The Savoy Room – Saturday, 10:45 p.m.
“Hey, it’s the French Andrew WK,” my compadre pointed out as the lanky, long-haired artist D’Eon stepped up to his keyboards for his showcase in the tiny Savoy Room. Well, not quite. As a solo artist armed only with his keys and his voice, D’Eon was a master of mixing the elements of dreamy synth-pop with funky R&B esque 80’s beats. It was fun, hypnotic and hinted at promising things to come from this Montreal artist. When Thom Yorke gives a special shout-out to this guy on his blog, it’s not hard to see why.
