Festival International de Jazz de Montréal: Here We Go Magic and Belle and Sebastian

While the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal carried on through the weekend, Friday was Under the Radar’s final day of musical adventures. One could not ask for a better sendoff than standout sets from Here We Go Magic and Belle and Sebastian.

Midweek report. Wi-fi still works. Poutine stands still in possession of plenty of gravy and cheese. Street performers happily twirling in the ever-increasing humidity. Crazy guys in American flag hats in honor of the Fourth of July. Bucolic: thy name is Festival International de Jazz de Montréal. More

Festival International de Jazz de Montréal: Mozart’s Sister, Woodkid, and Mucca Pazza

My second day at Festival International de Jazz de Montréal was also Canada Day. I celebrated the occasion with vegetarian poutine, Perrier, and a pair of street performers who did what they called a “PG strip tease.” Reflecting on this, it all seems both logical and novel. How else would you want to mark such a momentous event? Music was also available at ever turn, the highlights and lowlights being Mozart’s SisterWoodkid, and Mucca Pazza. More

Festival International de Jazz de Montréal: CFCF and Rhye

After an afternoon spent wandering around and sampling several outdoor events (including a youth jazz band so talented it made me weep for my pre-teen ambitions of becoming the next Benny Goodman), I kicked off my Festival International de Jazz de Montréal slate of evening concerts with a Canadian and Canadian(ish) act: CFCF and Rhye
