Concerts of Colour!

So wintery little February in Montreal, my friend E.J. and I went to a  City and Colour concert. The first thing you must know about this band is that Dallas Green has a silky, soulful voice and, therefore, this is the only justification you need for going. The second thing you need to know is that you do not need to be a die-hard City and Colour fan to go. E.J. has been a fan for a time, mais moi?, uhm, not so much. That whole 'you're a-poser- if-you-don't-know-every-line-of-this-Blink-182-song' condemnation from middle school no longer applies in college/university/life thereafter. That's right girlfriend with le nose ring and pink tipped hair,  anyone is free to get to know a band and simply enjoy!

City and Colour, in particular, has a super relaxed vibe while simultaneously retaining the ability to get you hyped. The concert was the perfect little biddie antidote for the strangle of papers and studying and attempting to convince your departmental office to give you credits from exchange in France.

Also on another note, it is highly advisable to stand in front of amusing people at a concert. Not only does this make for overhearing hilarious/ridiculous conversation but also somehow makes the entire night even more of a comical/unforgettable experience. Mmk, well actually EJ and I cannot go anywhere without making a ruckus of something, but in any case, we are both advocates of humorous circumstances. So stand with some characters :)

Ah yes, that last picture is classic E.J. Also! I forgot to mention that there was some sort of event going on at Place des Spectacles near the theatre. We obviously had to ask some tourists to take pictures of us in front of the paparazzi wall. Mehehe.

hehe! February in Montreal is actually not that bad ;)
