Thursday, Sept.3 at Maison des Arts in Laval, there was three local bands playing. The first of them was Truly Yours(www.myspace.com/trulyyoursrock) who are really inspired by indie-rock as well as pop legends. They played tribute to Michael Jackson with Billie Jean mixed with their set of original song.
Thirty minutes later, Casino hit the stage for a set of songs inspired by Editors, White Lies and other new indie UK rock bands. Their set of 7 songs was energetic and they’re definitely a band to check out in the future.
Finally it was THE BAND everyone was talking about. The Mission District are based in Montreal with some people of Ontario in the band. At first I had to say i was surprised as these guys are touring more in the UK than in their own city at the moment. But I wasn’t deceived. They delivered a strong performance with tracks like Youth Games, Heartbreaker, their latest chart-topping single So Over You. And the highlight was definitely Lady Gaga cover of Just Dance…So funny!
So, this gig was great to make discoveries within the local scene. Was a nice evening.
