Malajube - Metropolis - Dec. 8

Posted by Valerie / December 9, 2007

After many months on tour all over Canada, the U.S., Europe and Asia, Malajube were finally back in town to present another impressive concert last night at Metropolis.

The band, with a recently added fifth member, really gave all they got for the conclusion of their tour. The room was packed with boys and girls ready to have a taste of the "syrupy" rock Malajube plays so well.

The Malajube magic starts with their child-like creativity, their French lyrics, and their indie rock - sometimes de-constructed, sometimes silky, sometimes loud, but always melodic and never pretentious.

Generally, Malajube are very energetic on stage and try to make their show special. I have had the occasion to see them live many times and there was always something particular about their performance: wearing costumes, going nude on stage, stepping in the crowd and duct-tapping people together (!), but last night it really was the lighting that made it impressive.

On the other hand, the guys from Malajube are not flamboyant when it comes to speech - they really take the "less talk, more rock" situation seriously and barely even take a break in-between songs. Was it because it became some sort of routine after so many shows? Were they a bit fed up? Maybe, since there was very little improvisation happening - the songs from the albums Le Compte Complet and Trompe L'Oeil were delivered pretty much exactly like they are on record.

Good news is, now that the tour is over, we should expect a third album from Malajube sometime soon - and it seems like many more fans from all over the place can't wait for another tasty delivery from our local French ambassadors.

Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.

Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I
can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about creating my
own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or
suggestions? Appreciate it
