The Veils / Foreign Born @ La Sala Rossa ( 07. 28. 2009 )

To kick off the Osheaga festivities, a few shows were set up in
venues around town under the Osheaga “In The City” banner to get
us in the mood for the big blowout this weekend.

First up on the schedule was New Zealand’s The Veils with Foreign
and Faces On Film opening.

Missed Faces On Film’s set but did arrive on time for Foreign Born’s.
I discovered them trough watching “Chuck” of all places.
Their song “Into Your Dream” was featured in the Pilot episode.
I did not get the hear it last nite has most of their setlist was mainly
songs from their new album “Person To Person”.

To be honest, I only like that “Chuck” song so I kind of zoned in and out.
They’re pleasant enough but nothing to write home about.

The Veils however brought their A game. They’ve got a very affable
frontman in Finn Andrews. Very chatty with the crowd, easily moving
from playing lead guitar to the piano and sang in a very earnest,
emotional fashion.

Two of my favorite songs on the new album “Sun Gangs” served as
bookends for the show. “The Letter” which seemed a bit off key at
the beginning but was still appreciated and the title track performed
at the end with only Finn alone with his guitar.

A nice closer for the night.

Here’s a few videos I shot. The video/audio quality still on the
crappy side but I did just buy a new digital camera (that shoots
video in 720p HD) so the quality will vastly improve. Something
You’ll get see with all the footage I plan on shooting this weekend.
