Broken Social Scene / Field Trip Festival June 8 2013

When Broken Social Scene announced that they would be going on indefinite hiatus in late 2011 I had a feeling of depression. I have been a big BSS fan since You Forgot It In People came out but for some reason over the course of 8 years I had never seen them live. A combination of having 2 kids in 2003 and 2005 which kind of kaiboshed a lot of shows through 2006 for me. More recently it seemed like every time they played I had a Ballet recital to attend. A few times in my life I’ve missed shows and wished I had been able to see it even many years later but the thought of not getting a chance to ever see BSS weighed heavily on my happy musical world. I hoped I would one day get the chance and then less than 18 months later was the Field Trip Festival which celebrated 10 years of Arts and Crafts music. I had high expectations for the show and I have to say I was not disappointed at all. BSS played all of You Forgot It In People plus another 5 or 6 songs and it was truly an epic night of music after an already amazing day. At one point there were more than 16 people on stage between the 7 horn players and 5 Girls singing back up. Glorious Horns, Amazing singing, beautiful songs and a fully enraptured crowd. It was the best festival event I’ve been to. And my Turducken hotdog with Sweet Chipotle sauce was great as well.

    I was there too! I went there all the way from Brazil because while I was attending their “last” concert in Rio in 2011 I promissed that I’d be there when they play again, no matter where or when it would be. So I did :) June 8 was MAGICAL!
