Godspeed You!

The return of a Montreal band brings tears to the eyes.

Next month I’m going to see Montreal band Godspeed You! Black Emperor. The last time I saw them play live was as close as I’ve ever come to tears at a concert. The band’s ability to affect an audience is in my opinion unparalleled in music. It’s a transcendent, deeply sad (and yet somehow intensely hopeful), and ultimately cathartic experience with both film and music. Truly inspirational.
