Fucked Up & Kim Ann Foxman at POP Montreal - Tonight!

Posted by Theo / September 22, 2011

20110922_FuckedUp_KimAnn.jpgSomehow, within the next few hours, I have to find a way to split myself in half lengthwise in order to take advantage of two very different Pop shows occurring late tonight.

In a perfect world I would go to one show, let's say Fucked Up at Église Saint-Édouard, open a Fringe-like portal to a parallel timeline and jump back and forth from my reality to the parallel reality in which my alternate self has chosen to see Kim Ann Foxman at Le Belmont. Unfortunately, this technology is still in its infancy (rest assured, I found this information on only the most trustworthy of angelfire sites), and there are still a few reanimation kinks that need to be worked out before I can even entertain the idea (not to mention the sticky problem of the unravelling of space-time fabric). Thus, save using my trusty laser saw (yes, they do exist) to cut myself down the middle and developing cybernetic limbs as replacements for my missing halves, I will simply have to flip a coin and let the fates determine where I end up.

Fucked Up come to Montreal having recently finished a tour in Europe in support of their last album, the excellent David Comes to Life. A meaty rock opera, the album sheds elements of the band's hardcore past, embracing jangly guitar lines and pop melodies to help tell a story of love, loss and societal collapse in the fictional industrial town of Byrdesdale Spa, England. Of course, David Comes to Life still features the rabid dog bark of Pink Eyes (aka Damien Abraham) and his Berserker stage presence is still a focal point of the band's live act. In combination, these elements should create a kick-ass show tonight. Get your fist ready to pump and your voice ready to shout. Opening for Fucked Up are Tasseomancy and No Joy.

Kim Ann Foxman may not be an instantly recognizable name, but those familiar with disco/house revivalists Hercules and Love Affair will no doubt recognize her voice. Along with Aerea Negrot, she sings on the group's first album and their most recent effort, Blue Songs. Tonight Ms. Foxman will be spinning fresh jams at the DFA Dance Party, a show that features a plethora of other excellent DJs, including Prince Language, Charles Damga, Rilly Guilty and Montreal's own CFCF. If you're looking for an opportunity to test out your latest voguing moves or if you simply need to find relief for your restless legs syndrome, throw on some high tops, a spandex unitard, and a flat brimmed baseball cap and head to Le Belmont for a night of sweat and frolicking.

Fucked up w/ Tasseomancy and No Joy at Église Saint-Édouard. Show starts at 23:00. Fucked up are on at 1:30.
