Aug 04, 2013 Live Phoenix Palma Violets Vampire Weekend The Cure Daughter

Montreal’s Parc Jean-Drapeau provided a gorgeous backdrop for the first day of the annual Osheaga Festival. The sold-out event, which is now in its eighth year, boasts a lineup that features some incredible indie-rock upstarts such as Alt-J and Palma Violets alongside renowned veterans including The Cure, Beck and New Order.

Aug 04, 2013 Live OFF Festival 2013 OFF Festival 2013: Day 2 UL/KR Skalpel Glass Animals Jens Lekman Julia Holter Godspeed You! Black Emperor

Walking through the field on the second day of OFF Festival, I was faced with a large group of teenagers, sprinting towards me and singing a chipper refrain from Zbigniew Wodecki’s triumphant performance the previous evening. It was a heartwarming moment. After all, isn’t that the point of heading to a festival in another country?

Aug 01, 2013 Live OFF Festival 2013 Patrick Wolf

The seventh annual edition of the OFF Festival (held in Katowice, Poland) kicked off with an inspiring set by Patrick Wolf.

Jul 03, 2013 Live Festival International de Jazz de Montréal 2013 Hot Club de ma Rue The Cat Empire Thus Owls

Since the event I’ve been covering these past few days (and will continue to cover through the end of the week) is called a “jazz fest” I decided to kick off the day by taking in some of the titular genre. Hot Club de ma Rue fit the bill nicely. Other high (and medium) lights of the day included Thus:Owls and The Cat Empire.

Jul 02, 2013 Live Festival International de Jazz de Montréal 2013 Mozart’s Sister Mucca Pazza Woodkid

My second day at Festival International de Jazz de Montréal was also Canada Day. I celebrated the occasion with vegetarian poutine, Perrier, and a pair of street performers who did what they called a “PG strip tease.” Reflecting on this, it all seems both logical and novel. How else would you want to mark such a momentous event? Music was also available at ever turn, the highlights and lowlights being Mozart’s Sister, Woodkid, and Mucca Pazza.
