Went to both the Montreal and Toronto shows for Courtney Barnett. I had lovely balcony seats for Toronto but I was able to get right up to the stage at Montreal. Am I weird for enjoying the live show more than her albums?

I've mentioned them before, but I finally got to see Charly Bliss tonight and oh my, they are incredible. Insane amounts of energy and a total freaking blast of a show. They are wrapping up their tour currently, but they are a must see in my book.

So far the shows this year have been incredible for me. Spring is usually the weaker part of the year and I get all the treats in the fall, but man this year has been a loving blast!

I saw them play a Christmas show last year and it was loving amazing so when they stopped by Toronto again tonight I couldn't miss it. Skating Polly + Charly Bliss is one hell of a lineup.

Yeah that happened last night too; she passed out on the stage after the SP set and it was tense couple of minutes there. She seemed okay afterwards and was running the merch table at the end of the night.

Toronto, Yonge-Dundas Square. Canada's crudbum ripoff of SXSW that's been slowly gaining steam over the years to something not crudbum.

U.S. Girls play the Friday night - that's some good stuff too, drat.

I missed their show when they stopped by on the tour, so this is kind of appealing but I also don't really wanna hang out there on a Saturday night.

I really don't understand why Courtney Barnett's album isn't getting more love this year. It's not like the album got bad reviews or anything, but I haven't seen it show up on any end-of-year lists. It's my favourite thing she's done, and it's by far my favourite album of the year.

I didn't like it as much as the last one. When I went to see her live on tour the energy in the room was noticeably different when she played material off of the new album versus the older ones. They're different types of songs, sure, but they feel more low key like the ones off of the Kurt Vile collaboration and was just less enjoyable

I don't think they played Toronto before. If they have I must have missed it. The last time I saw 'em was at Pitchfork 2015 when their set ended after like 3 songs because of rain.

Anyway it was a loving blast. The songs off the new album sound even better live.

The Rebel in Toronto. Bad sound, poor layout, terrible staff.

The biggest issue is location. It's in an area called the Port Lands - basically a massive lakeside industrial area with some entertainment stuff positioned closer to "shore". There's only one road going in and out for transit and it's isolated as hell. So that means if you're taking the bus, you're waiting for that one bus that comes every 30 minutes with 1,500 people who got out of the show with you and need to get home.

It also means that if there are fights/stabbings/shootings/theft - pretty frequent in that area - the police etc. take forever to get there because they're fighting against traffic.

To bring it back to music, I think the last time I was there was to see Explosions in the Sky in, I wanna say 2012? It was fine and it's hard to mess up an EITS show. One of the worst concerts I went to was there: M.I.A., soon after Kala was released and Paper Planes was blowing up big time with moms who had seen Slumdog Millionaire and suburban scrubs like myself. She showed up 90 minutes late and it was just an indistinguishable wall of bass. It fuckin' sucked.

Just to bring it back to the earlier discussion, this is the same venue Lizzo is playing now that she played at before with Sleater-Kinney, back when it was called Sound Academy.

You'd think that with the renovation they could improve the acoustics but I guess not for reasons??? Janelle Monae was there last summer and I also skipped it because that location stinks.

Marshmello is more than likely just an rear end in a top hat who doesn't care about who he works with as long as it gets him attention/money. He probably doesn't care about Lauren coming out and saying this either, so long as it does not affect the money/attention coming to him.

I'm a casual Sleater-Kinney fan (I only basically listen to The Hot Rock), so please S-Kplain to me — what is the new direction they're going and why might it not suit Janet's style or character?

It's mostly speculation at this point but folks are saying that the new direction with a slower, muted drumbeat and St. Vincent influenced sound is probably what did it. She stayed to help finish the album, but during this live performance you see she's not into it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6xrSuIqrhRU

Compare this to anything off of The Woods or One Beat, or hell even Dig Me Out, the album where she joined the band. Carrie and Corin didn't start the band with her, but by their own admission Janet was the missing piece.

I saw Sleater-Kinney for the second time on Sunday. Still really hate the Rebel, because if you sit at the back, all the sound kind of dies before it gets to you. Still, they put on a great show. I felt like the crowd wasn't feeling it as much, but I was also in the back, so who knows. They played the entire new album, plus the new single, and sprinkled in some of the older stuff.

Then I just bought Bikini Kill tickets today, so it's been a pretty good week for riot grrrl.

I was front row centre and folks were definitely more active up front. It depends on the kind of crowd shows draw, but I've still noticed that at Toronto shows most times people are fairly subdued.
