“Can we get some crazy lights? Everyone will be better off with the crazy lights,” Josh Reichmann, one half of Toronto band Bad Tits yells after a couple songs last night at the Little Burgundy Pop Loft as part of Pop Montreal.

Immediately the stage lights behind and to the side of the band turned a soothing blue-ish colour and began pulsating furiously. The crowd, as it had been since the duo took the stage, swayed back and forth, however it wasn’t until Reichmann got on the electric guitar did the dancing really begin. Backed with live drumming provided by the other half of the band, Sebastien Granger, certainly not an unfamiliar musicians to those devotees of Death From Above when they were still a band, the duo were the perfect opening act for a bill that consisted of them, Indian Jewerly and Holy Fuck.

Despite the venue being well away from the block of other clubs artists are performing at all week, the almost hidden location added to the anticipation of the night’s performances and the band’s certainly delivered.

Bad Tits have a EP out called Garbage Night and the set list consisted of many tracks off said record including “Reincarnate Yourself,” a slow head-bobbing number that quickly turns into a dance-y electro track. Wearing matching white t-shirts Reichmann and Grainger rarely stopped in-between songs creating a club-like atmosphere, albeit a super-hip one. They’re incredibly talented musicians who have an interest in making the audience move and have the look of a band jamming in your friend’s garage. That being said, they performed one of the best sets I’ve seen in a little while.
