On The Heels of M: Day Two Highlights

Posted by Katelyn / November 18, 2011

181111_AbsolutelyFree.jpgThe show got on the road right on time Thursday night, but we on the other hand arrived fashionably late. Unfortunately, our time miscalculation caused us to miss Daniel Isaiah. Grr!

While delegates walked across the street to Casa Del Popolo to see For A Minor Reflection, the remaining crowd at Sala Rossa waited in anticipation of Absolutely Free's inaugural performance. The band recycles four out of the five members of now-defunct Toronto experimental indie band DD/MM/YYYY. The group dissolved earlier this month after an eight-year-long run.

As to be expected due to the relatively unchanged lineup, Absolutely Free's material doesn't stray too far off the beaten DD/MM/YYYY track. Some cool atmospheric bits are characteristic of the new band's sound, as well as extended instrumental intros that suddenly crash into powerful, erratic verses.

After they finished, it was the regular-folks' turn to check out For A Minor Reflection. The Icelandic foursome played four intense Mogwai-esque instrumental rock songs before the party continued across the street with hip hop artist Cadence Weapon.

I must say, seeing a bunch of hipsters and dead-pan delegates at a rap show was quite entertaining. But the crowd couldn't deny the Edmonton native's charisma, and the performance made it obvious that Cadence Weapon has the ability to meld genres and think outside the box. The rapper's clean and refined rhymes were set to beats laid down by local experimental soundscape artist Flow Child.

After Toronto glam-pop trio Young Empires ended the showcase on a dance-y note, we headed to Le Belmont to check out Montreal hip hop collective Nation Ruckus. Rapper Mike-E Fresh was a sick performer, but his beats kept giving me deja vues.

We then swung around the corner to L'Esco to catch the much-talked-about punk/thrash group Trigger Effect. The venue was perfectly cramped and dingy, resulting in a sweaty mess of a set that ripped through the crowd like a spontaneous tornado. The mosh pit's tendency to migrate in and out of the band's setup went practically unnoticed by its members, who were just as consumed by their music as the crowd was.

Beckham also played on loan with AC Milan and made 115 appearances for his country,
a record in England for someone other than a goalkeeper.
In one match you can use up to 30 runes (at level 30) but you
can also change the runes after the match if you want to play
another champion. Make certain you have it operating in the track record when you
are in a game.

One thing I’d really like to say is that often car insurance cancelling is a dreadful experience and if you’re doing the suitable things as a driver you won’t get one. Many people do obtain the notice that they are officially dumped by their own insurance company they have to fight to get additional insurance after a cancellation. Inexpensive auto insurance rates are frequently hard to get from a cancellation. Having the main reasons concerning the auto insurance cancelling can help car owners prevent losing one of the most important privileges out there. Thanks for the concepts shared by means of your blog.

I think that everything typed made a bunch of sense.
However, consider this, what if you were to create a killer headline?
I ain't saying your information isn't good., however
what if you added a title that grabbed folk's attention? I mean On The Heels
of M: Day Two Highlights is kinda boring.
You ought to peek at Yahoo's front page and note how they create
news headlines to get people interested. You might add a
video or a related pic or two to grab readers excited about everything've
written. In my opinion, it could make your website a little livelier.
