TASTE OF CHAOS: The Used + My Chemical Romance @ Stade Uniprix

By Nikkie - More Rock Than A Crackhouse - 03/03/2005

Take the essence of the Warped Tour (angry mallrats, merch and overpriced food), add to this too many scenesters and bad hairdos and a stage sponsored by myspace.com and what you get is the Warped Tour’s new sibling, the Taste Of Chaos Tour. Don’t get me wrong, the idea behind Taste Of Chaos was pure genius: a harder, louder, smaller version of the Warped Tour featuring the hottest screamo bands of the moment. The results however… not so hot.


THE MUSIC + Kasabian @ Cabaret La Tulipe

By Jordan-na - Canadian Invasion - 02/24/2005

There was something in the smoky air of La Tulipe that Thursday night. Something special was about to happen. It was a night of firsts: first time seeing a live show at La Tulipe, first time hearing The Music and Kasabian, and first time being completely blown away by the opening act. Minutes before Kasabian took the stage, I leaned over to my friend and said ‘This is gonna be good.” I could not have been more right.


SHIVAREE + Shoot The Moon @ Main Hall

By Jordan-na - Canadian Invasion - 02/14/2005

On Monday February 14th, love was in the air. California band Shivaree crept into Montreal and stole the hearts of those attending their show at the Main Hall with an inviting evening of warm music on a cold night.


Snowstorm Vol. I CD Release Party: Squalor + Pete Möss + Floating Widget + Medusa Head Trip + Absolu @ Foufounes Électriques


By Angelica - BVST - 02/16/2005

This was THE night for celebrating the best that the Montreal stoner rock scene has to offer. Tickets were cheap, beer was flowin' freely, and "paraphernalia" was handed out at the door, so the crowd was definitely ready to get down, and they weren't disappointed.


HIGH ON FIRE - Blessed Black Wings

By Robot - No Sleep Til Bedtime - 02/01/2005

I thought I’d better review this one before somebody else at CJLO does, ‘cause it’s looking like it’s gonna be the hottest record in the Metal department for at least a month, and I bet at least a few rock/punk/alt shows will be playing it (I can name names).


KEANE + the Zutons @ Metropolis

By Mikey B - The Lonesome Stranger - 02/12/2005

I can specifically remember working on a crisp late summer day in Fairview. It’s those kinds of days where the slightest thing would piss you off… People who know me best know that it takes a lot to piss me off. I can take most physical and verbal abuse and still have a pseudo-smile on my face. This particular day at HMV, however, just killed my spirit. Not because of co-workers, and surprisingly not because of jerk-off customers, but because of the store playlist.
