This year’s House of Paint added a concert portion to their event on Sunday September 16th.
It was called “Concert Under The Bridge”.
Here is part two of two from the concert.
The acts that played from 4:00-8:00pm were:
I was very excited to see Kid Koala’s set.
All I have to say that he exploded my mind with his turntablism music.
Without the typical Kid Koala fashion, he had to put on his Koala costume.
Apparently he made a bet with his label Ninja Tunes about the upcoming album.
I really enjoyed the set, it wasn’t the one I heard from last year’s Pop Montreal when he opened up for Arcade Fire.
It was adorable that his daughter came on stage holding a big stuffed Koala bear.
He played the Yo Gabba Gabba song and people went insane!
What surprised me was at the end of the set, he played Skanky Panky. That song was used on a old CBC Radio One show called “Sounds Like Canada in the Summer“.
After Kid Koala was Flight Distance.
There was some delay on stage but the Ottawa act got everyone on it’s feet with their music.
Forgive me for saying this, I swear one of the members sort of looks like Damian of F**ked Up.
Maestro Fresh-Wes kicked it up a notch.
It was an amazing set!
He had a special guest on his set, it was the lovely and talented Measha Brueggergosman.
It was the highlight of the set since he fused hip-hop with opera.
Of course he ended off with the song “Let Your Backbone Slide”.
Lastly it was Shad to come on stage.
He was brilliant great live!
Happy hearing Rose Garden!
He got the whole audience energized with his music.
Overall it was a great way to end off this year’s House of Paint 2012.
