Published Sep 26, 2011Montreal's favorite indie-rock-meets-hip-hop party band, previously thought to have been disbanded, wrapped up the Pop Montreal festival in the most fitting way possible: with a dance party, complete with crowd-surfing, that moved on stage for the finale.
As the band triumphantly took the stage, lead singer Martin Cesar proclaimed, "I don't know what the fuck I'm doing here on stage, and I don't know what you're all doing here, either!" Everybody was thrilled that they were there, regardless; and the band (which includes Graham Van Pelt, also of Miracle Fortress) stage-dove into crowd-pleasers like "Having My Baby," "Sweet Sixteen" and "Joanna" from their 2009 album Family.
At one point the band's former drummer, visual artist Matt Shane, was invited to the stage to perform with the group for a song, and then proceeded to crowd-surf off the stage as the current drummer took over once again, showcasing the family-like relationship between the more seasoned members of Montreal's local indie music and arts scene.
After the set, there is now lingering uncertainty whether or not Think About Life are actually done for or if this has merely been a hiatus. Many claimed this was their last show together, while other sources hint that may not be the case. The event was hopefully a warm enough welcome home to help Cesar and the gang reconsider their options.
