The JUNO Concert series this year wasn’t half bad. I attended the one held at the Horseshoe with The Beauties and a ton of other similarly amazing bands (Arkells, members from Broken Social Scene, Tragically Hip, The Order of Good Cheer, etc) and it was awesome.
But the best and most memorable part of the night was definitely Bahamas performing this incredible Neil Young cover (the legend is about to release his first album with Crazy Horse in nine years, so it’s especially timely). I think everyone in the room had chills just from how beautiful it sounded. I am so happy someone was filming this – though I don’t think it truly captures the magic that happened that night – you really did need to be there. Even the Arkells performing a Tragically Hip song with Gord Sinclair didn’t compare to this.
