There are two concerts I'd really, really like to see happening at the end of July:
Yelle is playing Cabaret Juste Pour Rire on July 31.(23 $$) If that name doesn't ring a bell, you'll probably remember this video (if not, check your medical records, it probably sent you to the hospital with an epileptic seizure).
(There's a "classier" version too)
Definitely a show for fans of Peaches, M.I.A. and the 80s.
But also playing that night is Camille of Le Fil and Le Sac des Filles fame, and Thomas Hellman. (35 $$)
I caught Thomas Hellman on CBC last night and fell kinda' in love. He plays French folk songs which invoke dusty country roads and grungy Plateau bars...
A Couple of Samples:
Caimille - Le Fil
Quand je marche
Caimille - Le Sac des Fille
1, 2, 3
One show will probably get you bouncing around like you've eaten 5 boxes of nerds, and the other will make you feel like you're lounging in a porch swing watching the rain. To bad you have to choose..
