Last Monday, 26/05, I went to the concert of Broken Social Scene in Tavastia. Broken Social Scene is the kind of music I really like so I was very excited before the concert! This was the last concert of the tour titled “Impregnate the Skies” which lasted three weeks featuring seven members of the band, Kevin Drew, Brendan Canning, Justin Peroff, Charles Spearin, Sam Goldberg, Amy Millan, and Evan Cranley. In the stage you could see smiles, laughs, hugs and kisses, feel their joy playing the tunes, and I think that happiness was successfully transmitted to the crowd. Amazing concert. Here, the opening song, “7/4 Shoreline”,
Some time ago I got the last album of Why?, Alopecia, it is a very interesting and consistent. They present a unique mix of hip-hop and indie-rock which at the first listening I found intriguing because it really keeps strong elements from both genres.
It was interesting to see two sets of drums, one played by the singer, the instruments going around all the band members, but above all to notice that their unique hip-hop/indie-rock fusion works even better live where you can see from where all the small sounds come from. Big plus for the versatility of the singer and power of the drums. Nice to watch live especially in a small place like Kuudes Linja where the band members were seated in a sofa selling t-shirts and albums. First time in this place for a concert, looking forward to come back for more, there was Atlas Sound today but my body demands some rest! Waiting for Broken Social Scene now, 26.05.
I have the ticket for the concert of José González in the 28 of April at Kulttuuritalo, Helsinki!
