Osheaga Day 1 - 8/2/2013

“I think it’s dark and it looks like rain.” One out of two, Bob. If ever an Osheaga headliner would thrive under stormy skies, it’s the Cure, but the downpour forecast earlier in the week never arrived. Just as well — this was Robert Smith at his most crowd-pleasing.

The set list was calibrated for a festival audience: a generous delegation from Disintegration, early appearances by In Between Days and Just Like Heaven, and an overall tone that didn’t leave much room for crying jags. The chirpy Mint Car and Doing the Unstuck (“let’s get happy”) bracketed the beloved-by-some Friday I’m in Love, comically botched by Smith after he said: “Sometimes, very occasionally, we’ll play this song. This is the right night.” [Montreal Gazette]

While Lollapalooza was going down in Chicago over the weekend, Montreal was getting its own three-day festival, Osheaga. The fest had many of the same artists at Lollapalooza, with day 1 giving us sets from The Cure, Beach House, Vampire Weekend, Alt-J, DIIV and more, in addition to sets from artists who didn’t play Lollapalooza, like The Gaslight Anthem, Ellie Goulding, and more. Pictures of day 1 are in this post.

Like with Lollapalooza (and other upcoming shows), Death Grips were scheduled to play the fest but cancelled.

Update: Day 2 pics are up now. More day 1 pictures below…
