This year TURF was filled with many great acts, from some nostalgic gems from my youth like Jimmy Eat World and Death Cab for Cutie, to some Canadian Classics including the Barenaked Ladies.
I think I bought my ticket the minute I saw Matt Mays was on the lineup. One of my East Coast favourites, the band played an incredible set from start to finish. Knowing about his tendency to join other acts from my time in Halifax, I had a feeling there might be some surprise guests. I did not expect that during the finale of Cocaine Cowgirl, the band would be joined be a few members for a killer ending including SAM ROBERTS. It was magic.
This was now my six time seeing the Dogs, who never fail to put on a great show. They came on at 6 o’clock, during the pouring rain. However after a few jams the sun came shining down. Ain’t the power of rock n’ roll amazing.
