Review: Day 1 of i(heart)music festival

August 20th was the first night of the i(heart)music festival.
This year it is three nights of great Canadian Indie bands.
Playing at Cafe Dekcuf were:
Converters @ Cafe Dekcuf
Parlovr (they are called Parlour)

The show started off with Ottawa band Converters.
Saw them before during the spring and they were very fun to listen to.

Parlovr is a band from Montreal.
This was my first time seeing them.
All I can say is WOW! They were amazing live.
Rocking like crazy!
I like the set up with the arrow traffic lights they had on stage.
Parlovr @ Cafe Dekcuf
Fun and wild hearing them play.
I hope to see them again and recommend you people to see them live.
Bought their album and can’t wait to hear all of it.

Still Life Still was next and don’t need any introduction since I’ve covered them on here.
If you don’t know they are a Toronto band and signed on the Arts & Crafts label.
Another amazing performance by them considering this being the third time.
Have such a great live stage energy presence.

It was interesting to see the five members play on the small cramp stage of Cafe Dekcuf.
They were here to play Ottawa for the festival and pre-release their debut album “Girls Come Too”.
The interview I did with is hilarious and it will be awhile to edit.
A band that you should definitely check out live not because they are on Arts & Crafts.

Sadie Hell was the final band.
I didn’t get a chance to see them because it was very late and I didn’t want to miss my bus.
I was kind of bummed out because the band had Jacquie Neville and Liam Jaeger of The Balconies playing.
I did get a few shots of the Ben Welland playing with his guitar.
Coming out from Ben’s mouth that Sadie Hell finally finished making the album.
I would definitely buy that on vinyl

Overall it was a nice start for the festival.
