it pains me to say but the were terrible, I blame the scala.
And the baby! Aww.
i thought they were amazing!
maybe you were at the front, at the back it sounded like a band playing in a rehersal room down the hall, it is a shame because the band seemed really into it and probably had no idea how quiet it was
there must have been someone sitting behind a sound desk thinking 'yeah this sounds alright no need to turn it up at all' it sounded like kareoke, and the new bass player is no who ever the old bass player was oslo in the summertime was actually painfully bad it was like listening to a walkman with the bateries going flat
I was at the back as well. I did think the sound was a bit dodgy at times but it didnt really spoil it for me. It was the first time I'd seen them and didn't know what to expect but I enjoyed it immensly.
But I still enjoyed it. And the baby was SO CUTE!
I didnt see was it alabee? The cloaked men in masks were actually a little disturbing and were they throwing actual paint into the audience?
you missed the baby? your disappointment would have been much lessened had you seen her.
she was indeed a very cute baby.
She was carried on during The Party's Crashing us. She danced along and it was amazing.
They didn't throw paint at the audience, they just handed it out in cups. I think it might have been melted chocolate, but I'm not sure. All I know is someone in front of my tried to drink it.
The cloaked men in masks were cool. The reading of the newspaper during Bunny (I think it was Bunny) was sheer genius though. It was all great. What they lacked in sound, I think they more than made up for in energy and spectacle.
the newspaper bit was incredible! Think it was in She's A Rejector
damn my heighgt
it took me ages to get a spot where i could actually see and then the very kind man that was standing in front of me moved so I could see better. If only all tall people at gigs were so thoughtful!
should have spent less time dancing and joining in with all the la la la bits and more time doing the sound. Still, the past is a grotesque animal was nevertheless amazing
The sound was a bit poor towards the start, but where I was stood the second half of the set sounded amazing, and they put so much in.
Pull Tiger Tail however are one of the blandest things I've ever borne witness to.
I thought the start was a bit slow but after that it was amazing. There weren't any problems with the volume where I was stood and it sounded ok to me. To see them do 'The past is...' pretty much made my life. Did seem to be a rather short set though, not that that's necessarily a bad thing.
Oh and it was some kind of red foam they were throwing into the crowd, some hit me right in the mouth, it didn't taste very nice.
pretty awful further back. But hey, Kevin Barnes hit me with a giant squeaky hot dog he threw into the crowd - which I nicked - pretty good night all round.
I have no idea what it was
is a testament the greatness of of montreal
No stepladder dress this time though :(
my friend Simon has some nice pics over on his Flickr if anyone's interested.
it was such a good gig?! SUCH A GOOD GIG?!?
wave machines were real good too.
the sound was appaling I could barely recognise the songs at some points
I'm not a sound man, nor would I have any clue how to be one, but from the front it sounded absolutely fine.
It's a shame it spoilt your gig, I was under the impression the Scala was usually quite good.
You were ace too. I looked for you briefly after the gig, but I really needed a wee so I needed to rush off.
It was a little bit quiet but every song was definitely distinguishable.
