Singer/songwriter Geoffrey headlined a Wednesday night show at La Sala Rossa (the Red Room) on the first night of the festival. This gorgeous space is in a historic building built by the left wing Jewish community in 1932 on what is now Montreal's famed St-Laurent district. In front of lettering spelling out his album title, Coastline, the BonSound artist and his band treated the crowd to a set of his unique brand which blends elements of indie rock with electronic and downtempo trip-hop. I admittedly hadn't heard of Geoffrey before watching his performance at M but it left me impressed and inspired to say the least. I've been listening to Coastline on Spotify since and have been loving the way he weaves metaphors about travel and nature in with the more abstract tropes of freedom and change.
