“Joe Bonamassa is a guitarist of many layers of skill. He can shred, but he can speak a world of emotions with a single note. “ -Seattlepi

“Few artists can exert such a pull over so large a crowd, and it is a magical moment.” Sonic Abuse

“The standing ovation at night’s end was one of several standing Os the crowd offered up over the course of the night. Bonamassa and company earned each and every one of them.” -LittleVillageMag

“Great guitarists are often called "surgical" in their precision, but Bonamassa has mastered the guitar so completely that his precision has become more like literature. He speaks through his guitar. He tells stories.” -Syracuse.com

Invité: MON DOUX SAIGNEUR



It's been at least two years since the last time the Jeffrey Lewis band hit Montreal, that was a spectacular gig, don't miss this one! New York City's greatest indie-rock/folk/art/punk/comix band continue touring the world with "Manhattan," their newest album on Rough Trade (fitting well on the record label that brought you the Smiths, the Strokes, the Fall, the Television Personalities, Jonathan Richman, etc). Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts continue to prove their worth as one of the essential cult acts of the era.

"On ne remerciera jamais assez Jeffrey Lewis de troquer régulièrement ses pinceaux de dessinateur pour une guitare. Comme dans ses comics, le New- Yorkais a toujours excellé dans l’art de transformer, sous ses accords bancals et ses tournures de phrases loufoques, les détails insignifiants du quotidien en épopée drolatique ou en conte moderne crève-coeur. On l’a ainsi jusqu’à présent aussi bien suivi dans sa quête perpétuelle de l’âme soeur que dans ses histoires fantasques de mains géantes dévoreuses de nonnes. En 2011, A Turn in the Dream-Songs voit Lewis revenir à ce qu’il sait faire de mieux : sublimer les aléas de la vie banale. Enregistré sur un deux-pistes dans un studio vintage de Manchester aux côtés d’invités prestigieux (des membres de The Vaselines, Dr. Dog, Au Revoir Simone et The Wave Pictures, entre autres), ce sixième album construit de grands édifices antifolk sur des petites miettes d’existence." (LES INROCKS)

"Dazzling" - Mojo

"Really great and impressive and inspiring and exciting... There's not a lot of people that can tell a story and use language like that in music." - Will Oldham

BIO: JEFFREY LEWIS & Los Bolts
Born and raised New Yorker Jeffrey Lewis is a comic book artist and indie-rock musician, treading in the musical realms of Yo La Tengo/Jonathan Richman/Velvet Underground. Beginning with homemade cassettes in the late 90s, and moving on to touring the world and releasing "proper" albums on Rough Trade Records since 2001, Jeffrey's career has included sharing bills and tours with the likes of The Vaselines, The Fall, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, Roky Erickson, The Mountain Goats, Daniel Johnston, Devo, Pulp and many other luminaries. In between his contemplative folk narratives and garage indie-punk songs Jeffrey is known for including illustrated songs in concert, sometimes covering historical topics (like "The History of Cuba”), or strange flights of fancy (like "The Creeping Brain"). Current band incarnation Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts features Mem Pahl on bass and Brent Cole on drums. Rough Trade Records (label of The Smiths, The Strokes, etc.) has released the seventh Jeffrey Lewis album, “Manhattan,” mixed by John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., War on Drugs), widely acclaimed as the best Jeffrey Lewis album to date; Jeffrey has self-published twelve issues of his comic book series Fuff, and Jeffrey's writing, illustrations, comic books and music have been featured by The New York Times, NPR and The History Channel (among other places).
