From artist/workspace Friendship Cove in Montreal comes the insatiable hype crew Think About Life, comprised of Miracle Fortress’ Graham Van Pelt, Shapes and Sizes’ Caila Thompson-Hannant, and solo singer Martin Caesar. Blending old school hip-hop samples with their wistful indie rock, the band turns youthful nostalgia on its head, crafting love songs about teen pregnancies and runaways. Then there’s the matter of their live show–a frenetic, crowd surfing call to arms, where the audience always ends up dancing for their lives. Do not miss this chance to see the Montreal that came after the scenesters left.
