Three years running and just getting better – Heavy MTL does it again

When I saw the line-up for this year’s Heavy MTL, I was floored by the fact that organizers somehow managed to top last year’s with bands of an overall much higher caliber. The sound was dead-on and the only minor technical glitch I noticed was with Billy Talent’s set; after their banner fell down and they didn’t bother to fix it (the show must go on!), the sound guy didn’t turn on the mic until about 15 seconds into their first song.

The organization was on the ball for preventing anyone from getting seriously injured, beer tent lines were reasonable and the stage set up was efficient. In fact, the only thing I could say the weekend was missing was a little more shaded area but that is just Parc Jean-Drapeau for you.
