Sigur Rós in Ottawa

Last weekend in Montreal was amazing. I didn’t think it was going to be possible to top it. This weekend topped it. We had a great time just hanging out. And then, on Sunday night, we saw Sigur Rós. The opening band was called Amina, a quartet of girls that are (according to the sticker on their debut ep) long-time collaborators of Sigur Rós. They were spellbinding – in fact, I was so blown away by their performance that I ran out to the lobby during the intermission to buy the ep. And then Sigur Rós came out. They were awe-inspiring. One of the most intense shows I’ve ever seen. And the music and vocals are positively unearthly. The show was only made better by our front row seats. I’ve put a few photos up at my flickr site.
