An electric pow wow brought the Ottawa neighbourhood of Mechanicsville out for the first night of Westfest. Headlined by Ian Campeau (DeeJay NDN of A Tribe Called Red), the night also featured ten performances, including ones by local hip-hop performers Cody Coyote and Neeco Poster Boy.

Born and raised with thoughts and aspirations of becoming a famous bassist in Sarnia, ON; Emily Plunkett now lives in Gatineau, QC, and considers National Capital Region home sweet home. A product of the Beatles, MuchMusic and the Southwestern Ontario summer festival circuit (circa 2000), her interest and love in concert photography came almost completely by accident when her journalism program at Algonquin College required courses in photojournalism (and she quickly realized that photos taken at concerts using a DSLR are enormously better than ones she was taking on a point-and-shoot she bought for a trip to England). She is extremely proud of the fact she has seen Sloan in some form or another 25 times.
