Alt-J Album

Alternative bands are weird. Half of them sound the same, and the others are pretentious. However, in music, being pretentious and weird is good for marketing.

October is here, and that means that Fall is getting into full swing: the leaves are changing colours, baggy sweaters are making their annual comeback, the lineups for Pumpkin Spice Lattes are longer than ever…and the countdown until Halloween has officially begun.

New Murder Mystery

“Welcome to Criminal Law 100 or, as I like to call it: “How to get away with murder!”.” Such is the main tagline for ABC’s extremely promising new show How to Get Away with Murder, created by producer Shona Grimes and starring actress Viola Davis in the main role.

Last Thursday, I attended the Black Keys and Cage the Elephant concert at the Bell Centre. The show lasted about three hours and was great from beginning to end. The audience spent very little time in their seats during the concert, which speaks to the quality of the music and performance in general.

League of Legends 2014 World Championship

It is that time of the year again! The time when millions rush to Twitch.tv, YouTube, Azubu, Lolesports.com, or even buy live tickets to watch the final clash between the best of the best. The fourth season of League of Legends is coming to an end, meaning the 2014 World Championships are here. The best teams from every region will compete to claim the grand prize.

Season Gr8

Spoilers for Doctor Who season eight are to follow! To put this article into perspective, I was not a huge fan of the last three seasons of Doctor Who. Yes, it is because I have a lot to say about Stephen Moffat’s abilities to run one of the biggest television shows ever. Will I be criticizing him in this article? Nope!

Based upon the same plot narrative of almost every other season before, the Boys (and their new Netflix masters) seemed to have sided with the “if it isn’t broke, no need to fix it” rule. Expect the same uniquely Trailer Park brand of slapstick, just this time, a little overboard, it seems Ricky has gotten even more stupid (despite his earning of his “grade 11” at the end of season 7).

Osheaga

For those of us who live in Montreal, the amount of tourism can seem like a bit of a mystery. We don’t have warm, shiny beaches. We don’t have great prices or shopping opportunities. There’s no food here that’s any less authentic anywhere else. The weather is nothing special, and the people aren’t particularly nice. So why, in spite of all this, is Montreal a major tourist spot for summer trips?

Vans Warped Tour 2014

After a year without a Montreal stop, the 2014 edition of the Vans Warped Tour included a Montreal date, and I was lucky enough to have the chance to attend. I had never been to Warped Tour before, but I really enjoyed the overall layout of the event, as it was so different from the Heavy Montreal set up I’ve become used to. Warped Tour really is an event that offers something for everyone.
