It’s that time of year in June where I head off to Toronto for the 18th Annual North by Northeast Music Festival.
The festival this year runs from June 11 – 17.
Still hasn’t hit me yet but I am very excited in going down.
So why not do a list of what to see at the festival this year.
I will head down next Wednesday (June 13th)
Here is part 1 for who to see on Wednesday night.

I am very excited this week because I am going to be heading down to Montreal for Pop Montreal.
This is their 10th year in existence.
This year everyone is going to be talking about this “band” who will be doing a free outdoor show.
So I will give you a list of who I might get to see from September 21st to 24th. *I will be missing out Sunday since I have to head back to Ottawa for this show.*
Here is part I for Wednesday and Thursday.
I seem to have a bad luck on trying to see Charlotte Cornfield play live in Ottawa.
She is a lovely and talented singer/songwriter from Montreal.
Seems when she is in Ottawa, there is a conflict with another show or plays all the way at the Black Sheep Inn.
I probably have a better chance in Montreal or Toronto on seeing her live.
Anyways Charlotte released a two single teaser from her upcoming album “Two Horses“.
The closest I’ve seen her live was when she played in the band “Bent By Elephants“. (Review from their show)
On the third day on my adventures of Pop Montreal.
Let’s say I was still reeling from the night before since I came back home late to my friend’s place very late to due Montreal buses going at weird times.
Also it was the first time my brother came down for the festival so we can stay in the hotel.
From my previous post on who to see, sadly I didn’t get to see Pat Jordache and Dog Day.
Here is how my day three began.
On the last night of my fun times in Montreal.
I went to Le Divan Orange to see two bands.
I was very excited to see The Belle Game play live (Check out their BandsUndone session) and in Montreal.
I was hoping to see them as a eight piece but they were a trio due to the Easter weekend and family obligations with the other members.
It was nice to see them as a trio but with two different members.
The band played The Suitcase Song and Tiny Fires. They did sing some new tracks like “I’m Fine” and a cover.
They were great to see live and was entertaining. Le Divan Orange suited them very well. Can’t wait for them to come back to Ottawa.
Bent By Elephants was up next.
They were a eight piece band.
I was not familiar with their music except for finding out that Charlotte Cornfield plays drum in that band.
Their music is indie folk-pop with some jazz/blues beats to it.
They were amazing live and that lead singer can belt out what she can sing.
I didn’t stay long for their set due to being tired from the night before.
Overall it was a great night at Le Divan Orange.
Also I bumped into one member of Parlovr!!!
The weekend part of the Ottawa Folk Festival is the best part.
Why? Because they have the singer/songwriter workshops where the musicians collaborate with other musician.
The workshops has a theme or its mostly a jam session and sing whatever songs.
It was a nice sunny (no rain) Saturday summer for the festival.
