Artist: Hey Rosetta! with India
Venue: George Street Main Stage
Where: St. John’s, NL
Date: June 30, 2016
Summer has finally started here in Newfoundland with some beautiful weather but to me, it never really feels like summer until I see Hey Rosetta!. Luckily, I got to start my summer off seeing them during the first night of Canada’s Big Birthday Bash on George Street.
Local group India kicked off the night with a great performance that really got the crowd warmed up. They’ve got a few tracks up on BandCamp that I highly suggest checking out.
Then came the main event, Hey Rosetta!. For the entire day, the weather was threatening to rain and during the first song, the downpour came. This didn’t dampen the spirits of the crowd or the band and luckily it didn’t last long. Hey Rosetta! are always a a favourite of mine to see live and this was a new experience for a me, as I’m usually pretty close to the front for their shows. This time I got to photograph the band and then decided to watch the rest of their set from the stairs at the very back. It was a different vantage point and I really enjoyed it.
