Mitski, Japanese Breakfast and Jay Som @ Bar Le Ritz PDB [July 23, 2016]

On July 23rd, I literally took the train to Montreal and dropped what was happening in Ottawa to go to this show at Bar Le Ritz PDB.
All three acts were fronted by Asian-American female indie pop rock bands which was unheard of!
Playing at the show was Mitski, Japanese Breakfast and Jay Som.
This was the first time I have been to an Montreal all ages show that ended before 11pm!

Mitski @ Bar Le Ritz PDB
Headlining the sold out show was New York City’s Mitski. Puberty 2 was released in June to rave reviews! It was a captivating set with the packed audience singing every words to her songs. I was really glad to see her and part of me felt she was like the Asian version of St. Vincent vocal wise.
Japanese Breakfast @ Bar Le Ritz PDB
I was mostly excited to see Philadelphia’s Japanese Breakfast perform. Playing tracks from the Psychopomp, I was happy hearing In Heaven, The Woman That Loves You and Everybody Wants To Love You. There was no way I wasn’t going to miss this with the buzz the band has been getting!
Jay Som @ Bar Le Ritz PDB
San Francisco songwriter Melina Duterte who goes by Jay Som started off the show. Performing a solo set of indie alternative pop music. Playing selected tracks from Turn Into and I Think You’re Alright (a 7″ out on Fat Possum Records). It was a captivating and attentive set!
