launched their album, Anthologie des 3 Perchoirs, on April 17 @ Le Tulipe. The event which was to be held at sister building Le National, moved to the Papineau venue apparently due to liquor license issues @ Le National. Never the less the show went on. The psychedelic dada-pop journey, dark and thick through the strange and sweet-then-turned-sour vocals. The bass tickled my spine, while the guitar buzzed my ear drum. Yet as the dance punk excited a flurry on the dance floor, I'm sad to say I wasn't feeling it.

My mood just didn't catch on to the frantic energy.It began to be a battle of volume and intensity; screaming guitars, moaning bass and relentless drumming with keyboards, kept me from savoring a streamlined sound. The group's obvious confidence and earnestness was clear to see. These guys have been places, and performed for many. They have been playlisted on CBC Radio 3 and Bande à part, and have performed at Eurockéennes and the Osheaga Festival. Maybe the sound was just not for me., or I wasn't in a jumpy mood after a witnessing a bad Habs loss. Anything is possible. Glad to see a local band I must say. With so many big acts coming through town, it was good to support local music to ensure it continues. Thank you Gen.I do also want to mention the great pleasure it was to meet up with other fellow MP writers earlier in the evening. It was motivating and exciting to meet all who came out.This writer hope there's more gatherings such as that one. Here's a little slide show of the show.
