Countdown: Skeletal Lamping Tour

of Montreal has officially kicked off their Ninjas Prove It tour and the first reviews are in. Stereogum has posted a review of their Roseland Ballroom show in NYC and it is glowing! I can't wait for the Boston show! Check out the images above...how can that show NOT be good?

The main set's big finish had a coffin wheeled out onto stage, and from it emerged Barnes, covered in shaving cream. After the song, he said "I want to give you a hug!" and ran and hugged the first row...We had no idea how they could possibly top that, but they managed it with a cover of "Smells Like Teen Spirit." Andrew from MGMT was on that. The place went apeshit. Only Nirvana has played it better.

Also, check out NPR to stream the audio from their D.C. show and to hear an interview with Kevin Barnes. xo
