LOOKOUT Presents: Flying Lotus July 11 at Club Lambi!

Red Bull Music Academy, LOOKOUT and The Goods are proud to welcome experimental producer Flying Lotus on Saturday, July 11, 2009 at Club Lambi in Montreal.


Since 1998, Red Bull Music Academy has seen over 500 lecturers and 600 emerging music makers walk through its doors, studios and stages, with past annual editions landing in culturally rich cities such as Berlin, Dublin, New York, London, Sao Paulo, Cape Town, Rome, Seattle, Melbourne, Toronto and Barcelona. As a participant of the 2006 edition in Melbourne, Flying Lotus serves as a shining example of what Red Bull Music Academy hopes to achieve.

 A work of bass-driven metaphysics, Flying Lotus’ Los Angeles could have been regarded as a lone dispatch from a distant musical plane. Instead it has struck an ultimately resonant chord with everyone from the indie pack to Massive Attack, soul heads, and Portishead, as well as music critics across the globe.

 Flying Lotus’ records have gained notoriety for their infinite replay value; each listen reveals a rhythm or melody that had previously gone unnoticed. Now, the industry is taking notice. A 2006 graduate of the Red Bull Music Academy in Melbourne, Flying Lotus has continued on to rack up an increasingly impressive resumé. Following his first album 1983, Flying Lotus was approached by the seminal British label Warp for a record deal, in addition to being selected by Radiohead to remix their song “Reckoner” from In Rainbows.

 Now, Flying Lotus brings his infamous live show to Montreal. Anyone who has attended one of his legendary live sets is familiar with the stark contrast between them and the records. When Flying Lotus performs live, it’s like the splitting of the atom in a nuclear bomb. All of the intricacy that ties the records together is unleashed and converted to raw sonic power, fueling a relentless, kinetic mess on the dance floor. In other words, Flying Lotus goes BIG live. This is your chance to see a master at work and at play.

Flying Lotus plays Saturday July 11 at Club Lambi with special guests My Man Henri, Speakerbruiser (Megasoid/Sixtoo), and Lunice

Tickets are $10 in advance and are available at Off The Hook, Moog Audio, and Admission.

18+, Doors open @ 9, Show @ 10

Recap: LOOKOUT presents the official Phoenix afterparty at Blue Dog

This past week Lookout handled the official afterparty for Phoenix at Blue Dog! The band's sold out show earlier in the evening was incredible - they proved beyond any doubt that their hype is well-earned. If you don't know, now you know.  Afterwards, the band came down to Blue Dog for the official afterparty and things got wild. This was a great showing for the band and it was our pleasure to show them Montreal's finest. Check out some pics from the evening...

Phoenix's opening act Amazing Baby gave a special DJ set at the Dog. Yeah, they got hype too. Also spinning were bar owners Team Canada and Trevor Barnes of Tokyo fam(e)!

Thanks to Phoenix, Amazing Baby, and Team Canada for another great night at Blue Dog. Next up is Banana Split Sundae...
