00 AM so we can be alert at our desks by 9:00.
