Think About Life Montreal, QC November 19

For those immune to the bomp of their sophomore record Family, Think About Life's unhinged and endearing live set may leave you as delirious as you should be. Though musically and theatrically tight, it's the band's energy and soul that prove infectious, and singer Martin Cesar, wing-woman Caila Thompson-Hannant and keyboardist/back-up singer Graham Van Pelt (fresh from wowing the crowd with the light show and neo-Bronski Beat sound of Miracle Fortress) are teeming with both. Bolstered by guests Liam O'Neill (the Stills) and Evan Cranley (Stars) on brass, as well as a vocal cameo by Cadence Weapon, this was a celebratory end to M for M day one.
