Osheaga 2012 Preview! Part 2: What to see on Saturday

Alright all, here is part 2 of the Osheaga Festival preview! Saturday’s schedule is just as ram packed as Friday, and another day I will have a rough time picking who to see and who to miss! Check out some of the artists below.

1. The Dø – French and Finnish band, folky, dancy, bit grungy, female vocals.

2. Memoryhouse – Toronto dream pop duo signed to Sub Pop. Listen to The Years EP. Canada’s answer to Beach House

3. Portugal. The Man – Just, really stoked to see these guys live. Fired their drummer Spinal Tap style mid-show for unknown reasons.

4. Calexico – Sometimes described as “desert noir”, equally as stoked to see them. Did an excellent split with The Walkmen sometime back and recorded with Iron & Wine.

5. Black Lips – Self described “Flower Punk”, straight out of Atlanta Georgia and have an insane live show. Vomiting on stage, urination, nudity, although word is they’ve calmed down a bit.

6. Plants and Animals – Montreal’s own indie rock. Main staging it mid afternoon

7. Cursive – These guys have been together for close to 20 years now. Toured with the best of them, definitely a band to catch.

8. Young The Giant – Rock band from the states, a song featured on Glee that has now gained seven million hits on YouTube. Kind of sound like Jimmy Eat World.

9. Young Galaxy – Vancouver based dream pop band. One of the my favorite band names of all time. Very fun, playing the smallest stage in the Park, but sure to fill it to the brim. Their video for We have Everything is pretty fantastic as well.

10. A$AP Rocky – Critically acclaimed debut mixtape LivLoveA$AP, toured with Drake, straight out of Harlem and arrested in a brawl the night before his debut television performance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

11. Garbage – Well, they’re certainly not a heaping pile of waste, that’s for sure. Shirley Manson is still a sexy bitch and I would love to see if they’ve still got it.

12. Yeasayer – Recently released their new album stream via an online scavenger hunt. One of the acts I’m most excited for.

13. Feist, Snoop Dogg (or Lion if he would prefer to be called), Jesus and Mary Chain – I don’t really need to do a write up of these guys, both epic in their own right, all worth seeing.
