by Tiana Feng ALL CAPS was blessed with a weekend of wonderful weather. Patrons who camped were treated with late night entertainment by the beach. I didn’t stay but I heard Digits played a set by the water. — If I closed my eyes, I would have never imagined Watershed Hour to be as young as they looked. They’re probably just a little bit older than Unfinished Business, but these girls seriously rocked out with no gimmicks. I wish I could play drums as well as Laura Klinduch. Bang With The van Gogh by Watershed Hour — We gathered around the beach for Pachamama. People were welcomed to go jump in the water as they enjoyed some tribal and native sounds. Their meditative percussion and experimental melodies made me feel like I was being mentally healed from something. A dancer painted in blue interacted with the audience and the sand. PACHAMAMA by PACHAMAMA — Matt Cully (of Bruce Peninsula and Misha Bower serenaded us on the beach with songs from their latest project Eons. — Wavelength has always been known as breaking down the barriers of musical genres and one of their most interesting pics of the evening was Montreal’s Elfin Saddle. Throughout the set there was a variety of interesting sounds created from a half-accordion, a musical saw, cello, ukelele and this giant tube thing. Songs were delivered in a mixture of English and Japanese. — Magneta Lane played some familiar sounding pop-rock tunes. I saw them a few years ago and they still look and sound exactly the same! — I was excited to finally see Beliefs this album cycle. Their shoegaze-pop self-titled is among one of my favourite releases of the year and they definitely did it justice on stage. Catch My Breath / Violets by Beliefs — I’ve seen blues rock duo catl a couple of times over the past few months but they always put on dance-worthy show that calls for multiple beers. Hell, I even bought some beers. Soon This Will All Be Gone by catl — Day 2 of ALL CAPS was worth coming to for Rich Aucoin alone. I’ve already seen him multiple times but each one of them have been a blast. Plus, he is always finding different viral videos to sync his songs to. A Rich Aucoin makes you happy to be alive just being at it and I guess that’s one of his goals considering the title to his recent album. There was plenty of stage diving, an even bigger parachute and when I turned around, the audience behind me all held sparklers. Do me a favour, if you haven’t been to a Rich Aucoin show yet, go when he’s in your town!
