It was a jam packed Saturday at TURF on July 6th.
Very long and fun day for Day 3 of the festival:
The list of acts playing were Larry & His Flask, Hannah Georgas, The Felice Brothers, Skydiggers, Dawes, Matt Mays, Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls, The Lowest Of The Low, The Hold Steady and Flogging Molly
Started of the day at 11:30am with Larry & His Flask from Oregon.
They had a upbeat bluesgrass punk folk rock music and was a pretty entertaining band to catch!
Hannah Georgas played over the west stage at 12:20pm.
Hadn’t seen her play in awhile and first time hearing materials from the self-titled album.
Hannah had more of a electro/synth-rock pop sound than the indie pop from “The Beat Stuff/This Is Good” era.
Robotic and one song which then changed into Jesus & Mary Chain’s “Just Like Honey” was my favorite part of the set.
Next was New York’s The Felice Brothers.
Another first timer to see live.
I was really impressed with their blend of indie roots, folk and Americana country music.
Toronto’s Skydiggers charmed the audience with their roots rock music.
You can say they are a staple in Toronto’s music scene.
Kind of strange with that stature they had to play at 2:10pm.
Dawes from Los Angeles was the next band to play.
They totally rocked it out with their music.
Audience was getting excited!
They sure put on a great set!
Matt Mays played a rocking set at the 4:20pm.
At 5:30pm, I was excited to see Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls.
Hadn’t seen him since he played Ottawa Folk Festival a long time ago.
He has become so popular now with his folk-punk and alternative rock music.
He blew everyone right out of the park!
It was totally bonkers.
I was glad that he played Wessex Boy.
Definitely a highlight to Day 3 so far.
After that set it was The Lowest of the Low’s turn to play.
They played a great alternative rock set.
At 8:10pm, The Hold Steady was next to play and was definitely a highlight to TURF.
They got everyone on their feet with their alternative rock music.
Craig Finn is such a animated singer!
Irish-American band Flogging Molly was the final band to play TURF.
I wasn’t really familiar with their Celtic folk/rock/punk music music but they do have a big fanbase.
The band was pretty much entertaining to see and wasn’t chaotic from what I heard.
