Summer Songs 2010, 3/7
I once almost saw this band play live, at Edgefest ’99 in Molson Park in Barrie. They were slated with a twenty minute set on second stage, and I strolled over because I was waiting for finger eleven to come blow me away. Now, technical difficulties happen to a lot of artists, so when the set was delayed due to equipment issues, I could be forgiving. When the crowd started booing because they were ten minutes into their slot and still no closer, it was harsh but so is the nature of a festival.
To flip off an unhappy crowd while barely putting an effort into fixing your shit is a HUGE mistake.
Needless to say, they were pelted with water bottles and never did play. I’m pretty sure their career died a one-hit wonder death as well. But what a great, summery song it is.
