So the Osheaga 2012 line-up has just been revealed and there are absolutely no words to describe how ECSTATIC I am.
For one, I have not been to a Snoop Dogg show in 10 years and for those of you that know me, it’s obvious that I’ve got nothing but love for the Snoop ‘D.O double G’ and the rest of the 213 crew (R.I.P Nate Dogg).
The Black Keys are also set to perform, which I am so thrilled about! I’ve managed to miss their MTL shows TWICE in a row so hourraaay for them coming back (and hourraaaay to me for knowing about it more than 48 hours in advance).
Although these two aforementioned performers go down as ‘legendary’ in my musical books, the most important reason for my utter delight in this line-up is…. FLORENCE FLORENCE FLORENCE!!! If you haven’t guessed it, I am a die-hard Flo fan… No words to describe how much I love her music. I can listen to her songs on repeat all day, every day and sing along until I am blue in the face (just ask my neighbors or anyone who has been in my car). I hate to admit this but my love for her was actually beginning to waver, as I could not understand for the life of me why she hadn’t included any MTL dates on her previous tour, nor her latest 2012 North American tour. To my relief, I’ve been proven wrong… How dare I be so fickle a fan? SHAME ON ME! Anyway, now that I know she’s on her way here, I can relax and continue to obsess over her incredible talent without feeling like a neglected fan.
Florence, Snoop and The Black Keys aside, there are some other pretty awesome groups set to perform as well (other personal faves include Aloe Blacc, Metric, Bloc Party, M83… the list goes on).
So that’s that. Just thought I’d spread the word and share my excitement!

Saw this documentary last night and LOVED IT! If you’re a Tribe fan, a lover of jazz-infused hip-hop (think De La Soul, Native Tongues, Digable Planets etc.) or just looking to kill some time…. This is a MUST watch.
