SUM 41 + No Warning @ Metropolis

THE PIXIES + Marble Index + the Datsuns @ CEPSUM

By Oli Pulleybank - Boozehound Radio - 11/27/2004

As the guitar tech put the bright orange bass he had been tuning back on to its stand and sauntered off the stage, the crowd at the University of Montreal’s CEPSUM arena felt a rush of nervous excitement overwhelming them. I stood towards the back, feeling like the luckiest of all the schmucks who had conned their way onto the guestlist, and knew that the wait was almost over. Making their triumphant return to Montreal were the almighty Pixies, having not graced La Belle Ville with their sonic assault in over 22 hours.


Sam Roberts @ Metropolis

Antonella F. - The Siamese Libertines - 11/24/2004

Sam used to be known to me as “that cute, shy waiter from Shayne’s” (the short-lived restaurant on Bishop street owned by the Montreal Canadiens player, Shayne Corson). Now, almost four years later, he is known nationwide as one of Canada’s hottest rock acts. I was, therefore, eagerly anticipating my chance at seeing him again for the first time since his clean-cut days at Shayne’s (I’m not a regular at Le Pistol).


ZEKE + the Black Halos + Vulgar Deli @ Cabaret La Tulipe

By T-Bone - The Beer OClock - 11/13/04

So it was Zeke, the Black Halos, and Vulgar Deli at La Tulipe. This was Zeke's first time in Canada. Sonny, their old guitar player had a criminal record which made it impossible for Zeke to cross the border in the past. Now that he is out of the way, Zeke as a three-piece crossed the border and did a full Canadian Tour, playing all the little buttfuck towns, as well as the major cities...


HOT SNAKES @ La Sala Rossa

By Omar Goodness - Hooked on Sonics - 11/09/04

After witnessing what I just did, I'm pretty sure of one thing: the Hot Snakes are not human. Playing every song with impeccable precision and unseen and unheard of tightness, these dudes have gotta be machines. Currently on a mammoth tour behind their frenetically fabulous new album, Audit in Progress, these three guys from San Diego and one from Brooklyn hit the stage at la Sala Rossa for their first show in Montreal to an excited and anxious crowd.


GREEN DAY + New Found Glory + Sugarcult @ Bell Center

By Nikkie Landry - More Rock Than a Crack House - 11/04/04

On November 4th, I could have been at home watching the OC premiere, but instead I decide to spend the best 90.00$ I've ever spent and went to see the "godfathers of pop punk", Green Day.

I must admit, this was my first show at the Bell Centre, but the fact that there were so many people only made me realize how much of a big following Green Day has now. Youngsters and not-so youngsters reunited to see this unforgettable event.
