Had a wicked 1st night saw old friends, heard some pretty amazing bands. I have some pretty interesting stories for 1 night in, the strange ones I will save for the end of the festival as I am sure there are more to come with 3 days and nights left.
Thanks to knowing some of the people working the event, I discovered that the night venues were to Capacity, so in order to avoid missing out on Austra I stuck with Alix Goolden Hall.
Class Actress, surprised me as it appeared to be a duo not Trio according to the information I could dig up. Just a reason you need to not trust wikipedia alone when it comes to Music especially. Just as a note Class Actress is not: Acting Class. It was definetly a Synth pop sound with so much more to it. It was so hard to put a thumb on describing other than a heart pounding great dance tunes when the show is live.
Doldrums, Airick Woodhead’sMontreal based electro-emo dance project currently on tour with Austra. He kind of made you giggle with his mushrooms=equals no merch and then had you up on your feet dancing.
Austra was amazing,Their Live show is so much better than listening to the album. It had your heart pumping and grabbed you into the show. They invited everyone to come dance on stage with them while they were performing. That made the money spent worth it right there. They were very Gracious about the whole festival which just made them an even better band right there.
