Shirt Not Required

"Bon F***king Soir, Montreal, nous sommes The Stooges", and with that, 61-year old Iggy Pop kicked a hole through the Montreal dusk.

We've just come back from the Osheaga Music Festival and seeing Iggy Pop and the Stooges do their thing (re: create mayhem) was a highlight. We weren't really that interested in the headliner, The Killers, especially after the likes of Iggy, Cat Power, Metric, Plants and Animals, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Booka Shade and Sebastien Grainger. It's been awhile since we've been to such a thing but it was worth the crowds, the muck and urinating into a weirdly public urinal to hear and witness great music. Sometimes it's worth overcoming your worst fears to experience something special. At least this time it was.
