Time flies! It’s already Saturday and the festival is almost coming to a close. Friday started off with Saskatchewan psych-metal band Shooting Guns playing a loud and sludgy affair for the CJSW Showcase at the Tubby Dog. Following a brief, but torrential downpour we caught headlining act Blitzen Trapper playing for a soaked crowd outside at Olympic Plaza. After that Burger Records & Hardly Art presented Vancouver’s Dead Ghosts, Portland surf rock trio La Luz and Oakland’s Shannon & The Clams at the vintage Golden Age Club. By far one of the best shows I’ve seen at Sled thus far.
On to the Royal Legion to the close the night off with Calgary’s own Teledrome. Followed by an incredible performance by Baltimore’s Dan Deacon, playing a raucous mix of electronic party music, while conducting dance-offs and full scale pandemonium!
Saturday should be another good day. Stoked for the Weird Canada showcase featuring Fountain, Hag Face, Soup Cans and Crosss. Also Spiritualized, St. Vincent, The Shivas and Rocket From The Crypt.
