Yukon Blonde; fun fun fun!

In just 5 days, 700 Canadaian musicians rocked out all over Toronto’s venues, sharing their music with the nations most important ‘music people’ (this festival was a few months ago… better late than never though, right?!). I was lucky to attend one night of this festival, very excited to see The Balconies and The Wooden Sky. Now, while I, the sheep, am used to wooly curl-rings laying around all over the farm from my family, I must say…. I have never seen so much facial hair and ink all on one place. Despite this culture shock (if you will), I discovered a new band worthy of much attention that night.

Ladies and gentlesheep, I bring you YUKON BLONDE!

Sitting through the openers at a concert can be extremely tedious – all you want is to see the band you came for. They can never be as good as the band you came to see because you just don’t have the same excitement for them. This was not the case for the nights openers YB.

Yukon Blonde, as pictured above, literally started the night off with boom. I came wanting to see the other bands, but these guys just blew me away. They ended their set with an epic 3 minute or so jam session and they managed to set the bar high for the rest of the acts. They used all five band members to create powerful vocals and background vocals. These guys just came off to me as a group of friends who just want to live life and make music together, and it works for them. They put on a fantastic, energetic, and overall FUN show, which is probably why I went on their myspace as soon as I got home that night. It is bands like these that are memorable to us – their energy lets you know that they are there to share their music with you, and that is it. Their energy lets the audience know that the band respects us, and that we deserve to hear them at their best. So, on that note, check these guys out!:
