Running up & down Dekcuf/Mavericks: part V

After OCFF, I headed up to Cafe Dekcuf.
Hoping to see Yukon Blonde, found out that couldn’t make it because something happened to their drummer.
In last replacement, Leif Vollebekk played their set.

Its always great to see him play live as always.
The only thing missing was his violin.
Great set as always.


Next up was The Gallop.
A Ottawa band that has members of Brights and The Ethics.
Very surprised with the turnout, more like friends of the band showed their support for them.
Their music was rocking fun. Some of their music had instrumentals and some had singing.
People you should check them out.

After them was The Polytones.
Haven’t seen them play in awhile mostly because Ben Wilson has been doing his other band That’s The Spirit.
Always a fun poppy set and always bring out the fun out of a show.

Lastly, Woodpigeon played.
I was hoping for a band set I saw at NXNE.
It was mostly Mark and another member with Catriona Sturton doing harmonica.

Glad I stayed for most of their set and see Catriona play with Woodpigeon.
I liked the intimate acoustic set they did. Not sure if he was previewing new material for the upcoming album Die Stadt Muzikanten.
It was an amazing lovely set.
Hope they come back to Ottawa with a full band.
They are a band that you have to see live.

While that was happening, I went down to Mavericks to see who was playing.
They were:

It was a folk rock night happening down at Mavericks
I’ve see Winchester Warm various times, I alwasy like to called them Poorfolk -2 or acoustic Poorfolk.
