This week the gang got wet and were asking themselves how much music is too much? The answer: Its NEVER too much. Stay tuned to find out more!
To say this week was anything less than spectacular would be a flat out lie!
We started off on Wednesday with a massive flash watergun fight in the Halifax Commons! There couldn’t have been better conditions for an event such as this, so it was a perfect way to cool down on a sunny summer day! With a turn out of a couple hundred people sporting everything from super soakers to water balloons to buckets of water! There was even someone dressed in full storm trooper armour, I soaked them immediately while yelling DOWN WITH THE EMPIRE!
Live 105 is all about supporting local talent so Thursday night was no exception, we headed down to one of our favourite places: Timber Lounge Halifaxe to see Hello Delaware and Floodland play! Let me tell you did they ever put on a great performance, Dana From Hello Delaware has the voice of an angel and Floodlands set was air tight! Timber lounge kept the atmosphere light and friendly and they served only the upmost delicious craft beer! They plan on putting on many more shows throughout the year and are currently constructing a massive sound stage so hold on to your butts because when its up and ready its going to blow you away!
Friday? More like Fri-YAY! We made the long but totally necessary journey to New Glasgow for The Riverfront Music Jubilee. Friday saw the likes of The Motorleague and The Glorious Sons grace the stage and boy oh boy did they ever put on an amazing show. The place was packed and it puts a smile on my face to know that a smaller community like that can come together to support local and major Canadian talent! Oh and Brett Emmons from Glorious Sons is a barefoot beauty who absolutely wails louder than a highland banshee and kills on harmonica!
Saturday we found ourselves in full Jubilee mode as Elle and I made the trek back to New Glasgow for our second day at this amazing festival. Elle purchased a snowcone and some how managed to choose from 75+ flavours (including dill pickle) while I bought my first ever shirt from a merch booth. (Arkells obviously) We then stood front row and rocked out to the likes of Jimmy Swift Band, Sam Cash & The Romantic Dogs and Canadas current favourite Arkells! All three shows were great but Arkells had a phenomenal stand out show that was not only entertaining but also high powered, energetic and engaging! Always a treat when those boys roll into town, and we at Live 105 are beyond stoked to hear their new album Morning Report which comes out August 5th! – Benoit & Elle
