August 25, 2013

The New Pornographers played the CNE Bandshell last Saturday, August 17, 2013. I’ve seen them three or four times now. I think the first time was on a Saturday night, February 3, 2007 at Nathan Phillips Square. It was -27 degrees.

Like that first time, Neko Case was not there. Unlike that first time, it was a nice warm Saturday night in Toronto.

There’s something awesome about seeing good bands during the CNE. Maybe it just reminds me of one of the first shows I’ve ever seen, Rusty at the Bandshell in 1996. I still think of it as one of the best ever.

The Ex had a lot of great bands play that year, and the year after. Another fond memory there is of Pure playing Anna Is a Speed Freak…awesome. I don’t think I saw another Exhibition/Bandshell show after that year until Sloan in 2007. Now I’ll think of The New Pornographers amongst those great Exhibition day/Bandshell Nights.

Here are some video’s I took at this show:
