Grand Dérangement

Grand Dérangement. Canadians are pretty dorky, huh? (no offense, Steve). Case in point, I caught this Nova Scotian rock band, Grand Derangement, tonight — think Riverdance meets Garth Brooks meets Genesis (the drummer was the lead singer). Sung completely in French. All I can say is none of them could quite pull off the leather pants they were wearing. The keyboardist flailed about so much I thought he was going to fall off the podium he was on. But the bassist was pretty cool. I don’t think you can play bass and not be even just a little bit hip.
