The Osheaga Music and Arts Festival was ill as fuck last year, when I went with some of my close personal bros and saw motherfucking Tyler, the Creator (made me grin but feel old), Brand New (made me grin and feel old, but in a good way, like the movie Boyhood or Timehops from when I was fatter), and Anamanaguchi (made me grin and feel young and turnt), as well as a buncha other artists with average scores in the 3’s or higher in our humble little database.  The festival is held in Montreal’s Parc Jean-Drapeau, right on the Saint Lawrence River.

I am going again this year and am pretty stoked.  If you’ve been to these kinds of massive festivals before, and I imagine that many of you have, you know that scheduling conflicts come with the territory (and that, no matter what, you will underestimate how long it will take you to make it from one stage to another).  Here are a few conflicts that are burning me up inside,so you help me make the call:

Silversun Pickups vs. Oh Wonder – I kinda liked the new Silversun record, and curious as to what they’re like live, but Oh Wonder much more my speed these days…

RHCP vs. Vince Staples – I’ve actually never seen RHCP, but this crowd will be massive, and Summertime ’06 was fire…

Daughter vs. Feder – This one prob come down to Saturday afternoon vibes…

Coeur de pirate vs. Haim – Gotta go with the home team here, right? CdP in her native tongue in her native land feels like a must…

Anyway, this should be good.  If you have an opinion on any of the above, or on any other act worth checking out,  post it in the replies.

Days of Future Passed
July Talk and Jazz Cartier have been creating a lot of noise in Toronto, and the former put on an incredible live show.

^Seconding the July Talk rec. One of the best live performances I've seen so far this year.

Silversun Pickups put on a great performance as well that's a good blend of stuff from all their albums.

Looks like a cool af lineup

Do yourself a favour and see Skepta

Went to Osheaga in 2014 and it was a lot of fun. Wasn`t too interested in the line-up this year though

Saw Oh Wonder a couple of weekends back. They were great live, it was exactly how you'd expect, and sounded just like the record. Also the lass is really attractive but gets this really disturbing look on her face when she smiles sometimes, so that's fun.
Though saying that I've never seen Silversun Pickups live, as much as I'd love to.

Saw Daughter at the same festival, also amazing, especially Fossa. They had a touring multi-instrumentalist who was playing their last show, so I'm not sure what they're doing now. But they were great when I saw them.

To anyone digging hip-hop, Dead Obies would be an interesting gig tonight. They're a local bilingual band, and musically quite interesting. The thing is, Radiohead are playing simultaneously
