Osheaga Music Festival, Day 2, 3 August 2013, Montreal


Day 2 of Osheaga in Montreal had a pretty good line up.  The sets did not disappoint.

Highlights (in no particular order):

1) Tricky – Shirtless, emotional, and alot of wicked tattoos.  He also invited audience members onto the stage, which included a young girl of about age 8ish.  I think she may have found her calling.

2) The Heavy – Kelvin Swaby is an excellent frontman.  The music is powerful, soulful, and groovy all at the same time.

3) Wild Nothing – What a great way to start off the festival.  I wish they had played my favorite song ‘Chinatown’, but I was happy with ‘Nocturne’ which had my favorite lyrics…”You can have me, you can have me…all”.  GEEZ!!!!  The band also played a new song ‘Ride’, which was quite excellent.

Was hoping to see Frank Ocean, but I guess I didn’t hear about the schedule change.  So instead Macklemore & Ryan  Lewis came on.  I was not going to stand an hour for this, so I ended up sitting on the grass and changed my salonpa patch during this set.  Sadly, I left during this set, so I could avoid the mad dash to the exit at the end of the night, which meant…I missed Beck.

Then I went and got a bahn mi at Vua on Saint-Denis.

Enjoy the photos from today.  Did I mention, Tricky’s tattoo art is pretty sweet?

New Order on Sunday!
