Live music galleries: Frightened Rabbit [2013]

(I got the idea for this series while sifting through the ‘piles’ of digital photos on my laptop. It occurred to me to share some of these great pics from some of my favourite concert sets from time to time. Like my ‘Vinyl love’ series, these posts will be more photos than words but that doesn’t mean I won’t welcome your thoughts and comments. And of course, until I get around to the next one, I invite you to peruse my ever-growing list of concerts of page.)

Frightened Rabbit at Osheaga, 2013

Artist: Frightened Rabbit
When: August 4th, 2013
Where: River stage, Osheaga, Parc Jean-Drapeau, Montreal
Context: A few days ago, I posted about how I recently purchased the 10th anniversary pressing of Frightened Rabbit’s 2nd album, “The midnight organ fight“. And of course, I made mention of frontman Scott Hutchison’s untimely death. It started me off thinking about the tragedy of it all, had me revisiting a bunch of their tracks, and got me reminiscing about the one and only time I ever got to see them live. My friends, Tim and Mark, and I decided to go to Montreal’s Osheaga as a means of celebrating a certain milestone birthday and we saw a great many excellent bands. I was especially excited for Frightened Rabbit’s set on day three because they had released their fourth studio album, “Pedestrian verse”, earlier in the year and it was in the early running for one of my faves for the year. Mark and I braved the medium-sized, early afternoon crowds (leaving Tim in the shade to nurse his hangover) and we were treated to an amazing performance.
