#OSHEAGA! Day one!

Hi guys! Matt here, live from Osheaga in Montreal for casiestewart.comThe festival has been great so far. Lots of sun, some clouds, good food (but looooong lines), and most importantly, unreal music! And now, I present to you:

Rue St. Cathrines. Super festive. Reminds me of Church Street in Toronto.

Watching fun. from the side! The crowd knew every word and head banged to Some Nights.

This is Yukon Blonde jamming out. Such a solid indie rock group. Definitely a highlight.

This is me drinking beer. Enough said.

Down With Webster was my favourite part of the day. Those dudes know how to bring it. They tossed beer cups into the crowd and got us jumping to every beat.

Franz Ferdinand! I’ve been waiting to see these guys for years and they did not disappoint! Playing a combination of new & old tunes they were a blast and a half.

And finally – Justice. What can you say about two dudes who make such awesome music and put on some of the most amazing shows ever?  Can’t do ’em Justice. (lololololol)

The sun started setting and Sigur Ross came out. Their smooth, dreamy melodies had everyone in a daze. Such an experience.

Write It Down

I’m ready. I’ve always been ready but now I feel it in my bones. The last few days have been filled with excitement, creativity, and I’m stoked about life. I took an adventure into a few notebooks I’ve scribbled in from the stack beside my bed, I was reminded how much I truly love writing. When I was 15 I wrote and published  an anthology of poetry & prose and I never really stopped. I’m keen to have a book written by December 1, 2012. I’m writing it down & telling you to make it real.

In other news, while I was Googling myself in Google Books I found out that BRIAN SOLIS mentioned me in his book “The End of Business as Usual“. I have blogged about him a few times and I love his work. Smart man. My credit in Dear Photograph also came up. I’m taking that as a sign I’m on the RIGHT TRACK baby!

Molson sent me a bunch of beers yesterday. Thanks TEAM! Is it the weekend yet?

Ford Canada featured me and two other Canadian bloggers who attended the Ford Innovation & Design conference in Michigan last month. See the post HERE to get our thoughts on an awesome experience.
