montreal vs. the super friendz
last night, sloannetters Andrea (from Vancouver, B.C.) and i (living in
Ottawa, ON) ventured into Montreal to catch Zumpano and the Super Friendz
at Foufons <?>. Quaint place, pretty neat, and a descent turnout.
we missed the opening act from Montreal. oops.
next up were Zumpano whose peppy pop was in perfect style :)
then the fabulous Super Friendz hit the stage. Looking lean and mean
like a green machine.. uhhh.. noooo... They were full-on rockers with
the lights-a-flashing, smoke-machine-a-puffing, and the usual rock
moves. Hearts wer a-poundin' when early on in the set, Matt tried to hop
onto the drumkit, but slipped, and the front of the bass drum was torn.
Now, that's rock'n roll!
It a pretty short set. They played material off of _MUSD_ and _PTGNG_, as
well as 3 new songs and a cover. Matt has an absolutely beautiful and
heart-wrenching ballad. The chorus goes along the lines of (and i'm
paraphrasing) "i thought you felt the same way as me, but now i will die
knowing you did not love me". It is sooooooo beautiful and sad. Drew
had a "new" tune as well (but i've heard it before), and was in fine
screeching mode during the theme song. Lonnie impressed the crowd with
his stick throwing,and Charles.. was Charles, i guess ;) The cover song
wounded like a country-ish tune? just based on the lyrics, which i don't
remember. unfortunately, there were time restrictions so there was no
encore :( and no "Up and Running" either :( :( :( :( but the hits were
a great night for music :) yahoo :) AND if you're in Montreal tonight,
catch the Super Friendz and Zumpano at one of the bars at McGill
(Granz?) Cover is $3, and doors open at 7 p.m. (darn, wish i could go
oh yeah, and Pete Elkas (of the Local Rabbits) was up front for one song
doing the "jock dance"!!!!! heehee :)
