SUPERSUCKERS @ Musée Juste Pour Rire

By K-Man - "Beyond That Graveyard! III" - 04/23/2006

I gotta say right off the bat, these guys are always better the first time you see them. I saw them in '93, was it? They were a lot more punk rock, you know that whole cow-punk dealio, all guitar and even more attitude. Now it was April 23, 2006.

The cover for this album was disappointingly tame. I mean, if it's not a picture of a maggot colony bursting out of a corpse performing cunnilingus on a dead pregnant body that has demon/mutant/alien thing tearing itself free from the womb, is it really a Cannibal Corpse album cover?

KATAKLYSM - In the Arms of Devastation

I have never been to CEPSUM before and when I arrived, I was surprised to see how big it was. It is a huge stadium, reminding me of the Sky Dome. The openers were The Cribs but sadly I didn’t get to catch their act. Throughout the whole night, both Franz Ferdinand and Death Cab mention how much they like the openers, even dedicating songs to them so if you are into both headliners, check out The Cribs.

ISIS @ Le National

April 26th 2006 and I get to finally see a show at Le National. Opposite Beaudry metro, I'm deep, deep in the Village now. It's raining and me and my boys are hungry. We hit this cool little Vietnamese place just east of the venue; the authenticity of this place is mind-boggling, right down to the music. It turns out to be a classic sake night.

ARAB STRAP @ La Tulipe

dEUS + Eastern Conference Champions @ Main Hall

By Jordan-na Belle-Isle - Canadian Invasion - 03/25/2006

After a five-year hiatus, dEUS is back with a new album (Pocket Revolution) and a new label (V2). Popular in Europe during the nineties, members of the Belgium band took time off to pursue side projects, which usually indicate the demise of a band. Yet their show in Montreal proved the contrary. Although dEUS had been gone, they were certainly not forgotten by their faithful following nor had forgotten how to put on a great show.
