McPherson surprised me. When I entered the Fort York grounds I was greeted to some groovy rock and roll. A fabulous throw back to the 1950s. This was the perfect way to start the day. The songs were lively and no one seemed to mind the rain.
Justin Townes Earle
FUCK. I remember someone writing about him for Being There. I think it was Zayne or Russell, one of those awesome folks really liked Justin Townes Earle. I remember listening and really digging it, but never really searching, and I’m kicking myself for that now. His songs are great. His stage banter is hilarious. He really puts on a great show. This was a fabulous time.
Fitz and the Tantrums
Sha Na Na :: Woodstock as Fitz and the Tantrums :: TURF. They really seemed out of place, but they put on a hilariously over the top fun party. They really liked shouting “TORONTO,” but haven’t learned the second ‘T’ is silent. Silly dance music that made me giggle.
Sadly no relation to R. Kelly.
Have I mentioned TWO DAYS TO BELLE & SEBASTIAN! OMG! OMG! OMG!
