Griveous Angels at National Music Centre Stage 6, 3:20 p.m.
The band includes member of parliament Charlie Angus, who previously was a member of the punk band L’Étranger with Andrew Cash (who also became an MP). Meanwhile, Stephen Harper sits at home, working hard on his Beatles covers in case he ever gets the folk fest call.
The Provincial Archive at TD Stage 1, 4:45 p.m.
You don’t even need a pass to see the great Edmontonians The Provincial Archive (though you can still buy one for Sunday and get in to see the rest of the fest). Curiously, the band’s third album is already out in Germany, while on this side of the ocean we have to wait until next month.
Hydra at the Mainstage, 6:35 p.m.
Feist’s new project Hydra was first supposed to be one-off thing for the 2012 Polaris Music Gala, but the crew (which includes Apostle of Hustle’s Andrew Whiteman, his wife Ariel Engel, Snowblink’s Daniela Gesundheit and Dan Goldman) decided to take the show on the road and spread the love. There isn’t even any video that I could find online, unless you are desperate and want to have your speakers blown by the terrible audio of this video over here. You’ll have to wait for the real live thing to get a taste.
The Jayhawks at Mainstage, 7:40 p.m.
Sunday seems like a good day for a classic headliner. The Jayhawks haven’t released an album since 2011, but they’re touring to support re-releases of Sound of Lies (1997), Smile (2000) and Rainy Day Music (2003). You can see them promote the latter album in an 2003 appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman above. —Jon Roe
