Think all gigs are the same? If so refresh your thinking with tonight's show at Club Academy brought to you by Hey Manchester and Pineapple Folk. Here's what they say:
We’re delighted to present of Montreal’s first visit to Manchester since June 2007, when they played an unforgettable sold-out show for us at the Roadhouse! Since then, they’ve performed with a real life horse in New York, which kind of puts the step-ladder-and-hotpants spectacle we got in the shade, doesn’t it? This time round, however, we’ve got them an extra large stage to handle their musical theatrics (including dedicated dancers and two drummers, we hear).
Get a taster by watching this:
Or higher quality footage of the 2007 tour can be streamed on Fabchannel but you really should be there in person for an extraordinary collision of indie-pop-psychedelia with vaudeville and music hall. Tickets here.
