Last night, almost three months after turning Parc Jean-Drapeau into a giant dance floor, the french electro-duo Justice was back in town at the Metropolis on a cold October night. The show was completely sold out and just happened to be the last part of a big North-American tour.
Montreal native Alain Macklovitc aka A-Trak was opening once again for Justice and it t didn't take long before the big crowd got crazy over his dance mixes. A few minutes into his DJ set, he explained how Justice and him were a big family and how proud he was to be from Montreal, gaining cheers from the crowd. His set turned the entire ground of the venue into a dance floor. After A-Trak's set was done and he had left the stage, people were still dancing and eager for the main act, Justice.
Around 9:30, when the well-known cross lighted up announcing Justice was about to hit the stage, a wave of people hit the floor as most of the crowd ran to be closer to the stage. It became infectious and soon it was almost impossible to do anything other than join the parade and dance to Justice's hits and mixes. Most artists would wait towards the end of a set to play their bigger hits; not Justice. Barely 20 minutes after the start of their set, the venue was filled with screams when the firsts notes of D.A.N.C.E started. From the front row to the very last one, from the upper part to the parterre, the whole venue sweated out during the set until the band left.
As the show came to an end everyone left the venue with an incredible energy created by the band and the memory of how many times Justice had repeated that Montreal was one of their favorite places to play. I'm sure I'm not the only one who wishes to see Justice back sooner rather than later!
