Arcade Fire

Montrealers have all been watching the skies today, hoping the rain will wear itself out before the Big Show tonight. Arcade Fire, along with Kid Koala and Karkwa, are playing a free outdoor show downtown… and rumour has it that the police are expecting maybe 100,000 people. I don’t think it will be that many, but who knows. Maybe Montreal will surprise me. Today is the second day of Pop Montreal, one of the best music festivals in a city that hosts a lot of good music festivals, so a lot of people are already in the mood to rock.

As for me, I’m expecting a very high quotient of hipsters at tonight’s event. Hopefully me and my companions, Dr. B & Glo, will be able to resist the waves of ‘ironic’ fashion statements, bad haircuts, and creepy facial hair long enough to enjoy what promises to be some great music.

Check back tomorrow for my review!


  1. Pretty sure they’re beyond hipsterdome by now… Yay, I’ve heard Kid Koala’s rad to! Let’s go early enough for that. 🙂
