Day 3

Another awesome day of live music at Sled Island! The day started off with the Polaris Prize long list announcement at the National Music Centre with a surprise performance by Basia Bulat doing “Tall Tall Shadow”. Quite unexpected, and very good. After that, we checked out an in-store performance at Sloth Records with Fury Things from Minneapolis. Following a short break, we checked out experimental electronic artist Oneohetrix Point Never at the Central United Church doing a sublime  set of droning ambient soundscapes complete with visuals that looked like ReBoot under the influence. We closed the day off with an excellent bill at the Legion, completed by Victoria’s one Fountain, Freak Heart Waves, Brazilian Money and punk legends Mission of Burma. What a night!

We’re excited for the CJSW, Absolute Underground and Burger Record showcase’s as well as Dan Deacon to close off the night. More happy sledding to come!
