Waited up past midnight in order to download Art Angels.....fucking Google Play store didn't have it available.  Gave up at 12:45 am.  Woke up and downloaded it at 7 am.  Tried to burn a CD but it fucked up.  Went to work.  Streamed album & listened repeatedly all day.  Bought new CD-Rs........made an Art Angels/Darkbloom MEGA CD.

 

 

Neat older tune...

^Even without Janelle there in person that song kicked ass last night in Toronto.

 

Holy shit......Grimes is one heck of a performer.  Her live show has really progressed (based on live vids I've watched) since Visions came out.  She was all over the stage...dancing, headbanging, twirling her pony tail, kicking, jumping all over.  All this while wearing a compression boot on her right foot!  Her voice was very good, especially since she was fighting a sore throat (she had to cancel 2 shows about 8 days ago due to flu).  She is sometimes playing keys, fiddles with the synths etc., samples her own voice, etc.  Even though a portion of the music is pre-recorded, Grimes still makes it a quasi-authentic live experience.  (did that make sense?)

 

My wife, who generally doesn't like my music, was impressed with Grimes' performance & would see her again.

 

From the balcony...

Waited around after the show. Dancers went to the bus. Then tour manager carried Grimes' boot to the bus. Manager shortly thereafter told everyone that Grimes wouldn't be coming out.  The bus left about 10 minutes later.  I stuck around talking to another fan.  Then an SUV pulled up.  The driver said, "Go home folks, I already took her to the hotel."  OK, time to go home.   

 

It was quite cold (at or below freezing) and with Grimes fighting a sore throat I certainly don't blame her for not meeting with fans.

Merci.  :D

 

This tune was a beast Sunday night...

 

 

On "Scream" Grimes rapped in Russian instead of using a recording Aristophanes' Mandarin rapping.  :o

Nicole Dollanganger opened for Grimes. She has a nice voice but her vocals were drowned out by the guitars/bass.  No drummer.....the guitarist thumped a kick drum & hit the high hat cymbals with the neck of his guitar.

 

When I walked over to the group near the bus after the show I happened upon Nicole. She turned around, I said "hi", she said "hi". She then walked past me with her two bandmates and headed down the sidewalk. I yelled 'bye' and she turned & waved.

A fellow CHVRCHES/Grimes fan went to last night's show in Chicago.  He got this short vid of Grimes meeting fans afterward...
