To speak in a morning-after, too-tired cliche: the only bad thing about Think About Life was that the set was too short. The Montreal band, and our cover stars, didn't disappoint, as the uninhibited masses grooved, hand-clapped and crowd-surfed, showing off their most tight-sweatered, moustached, charmingly awkward moves. Dynamic singer Martin Cesar, a swoon-worthy, undiscovered Canadian indie hottie, disappeared into the crowds several times, as the rest of the band (especially the amazing female singer—nice moves!) kept up the energy. Cadence Weapon, on next, joined them onstage for a raucous "Sweet Sixteen" finale.
The energy reminded me of another Montreal band at the Paragon. During the King Khan show last summer, the crowd surprisingly became a collection of total Axe-boy pushy-pants douches (I heard a story that involved human excrement), to the point where Khan was openly insulting guys. Last night felt much more like a mutual cross=province love-in: especially after someone yelled out "Montreal rocks!"
Anyway, here's a little video before my camera went kaput.
