Mini Playlist of the Day: The Grove

A couple weeks ago when everyone was at VELD, Lollapalooza or Osheaga, I was in my own backyard at The Grove Music Festival sponsored by Canadian Club Mixed & Ready. Although it was only a one day, lesser known festival, I had an amazing time. Originally the festival was to take place in Niagara Falls, and Macklemore was to headline the show. When they switched to Toronto, Macklemore dropped out along with a few others, and eventually Phoenix was officially set as the headliner. The line up was as follows:


Unfortunately I found out the day of the fest that Icona Pop ditched too. I was pretty darn disappointed by that especially after discovering they were at Osheaga the very next day. Maybe it would have been better if it was on a different weekend or something. It was a pretty cheap festival around the corner, so no complaints from me there. Here’s a mini playlist from some of my favourite acts from the show:

1. “Bourgeois”- Phoenix
2. “Dark & Stormy- Hot Chip
3. “Rain Of Gold”- Young Empires
4. “Burning”- Nightbox

Phoenix & R. Kelly Live Mashup

What happens when you mashup a classic with a classic- nostalgia overload!

Last night at Coachella during Phoenix’s set, can you believe that none other than Mr. R. Kelly comes out of hiding to mashup his classic, “Ignition” over their classic “1901”?! I must say, this is probably one of the weirdest but coolest live collabs I’ve ever seen. I do love “1901” a lot, and wished there was a little bit more of an even mix to it, but then again if R. Kelly comes to do one song then why not right. I was singing along all the way through, even when R. Kelly threw in a bit from “I’m A Flirt” and Phoenix threw in some of “Cholroform” from their new album to be released later this month. I love nostalgia all the way, so good stuff!

BONUS: Here’s one of my favourite “1901” mashups with “Young Folks” by Peter, Bjorn and John called “Nineteen Hundred and One Folks”.
