The Unicorns @ Metropolis

Who Will Cut our Hair Now that The Unicorns are Gone?

Excitement and energy filled the Metropolis concert hall on the night that The Unicorns played Montreal after a ten-year hiatus. I walked into the room feeling nostalgic with memories of listening to The Unicorns as a teenager, but I had no real idea of what to expect from the live show. I heard amazing stories from my roommate who recalled seeing the guys in 2004 at a show in Toronto where they invited a random, rough-looking man on stage to drum for them, only to find out that he had excellent rhythm. I kept this story in the back of my mind.

The hot ticket at POP Montreal this year was undoubtedly Saturday night's triple bill at Club Soda. A sold-out crowd gathered on the corner of Saint-Laurent and Ste-Catherine street, amongst the hookers and hustlers, ready to show their love for the garage psych powerhouse, Ty Segall and his band.
