Pop Montreal 2010: Day 3 Picks

Posted on October 1, 2010 |

Rain and grey skies once again on today’s menu but do not fret
fellow festival goers, the sun shall return in kind this weekend.

Timber Timbre @ Ukrainian Federation / 10pm [ ms ]

The show to see this evening is without a doubt Timber Timbre
@ the Ukrainian Federation.

The trio led by Taylor Kirk, a Torontonian by birth, who you’d
swear came right out of the swampy backwoods of Mississipi.

An hybrid of folk, blues and country that’s very gothic in theme
and would fit quite well as background music on any given True

Their self-titled album released last year was shortlisted for the Polaris
Music Prize
and was one of the best releases of 2009.

Not to be missed.

Warpaint @ Place Des Arts / 8:45pm [ myspace ]

UK gloomy gusses The XX, back for their third appearance in less
than a year in our fair city,  fresh from winning the 2010
Mercury Prize
, bringing along with them L.A. buzz band Warpaint
who’s debut album “The Fool” will be released October 25th.

The XX @ Place Des Arts / 9:30pm [ myspace ]

Shortpants Romance @ L’Abreuvoir / 11:00pm [ ms ]

Make sure to check out local band Shortpants Romance, full of
fuzzed out guitars and heavy riffs, reminiscent of those great
mid-90s female fronted bands like Lush, Belly, Thowing Muses and
Veruca Salt. Their debut EP “The Yel-La Tapes” is available
for download on their Bandcamp page.

Savoir Adore @ BBQ Notman House / 4pm [ myspace ]

to engorge yourself on some delicious BBQ and music. Starts
at 4 ends at 8pm.
