On the third night of Arboretum Arts + Music Festival, I made the right choice and go to St. Alban’s Church which was definitely the hot show to attend and very sold out!
Considering the other show which I won’t mention only let in 10 festival passes in and you had to pay $15.
The big headliner of the night was Julie Doiron and The Wooden Stars.
It was a long time coming for this reunion.
All I have to say that it was a wonderful set to hear and with a packed crowd.
They were very happy about it.
Evening Hymns was the second band to play.
It was kind of déjà vu because Jonas was wearing the same t-shirt at Kelp 20 back in May.
I swear something about his music I couldn’t stop getting too emotional and cry.
Hearing Dead Deer and You & Jake was gut wrenching to hear.
But they did preview a lot of new material which was more upbeat and reminded me of the Wooden Sky.
Couldn’t be any ecstatic seeing this set!
Bosveld was the first band to play.
You can say that it was their homecoming show.
Since they did a mini tour by bike.
They grew from a duo to a full band.
They played a indie folk pop set.
Overall it was another successful night for Arboretum Festival.
