i think i'm allergic to down feathers.

soooooo, last night was the long awaited of montreal show at music hall ... i thought about seeing them tonight too, but before i could make a decision, it was sold out.

the first band, fire zuave, was nothing special. they were just dirty and awkward and every song sounded the same. i think the lead singer borrowed his makeup and outfit from kevin. really, not flattering on this guy.
their set was too long and i found myself yawning throughout the whole set.

next was janelle monae ... i wasn't sure what to expect from her, though i'd heard rave reviews of her for the past few months, so i figured she couldn't be bad. little did i know, she would be flippin BRILLIANT! she's got pipes for days, and she's totally adorable, and shit, she can dance! i basically wanted to be her.
ugh, so awesome.

although of montreal was wonderful as usual, i felt like kevin was holding back a little. i mean, he was wearing clothes for almost the entire set, it was very unlike him. but of course, the theatrics were ridiculous and my clothes are ruined.
i have a lifetime supply of feathers and i'll probably have glitter stuck in my hair for the next week.
i love them. there's nothing more i can say than that.
i was all itchy during and after the show, from the feathers. i still feel them stuck in my throat.
they are beyond amazing. seriously, their live show is an experience, and for someone to be DISAPPOINTED after seeing them is a fucking crime.
they are just too fun to comprehend.

"oslo in summertime" was the highlight of the night, i think.
it's not even one of my favorite songs, but good lord, it's so exciting when they play it.
they played um, 20 songs? ... two hour set.
there were about equal amounts of songs from skeletal lamping, hissing fauna, satanic panic and sunlandic, which was good!
last time they played, it was mostly songs from skeletal lamping ... i needed some chaaaaaange.

is the show in the running for the top 10 shows of the year? most definitely.
is it top 5 material? maybe.

well then, til next time, of montreal.
