Yeah Yeah Yeahs at Bluesfest and Filling-In On Air at CKCU-FM [Summer Entry]

Note: Off-season blog entry.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs at Ottawa Bluesfest
The day after Ottawa Bluesfest, I had the opportunity to fill in on-air at CKCU-FM from 5-6pm. I somewhat stumbled speaking on-air and hopefully it wasn’t a problem. I called it the WildWorks Show and I failed to mention my support of Canadian indie music. I know I played two non-Canadian tracks but I just love Zero by Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Here’s the player to listen for anyone who missed it:

A Reminder to Check My Summer Page and a Bluesfest Entry [Summer Entry]

Note: Off-season entry.

With Casey of Elliott Brood

I want to remind people that this blog on a Summer hiatus, I created a Summer page for what I have done lately. Here’s the link again, http://wildworks.wordpress.com/summer2009.
I was able to renew my Flickr account to Pro as I am able to keep providing photos for future entries.

Canada Day – July 1

On Canada Day, I was where the “smaller musical acts preforming at Majorโ€™s Hill” for the first part of the afternoon. Quote taken from Apt613.
In case if anyone doesn’t know about the Summer page, I posted a link to my Canada Day photos, http://www.flickr.com/photos/lenny-wu/sets/72157620834245226/.


Ottawa Bluesfest Time (for Week 1)

Several Cisco Ottawa Bluesfest photos are up.ย  http://www.flickr.com/photos/lenny-wu/sets/72157621219759012/ (Bluesfest in the Byward for July 9, 2009), http://www.flickr.com/photos/lenny-wu/sets/72157621256447478/ (Arrested Development). Photo from above was after Elliott Brood’s late night concert at Pier 21. It was a rowdy, romp and sweaty performance. The crowd danced and jumped like crazy and I decided to join in the fun later on. Overall, an excellent performance from Elliott Brood and the opening act, The Soiree (I forgot to mention the band opening up). I was surprised to see people I met from other concerts in Ottawa.
Before checking Arrested Development, I did check out the end of The Proclaimers at Bluesfest in the Byward and yes, I did hear I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles). Yes, I remember the word, โ€œI would walk 500 milesโ€.
Loads of photos from Cisco Ottawa Bluesfest consisting of The Balconies, Sunparlour Players, Land of Talk, Jenn Grant and Thunderheist. Taken on July 12, 2009. http://www.flickr.com/photos/lenny-wu/sets/72157621240992777/. In a way, the only band repping from the 613 that I checked out were The Balconies (not covered on Apt613). I missed out on other Ottawa bands playing at Bluesfest.
There’s Ohbijou at Zaphod Beeblebrox as part of Bluesfest in the Byward. http://www.flickr.com/photos/lenny-wu/sets/72157621384834754/
Basia Bulat at Mavericks on July 13, 2009 (Last day of Bluesfest in the Byward): http://www.flickr.com/photos/lenny-wu/sets/72157621437296332/.

Happy Summer to all.
