It was the final day of the 20th annual Ottawa Bluesfest.
So why not write a review for this.
The day started off pretty rainy.
I headed over at the River Stage and caught most of Farewell Davidson‘s set.
They played a great rock set.
While waiting for the next band to play in the rain.
I finally got a chance to see Montreal’s Groenland.
The band is riding high with their debut album The Chase and wave of Montreal bands doing well.
They played a wonderful set of their orchestra pop rock music.
Headed to the Bell Stage to catch Vancouver’s Said The Whale.
I’ve seen them so many times and I could never get sick of tired of seeing them live.
They played a mix of tracks from their repertoire of albums from Howe Sounds/Taking Abalonia, Islands Disappear, Little Mountains and hawaiii.
Went back to the River stage and checked out The Darcys.
The band was recently nominated in the Polaris Music Prize long-list for Warring (Which I love).
They played a intense rock set. IMostly played from their self-titled and Warring.
Happy to hear Muzzle Blast.
Caught parts of Moist.
USS was obnoxiously crazy.
Even old people were dancing to their music.
Lastly I stayed for Sam Roberts Band.
He never disappoints live and the audience totally enjoyed it!
Nice ending to the festival.
