The second night of Kelp 17 happened on May 6th at the Dom Polski.
It was one of the exciting nights there.
Everyone was excited the Acorn’s set.
Why? They played mostly from the first album “The Pink Ghosts”.
I for one was excited and haven’t really heard that album except for “Darcy” (covered by Ohibijou) and the seven minute epic “Return To Blackness” (Long story short, when CBC Radio 3 was available live on the web, I asked Grant to request it and wasn’t aware that it was a long track).
With the light fun light show, the set was pretty atmospheric.
All the big Acorn fans were there!
I should have bought The Pink Ghosts (If it was on vinyl :P)
Andy Swan is always great live!
Surprised to see Jon Bartlett “literally” jump on stage to join Andy on a few songs.
I didn’t get to see Recoilers
But I was like “WHOA! They were pretty rocking”.
Wished I got to see the rest of the set.
I was like wow this band is very energetic!!
Here is a video I took and it is the second song of their set.
Here are the rest of the photos.
