So, Le Tricolore, you'll be effin thrilled to learned that The National is actually in fact coming to Montreal this summer! July 31th to Osheaga festival along with Arcade Fire and Keane! I CANNOT WAIT. NEVER SAW THEM LIVE.
it's awesome that Arcade Fire are playing Osheaga, but i'm really hoping for a proper tour... i camped out outside of l'Oblique in the middle of winter a few years ago for a ticket to one of their shows at the Ukranian Federation - it was quite an intense experience, but totally worth it!!!
I love Arcade Fire and The National (sounds like both are releasing albums in time for the festival). I was actually just looking this week into going elsewhere to see The National in June (maybe Boston) and the next day Osheaga was announced -- pretty psyched.
Sunday's line-up of Weezer, Cat Empire and The Black Keys is pretty damn good.
Metric is so good. I have discovered them when I saw their name, for the first time, on Osheaga's lineup. If everything goes as planned, I will see them three times in minimal times: at Woodstock en Beauce, at Osheaga and then at Muse, on October 21 in Québec City. I was listening to their MySpace at the moment, actually. Thrilled. I wondered if their album is worth picking up?
Not fond of Weezer but they make good music. Can't get into Cat Empire much. But on sunday, look out for We Are Wolves. I really like their music! I bought their most recent album and its awesome. The sweetheart diva in me will be looking forward to see Ariane Moffat, too. What? She's cute.
I'm stoked, the lineup is ridiculous. Arcade Fire, Metric, Weezer, The Black Keys, Sonic Youth, The Gaslight Anthem, We Are Wolves, Cage The Elephant, Major Lazer, Deadmau5, etc. Hell, even Snoop Dogg is there
