Another Fantastic Year at Interstellar Rodeo 2013

For their second year in a row, Six Shooter Records once again pulled off a fantastic Interstellar Rodeo!

It felt twice as crowded as it was last year, because it was. Last year was their first year and we loved how it was easy to get a seat and you never had to stand in line. This year it was sold out! But despite being more crowded, it still didn't feel overly busy: the lines weren't too bad and we needed all the people to keep everyone warm! The only downside of this year's festival was for sure the weather - it was cold and damp. Fortunately, that didn't take away from the wonderful music!

Some highlights:

Deep Dark Woods: Harmonious twang as usual. I'd love them more if the lead singer starting acting like he was having fun out there though.

Mike Plume Band: I love his Fools for the Radio album and was so excited to see him live! Always good tunes.

Danny Michel and The Garifuna Collective: The highlight of my festival! So happy! So uplifting!

Danny Michel and The Garifuna Collective: Yes, he's playing turtles, and yes, he's playing a jaw bone.

Seriously, go buy their Blackbirds Are Dancing Over Me album - so awesome! Here's a short video I took, just a fraction of how lovely it was!

Can you spot Jim Cuddy?

Sarah Harmer: Lovely as usual!

Shout Out Out Out Out: Definitely a band to experience live!

All-Stars with Danny Michel, Jim Cuddy and QuiQue Escamilla:  My second favourite session of the year - so fun!

Skydiggers: The lead singer totally reminded me of the lead singer from Oysterband!

Elliott Brood: As usually it was a rockin' good metal banjo-y chair dancing yelling time! My third favourite!

Steve Earle and The Dukes: He makes even me feel nostalgic for the good ol' days!

I really enjoyed Interstellar Rodeo this year. The music was awesome, the food was tasty, and best of all I got to hang out with really nice people! I can't wait until next year!
