Kaytranada’s Boiler Room Set (Montreal)

Dancing at a live show can feel awkward. When you introduce a camera into the equation, things can get even worse. People clutch their drinks. Body movements get more rigid. You can practically see self-awareness locking up people’s limbs.

But not Kaytranada’s 2103 Boiler Room set in Montreal, which runs like a low budget play, aimless and strange but refreshingly unpredictable.

We open with a man’s desperate attempt to dance with the girl in multi-clored jeans hiked up to her waist. She smiles shyly and then pushes him away. Other club-goers move forward for their moment in the spotlight. There are costumes. An impressive wizards staff (beers stacked to 6 or 7). And a mix of sweating dudes and seductive woman, all shifting in and out of view.

Maybe it’s Kaytranada. Maybe it’s the booze. Whatever it is, it’s a Boiler Room classic and deserves a re-visit.
