The Festival De Musique Émergente [September 3, 2017]

On the last day of Festival De Musique Émergente (FME).
I got to see Jean-Michel Blais, Le Couleur, Klô Plegag, Matt Holubowski, Hoan and Anemone.
All I can say that the 5pm slot was brutal trying to run from one venue to another.
At least it was a good workout.

Jean-Michel Blais @ FME 2017
Wonderful performance by Montreal pianist Jean-Michel Blais. The only downside that you can actually hear beer cans opening up, clicking of the cameras and moving of the chairs. Still a captivating set!
Le Couleur @ FME 2017
Ran to see parts of Le Couleur! Fun electro-dance pop music! Performing tracks from their long-listed Polaris Music Prize album P.O.P.
Klô Plegag @ FME 2017
There was a free concert down by Lake Kiwanis. Klô Plegag was the first of three acts performing. Nice acoustic folk rock set.
Matt Holubowski @ FME 2017
Second act was Matt Holubowski. I enjoyed his set that had English indie folk music.
Hoan @ FME 2017
Caught Hoan at Cabaret de la Derniere Chance.
Anemone @ FME 2017
Finishing off the last night of FME 2017 was seeing psych-pop act Anemone!

After four fun days and nights at my first FME!
I really enjoyed this community festival despite not understanding a word of French to the locals.
Hopefully will want to come next year depending on the line up.
