Who: Deadmau5, Eekkoo
When: September 18th, 2020
Where: Royalmount Drive-in, Montreal QC
Last night, Canadian DJ Deadmau5 stopped by Montreal for the final dates of his tour of Canadian drive-ins, which previously took him to Toronto and Ottawa. Following an opening set by Montreal’s Eekkoo, Deadmau5 delivered a solid set made of his classics (“Strobe”, “Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff”) and newer tracks (“Pomegranate”). While the social distancing-friendly drive-in set up lacked the typical intensity of a packed EDM crowd, we must recognize the energy of the crowd present, who had some great set-ups and danced around their cars despite the cold weather. All in all, last night’s set was a much-appreciated reminder of how much live music is missed right now, and in the words of Deadmau5 himself, “A grood break from all this bullsh*t”. If you missed out on this experience, there are still a handful of tickets available for tonight’s show on Evenko’s website.

Hi there! My name is Marie, I am French born and raised, now living in Montreal. I work in Marketing by day, and I’m an avid concert-goer by night. I have always had a passion for photography, and realized that this mixes quite well with my love for live music (the absolute best way to experience music, if you ask me).
