Feeling Festive?

Fri Jul 8, 2005 Miss Vicky 

Lots of Fests happening in Ottawa this weekend. Of course, that's kind of the norm for Ottawa every summer, isn't it? You could spend your whole summer festival-hopping and still manage to miss a ton of events.

On Miss Vicky's agenda for the next 10 days or so: Bluesfest. The Webgeek and I are particularly keen to see K-OS, Daniel Lanois, Alison Kraus, Michael Franti... and of course, ZZ Top (for the camp factor, of course).

But also happening this weekend is a new event, Bankfest. It seems to be largely the initiative of the Bank St. BIA and some of the folks from Ottawa's Pride community, so the street party happening on Sunday will probably look a lot like the street parties we've enjoyed the last couple of Ottawa Pride Days. Without the parade, of course - that takes place later this summer, on August 28. They've got some good acts lined up, so if you're looking for a free alternative to the Bluesfest, head on down to Bank Street, between Cooper and Lewis, on Sunday between 11am and 9pm. There's also an intriguing dance party at the Drill Hall on Saturday night. We may have to head over after Daniel Lanois and shake our groove thangs...

I'm pretty pissed at the organisers of Bluesfest for the whole liquor license fiasco. Actually, I'm pissed at the city for giving in to them and closing the (Laurier?) bridge. This is going to make east-west traffic through downtown a nightmare. Rideau is already closed east-west due to construction, so now 2 consecutive main arteries are going to be closed, because some schmuck put off getting his permit. Tough crap if you ask me. Giving in just means he'll do the same thing next year.

It was pretty clear last night that this year's fest has pretty much been slapped together. They changed the location of the main gate to down by the Drill Hall, the lineups to get in were huge and there was no clear signage to let people know which line was which. Bands that were supposed to show up didn't hit the stage, the Black Eyed Peas were 45 minutes late getting started.... it just seemed kind of....messy.

My beef is the lack of recycling facilities on site. I mean, it's City Hall -you'd think they would provide some blue bins for all the water bottles people will be going through. Nope.

On a positive note, I really enjoyed Tinariwen. And the Black Eyed Peas put on an excellent show - once they got going.

i thought the main stage location was changed to allow for more space for the big acts? there seemed to much less crowding.... (once you got in). there were a couple different place to get in besides the main stage entrance, but the only reason we tried the gate off Lisgar was pure impatience and stubbornness. i heard tales of folks in line for over an hour last night! that's awful!

... ah well. still looking forward to Unified tonight (i'd put a link here - but can't find the handy-dandy guide to posting and hafta get back to my meeting!)

I miss not being in the city for some of the organized noise. I lived a block and a half from city hall on Lisgar & Oconnor for 3 years 95-8. Some things were a bit much to take for loudness like Carib parades reverberating in the building alleys of streets but some was a groove.
