Feist @ Olympic Island Show, Toronto. June 24, 2006.
With a lineup that some were calling lack-luster, after 3 years of epic summer shows on Olympic Island, local heroes Broken Social Scene sold it out (the Island, not themselves, so shut it, all you nay-sayers.) Perfect weather, a near-perfect crowd, a proper (yet not overbearing) security team, and nary a hitch throughout. To do a day like Saturday justice in a write-up is impossible, so I’m hoping the photos will do the talking.
Feist – Ms. Leslie was suffering from a bad flu, and her voice showed it, but where she was short on breath she was long on charm. She requested tomato soup of the audience to soothe her throat (no, no one had any on hand) and graciously thanked the fans for their understanding. Unfortunately she choose to omit Inside and Out from her setlist, but there are some tough notes to hit there, so it was understandable. And if I could look this good sick, hell, I’d be sick all the time.
