Squamish Valley Music Festival Band of the Day: MGH!
One of Vancouver’s most enduring movers and shakers, MGH! wears many hats, including curator at the brand-spanking-new and totally awesome #303COLUMBIA, talent buyer, and, of course in-demand DJ whose Glory Days night at the Biltmore on Saturday is one of the greatest parties you’ll ever attend.
Needles//Pins “What’s His Face” #Vancouver’s NEEDLES//PINS new album Shambirds is beyond A+ and “What’s His Face” is on repeat to death. Instant Classic. Doh.
Antwon “Cold Tears” = Biggie vocal flashbacks + Matrixxman #RuffRyders’esque production = #NotBasic
Drake “0 to 100” Because Drake Because Drakes admits he is on his “LIL MOUSE DRILL SH*T” (will b 1st song in ma set because #Millenials
DJ Dodger Stadium “Love Songs” Samo Sound Boy x Jerome Lol x “Lately I’ve Been Singing Love Songs By Myself” is most unforgettable house lyric of 2014 and it is a bone for old people who remember the Crydamoure/Roule catalogue
Mac Demarco “Chamber of Reflection” ex #Vancouver’ite Mac Demarco and current #Vancouver’ites Needles//Pins tied for writing best album of 2014 and Mac’s garage-sale organ usage is Brian Wilson’esque

First festival experience
Um i think it was seeing Outkast and New Order and Moby’s #BasicFest—I was so dumb i didn’t understand the depth of New Order and I crowd-surfed to Outkast I think because I was skinny then and I distinctly remember we left when Moby played his first song. (insert snore emoji)
