OK, Osheaga, day 2.
We really hit our stride today, and we’re just going to keep this quick. Day 2 was not rainy. Day 2 was sunny. In fact day 2 was beautiful. You know what else is beautiful? How music brings us all together. Right?
We got the day started with UK electro duo HONNE, who’ve been riding the festival circuit non stop this season. We were glad to catch their upbeat set which included hits like “Warm On A Cold Night” and “Someone That Loves You.”
We bounced over to Danny Brown who took over the Green Stage smashing through hit after hit, rocking head to toe Moschino, taking a moment to smile and expose his tongue to the crowd between songs.
Broken Social Scene grabbed us by the lapels and shook us awake with a dose of uplifting and anthemic power rock. This band makes the most sense when they play in front of such a large group, and boy did they really play their little guts out. Wow guys.
Major Lazer is either “Horny dancehall for large crowds”, or “dancehall for large horny crowds”. Actually by the end of their set it was both. Pretty fun.
Meanwhile over on the Valley Stage, Father John Misty had everyone in the crowd swooning. He wore a long trench coat and sunglasses at night with all the swagger.
Nicolas Jaar closed out the evening at the Island Stage. It was like overweight insects mating to a frenzied drum beat. Creepy, beautiful, and the right amount of sketchy for us.
