It was finally time to be outside for the Friday portion of Arboretum Arts + Music Festival.
Fun times to be had at the Backlot BBQ which was provided by Town, Murray Street & Rideau Pines Farm.
There was three acts that play and they are did an awesome job.
The first band to play was The Yips.
The band did an awesome solid set of their “Ouija” psych-rock music.
Still can’t get enough of hearing Repeater live.
The second band was Hilotrons.
The new incarnation of the band made them sound really great live.
I had a great time hearing new tracks and favourites.
Finally Kevin Drew of Broken Social Scene was the final act.
It was unbelievable!
Kevin played a mix of his solo materials from Darlings and Broken Social Scene favourites.
The one big highlight was he did his version of Lover’s Spit.
The way Feist played it on BSS’s Beehive’s album with just the piano.
He got the audience to sing along!
This was a great Friday night for the festival.
Afterwards I stopped by at Tropikola and it was fun.
