Mogwai
Sled Island

I’m still trying to properly wrap my mind around (and recover from) the amazing performances (and blazing sun) I was able to experience at Sled Island. It’s hard to believe both the amount and range of wonderful music that was up for consumption over the course of four days, and last night’s set from mainstage headliners Mogwai, shredding guitars with grace like only they can, followed by a flawless late-night club show by underrated Canadian folk rockers Rock Plaza Central, was the perfect send-off to a festival that defined itself on eclecticism and near unmitigated musical quality.

As you know, we’ve been covering the 2008 Sled Island Festival that went down recently in Calgary. In the name of finishing what we started, here are the rest of Rae’s pics from day four of the festival (June 28, 2008)…
