Electric boys with electric toys

Give Montag credit, for a one-man act hemmed in on three sides by keyboards, percussion instruments, he's quite an active performer. It was interesting to see him employ all his gear (including a violin) to lend his set extra pizazz. I'm not wild about his singing voice or lyrics, but as electropop performers go he was an amusing one to watch.

There's something about the T-shirt font that just doesn't go with the message.

Montag shakes some stuff.

... adds a bit of violin ...

... and finally some keyboards.

His new album is called Going Places. Which seems appropriate since he's a Montrealer who moved to Vancouver (for reason he says are explained in his song Best Boy Electric) who's currently on tour of Japan.
