UK duo Wet Leg came through Toronto for a sold out show at The Phoenix Concert Theatre.

To say there was a lot of buzz about Wet Leg would be an understatement. It was no surprise that the show sold out and that the crowd had an awesome time. I was pretty happy to be able to be there and capture these images.

The crowd was right there with the band for the short, energetic and fun set. Of course, the biggest reaction was reserved for their hit, "Chaise Longue", which finished off their set and had everyone bouncing along.

Dizzy opened the show. My pics and thoughts on their set are right here.

And some music from Wet Leg:

"Wet Dream"

"Ur Mum"

Dizzy was a late addition as the opening act for Wet Leg at The Phoenix Concert Theatre. I was pretty happy with that because I love Dizzy and haven't seen them in quite a while. 

Of course, they put on a great show. It was a cool set, including many of my favourites like "Sunflower", "Pretty Thing", "Stars and Moons", and "Roman Candles". Sooooooo good to see a Dizzy show again and hopefully they'll have some new music on the way for us soon.

My pics of Wet Leg are here.

Check out all our previous photos of Dizzy from Bridgeworks, Royal Mountain Records BBQ, The Mod Club, Wolfe Island Winter Ball, Royal Mountain Records Festival, their Baby Teeth Release Party, Field Trip and Hillside.

And here's some Dizzy music:

Hillside is back!!! Happy Hillside!

We've been waiting since the summer of 2019 for our Hillside fix. It's been a long time coming, but it was definitely worth it. It felt sooooo good to be back on the Hillside grounds with a community I've missed over the past years.

Here are links to each artist's post featuring photos, a few quick thoughts and music from the artists.

"Are you ready to chill?" was the greeting from Afie Jurvanen as Bahamas took to the Hillside 2022 main stage for their Saturday-night headlining set. Not exactly your typical rock show greeting. 

Well, the crowd loved them. Bahamas' chill tunes were the perfect cap for a hot day in the sun.

All my Hillside 2022 coverage is consolidated right here with links to each artist I covered.

I caught a set by Bahamas back in 2018 at Field Trip. Check out those photos here.

And here are a couple of Bahamas tunes. The first one is a personal favourite.

"Stronger Than That"

"Lost In The Light"

Montreal rock band NOBRO were one of the bands that I most wanted to see at Hillside 2022.

They seriously rocked! To say that their set was high-energy would be a huge understatement. NOBRO take control of the stage and do not let up. The crowd loved the set, and even proved heroic when some audience members got beer for the band. This set was a definite Hillside 2022 highlight for me.

Sadly, due to the schedule changes caused by King Hannah's travel woes, some fans showed up at NOBRO's scheduled time to find they were done and King Hannah was getting ready to perform. Too bad the app wasn't updated in real-time with a notification so fans would know when to catch their favourites.

All my Hillside 2022 coverage is consolidated right here with links to each artist I covered.

And here's a couple of NOBRO tunes:

 "Better Each Day"

"Don't Die"
