Grand Trine, So Cow, and Tyvek at Le Divan Orange, Montreal, 09/07/10

(Yeah I went back to Montreal- not just for this show though.)

Grand Trine seemed to play quite a different set from all the other times I've seen them, only one song off their Sunglasses 12" -- I think. I quite enjoyed the different stuff (despite singer "just getting off a bus from work". Tough life 'eh?) He also proceeded to hula with the fan. So Cow (Ireland) were not my bag at all. In fact they were so boring that I actually fell asleep in the bar for a few moments, I was that person (may or may not have something to do with the fact that I hadn't slept in about 40 hours, too.) And I was kind of expecting Tyvek to be a little bit more fun but maybe I don't think they were because of that sleep thing. I don't think they played Air Conditioner either (please correct me if I'm wrong due to my warped state)! Should be able to catch a few more shows in New York before heading back home to ol' Sydney where I may or may not continue this. It could be weird.

EDIT (16/07/10): Saw So Cow with Thee Oh Sees and Golden Triangle in New York (no photos) and they were actually really quite fun, so this Montreal show was perhaps both of us on a bad night. Felt the need to put that out there.
